Aston Martin Victor Is Part One-77, Part Vulcan

Aston Martin’s bespoke division has created an incredible homage to Victor Gauntlett, the man recognized as having saved Aston Martin in the 1980s


  • This is the latest Q Commission car from Aston Martin.

  • It is the most powerful naturally-aspirated Aston Martin ever.

  • The 7.3-litre V12 makes 836 horsepower, thanks to Cosworth.


The Aston Martin Victor is the result of money’s no object, creativity, and access to an incredible reserve of parts. Yes, the Victor is a combination of a One-77 prototype and the fabulous track-only Vulcan. This is a fine way to celebrate the Vantage name’s 70th anniversary.

There are no bad angles on the car. It’s over-the-top and yet so subdued, at the same time. It’s clear that Aston Martin’s bespoke Q Commission division was inspired by the 1980s muscle car ear if mostly because of superbly integrated side-pipes. The car’s aero is functional according to autocar.co.uk, both upfront and in the rear, and it is necessary.

The Victor’s 7.3-litre V12, which developed 750 horsepower, now makes 836 horsepower thanks to Cosworth. Incredibly, the car’s transmission is non-other than a 7-speed manual gearbox! The chassis is derived from the Vulcan where the Victor relies on the same inboard dampers and springs.

The car’s body, painted Pentland Green, started out life as a One-77 prototype and the final result we see here took 18 months of work and is made from lots of carbon fibre. Inside, the cabin is covered in cashmere, titanium, walnut, and other such materials. Give all of this, we can only imagine how much the Belgian collector paid for his latest prized possession.
