Aston Martin V12 Speedster Is a Jet-Inspired Supercar

Aston Martin unveiled its latest limited-edition ride called the V12 Speedster, a roofless, windscreen-free supercar. Created by luxury British marque’s bespoke customisation service ‘Q by Aston Martin’ in collaboration with Boeing, V12 Speedster draws inspiration from the legendary F/A-18 fighter jet and the DBR1 race car that won the 1959 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Under the hood, it’s fitted with a blistering 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 delivering 700hp and 753Nm of torque mated to a ZF eight-speed automatic. Top speed? The V12 Speedster is able to accelerate to 62mph (100km/h) in 3.5 seconds on the way to a limited top speed of 186mph (300km/h).

Matt Becker, Aston Martin Chief Engineer, said: “for raw, driving thrills the V12 Speedster is unparalleled, the fully open element of the car adding a new dimension to the experience. It engages on every level, delivering a precise, involving driving experience, with agility and poise backed by abundant power from Aston Martin’s twin-turbo 5.2-litre V12. Driving doesn’t get any purer than this.”

At the interior the V12 Speedster is using a mix of traditional and modern materials, has satin chrome structural carbon fiber, saddle leather, chrome, aluminum, and 3D-printed rubber.Aston Martin V12 Speedster
