The Aston Martin DBR1 It is one of Aston Martin’s most loved racing cars. Firmly anchored in the “David Brown” era of the Gaydon brand, his main feat was a landslide victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1959, as well as being crowned the three-time winner of the 1,000km Nürburgring. It has a lot of logic, therefore, that Aston Martin wanted pay tribute to the DBR1 by creating a special edition of its most exclusive car and unique: this is the Aston Martin V12 Speedster in their DBR1 specification.
Aston Martin introduced its particular speedster just over a year ago. Original production was to be limited to 99 units, but was later reduced to 88 units. This exclusive two-seater is powered by a 5.2 V12 biturbo engine, which in its case transmits 700 hp to the rear axle, after passing through an automatic change of eight relations. The 0 to 100 km / h is completed in just 3.4 seconds and its top speed is 319 km / h. All this, with the extra morbidity – and sometimes sadomasochism – of lacking both a windshield and a hood.
Aston Martin hopes that these cars will be driven with the same enthusiasm that they have been created.
This unique vehicle has a starting price of 879,000 euros in the United Kingdom, and pricing for the DBR1 specification has yet to be announced. Taking into account the special nature of this version, we would not be surprised to discover a price above one million euros. What does the DBR1 version of the V12 Speedster offer? To begin with, according to the official images, we can see that they share the precious Aston Martin Racing Green paint, a green that has little to do with the traditional British Racing Green, with a darker palette.
The Aston Martin V12 Speedster was born to conquer you with elegance and sportiness (and we are sure it will)
Speedsters are in, barchettas are back and Aston Martin hasn’t …
In addition, it shares with the DBR1 urinal the numbers, painted in Clubsport White. The grille of the modern Speedster has been painted in Satin Silverwhile the wheels – beautiful 21-inch wheels – combine a satin black base with diamond-cut details. Aston Martin claims the car is passed 50 additional hours in the paint shop. Inside, although it has not been revealed in the photos, the seats combine leather in two tones of brown with a technical textile in Viridian Green.
Satin carbon fiber details are applied to the dashboard. A racing touch.
Each V12 Speedster DBR1 will be hand-built in Gaydon, UK and the first deliveries will take place in summer. If I win the Euromillions, I am clear that a unit will end up in the garage of my mansion.
