Aston Martin V12 Speedster

Exaggerated & Emotional

To the person that thought they have everything from a great job, to a few homes, a G650ER, and a fabulous car collection, you don’t have everything until you have the Aston Martin V12 Speedster – and with only 88 being built you better already be on the list. Aston Martin Lagonda President and Group CEO, Dr. Andy Palmer said: “It makes me enormously proud to reveal Aston Martin’s latest, most exciting special model today. The V12 Speedster is an incredible demonstration of the breadth of capability and determination from the ‘Q by Aston Martin’ team, who have worked tirelessly to create this stunning, two-seat sports car aimed at our most demanding and enthusiastic customers.

It was just over 12 months ago, the V12 Speedster went from going from drawing board to production reality within that short period. Showing the auto world the skills and meticulous planning of ‘Q by Aston Martin’ and Aston Martin Design, the V12 Speedster is a living show car, underlining the company’s commitment to delivering customers a stunning driver’s car, using the engineering ingenuity and advanced materials evident throughout the entire Aston Martin range.

Almost entirely from carbon fibre body constructed

 
 

 

Utilizing Aston Martin’s latest bonded aluminum architecture, the V12 Speedster utilizes elements from both the DBS Superleggera and Vantage model lines to create its unique platform. With independent double-wishbone front, and multi-link rear suspension with coil springs and adaptive damping offering Sport, Sport+ and Track modes, the V12 Speedster also benefits from standard 21-inch forged center-lock alloy wheels. Carbon Ceramic Brakes of 410mm on the front axle and 360mm at the rear are also standard equipment.

Over the V12 Speedster’s unique chassis is a bespoke body constructed almost entirely from carbon fiber. Miles Nurnberger, Director of Design, Aston Martin Lagonda, said: “With the V12 Speedster we do go back a step and look into our past for inspiration. Since the DB11 launch, everything has been focused and very forward-looking. Here though, we find a different tempo. There’s a clear lineage from the 1959 Le Mans-winning DBR1 to our Centenary celebratory CC100 Speedster Concept in 2013. There is also a bit of 1953 DB3S in the mid-section, so it really is our latest incarnation of the Speedster concept. It’s also inspired by fighter jets as much as it is by our history, and it has been created to deliver an incredibly visceral experience, hence why it is a V12, rather than a V8. With the V12 Speedster, we are amplifying all the emotional strings that we can to the absolute maximum.”

Nurnberger adds: “No roof or screen, a big engine, low, with broad shoulders and exaggerated and emotional styling with twin humps and the spine separating the driver and passenger. The light, low, rear-end contrasts with the bold, enlarged grille, unique headlights, and bonnet nostrils at the front. The bonnet nostril we haven’t done in a very long time, but we’ve brought them back. It’s a neat trick visually to allow us to win some space for the V12. It creates this iconic looking vent.

Fantastic & Very British

Now it is the interior that pushes new boundaries, using a mix of traditional and modern materials. Structural satin carbon fiber contrasts with traditional hand-crafted Saddle Leather, chrome, aluminum and even 3D printed rubber. Visually and physically the interior reduces mass, for a leaner, efficient style, but one that retains all the emotion and craftsmanship Aston Martins are renowned for. In front of the passenger is a removable leather bag in place of a traditional glove box, while there’s additional storage space under the rear bumps for luggage. This is the Aston of Aston, a design technology statement that is curvy road-ready

Unveiled here today at Aston Martin’s Gaydon HQ, the V12 Speedster has been shown in a conceptual specification that is inspired by the legendary F/A-18 and will be available for customers to order. Born from an exciting new collaboration with Boeing and created by the brand’s bespoke customization service ‘Q by Aston Martin’, this striking livery takes the legendary fighter jet for inspiration and is finished in Skyfall Silver, with contrasting satin black on the exhaust tips, vent grilles, and vanes. The dark theme is carried through to the interior, with satin dark chrome, machined aluminum, black leather, black technical textile, black carpets, and vivid red Aston Martin scripted door pulls, creating a purposeful look for this conceptual styling.
