For those who may have missed the original announcement, the British automaker’s latest production is a combination between the Vantage and the DBS Superleggera. As its name suggests, the car carries a 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 engine capable of pushing out a staggering 700 horsepower and 555 pound-feet of torque, channeled through the rear wheels via a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission. The figures translate to a 0-60 mph time of just 3.5 seconds with its top speed maxing out at 186 mph. Other features include 21-inch forged center-locking wheels, carbon-ceramic brakes, and adaptive dampers.
Only 88 of the V12 Speedster will be built by Aston Martin, each going for $950,000 USD.
Elsewhere in the automotive world, Honda has announced its exit from Formula 1 after the 2021 season.
