With just 88 of them made worldwide, the Aston Martin V12 definitely fits the bill when it comes to rare cars. By combining elements from some of the car company’s most revered models and infusing them with aeronautical design, the Aston Martin V12 feels very much like the culmination of all their work built under today’s highest standards.
Aston Martin V12 Speedster
Under the hood, you’ve got your 5.2-liter, 48-valve, Twin-Turbo engine that puts out a whopping 700 horsepower and 753Nm torque. The engine connects to a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission with limited-slip differential driving for the rear wheels.
When combined, these allow the Aston Martin V12 to reach speeds of 186mph at an acceleration rate of 62mph in 3.5 seconds. It wasn’t meant for a race track, but outside of some nitrous, this car has some getup. As for what’s on the outside, the V12 is definitely a looker.
You’ve got a jetfighter-like motif with lines and air vents strewn throughout to provide cooling to the monstrous engine. The cockpit-like seats are lifted almost directly from the 2013 Aston Martin CC100 Speedster, another limited-edition car with only 2 models produced in the whole world.
The rear of the seats also have see-through windows reminiscent of jet cockpits which give you a clear view of the topside of the trunk. Lastly, twin paired exhausts can be found underneath the center of the car with a spoiler above it for speed (because of course that’s what a spoiler does).
These cars were made in collaboration with Boeing and created by Q by Aston Martin – a personalization service that specializes in creating custom Aston Martin cars.
The cars are set to be delivered sometime in 2021, so if you’re interested in getting one of these rare beauties for yourself, details are on the official webpage. Otherwise, if you’re like us, we can just wait to spot one in the wild.
