Aston Martin teased a new V12 Speedster – a limited edition open car that pays tribute to the 1959 Le Mans-winning DBR1 and CC100 Speedster centenary concept car. The new V12 Speedster will be limited to only 88 units and the first deliveries will arrive in the first quarter of 2021.
The 2021 V12 Speedster will be powered by a 5.2-liter V12 Twin-Turbo engine that will deliver a total of 700 PS (690 horsepower) and 516 pound-feet of torque. The engine will be mated to a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission mounted towards the rear of the car. Aston Martin also promises impressive performance figures and “superb response.”
Aston Martin Lagonda President and Group CEO, Dr Andy Palmer said: “The V12 Speedster we’re proud to confirm today once again showcases not only this great British brand’s ambition and ingenuity, but also celebrates our rich and unrivaled heritage.
“The 88 enthusiast drivers and collectors who secure the keys to these cars can be confident that in doing so, they are also securing an iconic new piece of Aston Martin history.”
