The Aston Martin V12 Speedster Will Be Built

The seductive Aston Martin V12 Speedster will be rare, expensive and very fast.

  • Inspired by the 2013 CC100 Concept unveiled for AM’s 100th birthday.
  • The CC100 was itself inspired by the legendary Aston Martin DBR1 from the late ’50s.
  • Only 88 will be sold and will be priced from at least £750,000.

We’ve said it before but these are great times to be a rich car enthusiast. New supercars, hyper-cars and everything in between are being launched every other day and one of the latest will certainly not be the least seductive. The Aston Martin V12 Speedster is officially confirmed for production, albeit for a very limited  time.

Bac in 2013, Aston Martin introduced a gift it served itself for its 100th anniversary. The Centenary CC100 Speedster Concept made its debut at the 24 hours of the Nurburgring of the same year. The open-top Speedster Concept was a throwback to the legendary Aston Martin DBR1 race car from 1959 which won both the World Sports Car Championship and Le Mans 24 Hours in the same year.

The production version of the Aston Martin V12 Speedster will retail for, at the very least, £750,000, and deliveries are expected to begin in early 2021. The V12 Speedster will be powered by a 700 PS and 700 Nm of torque (690-horsepower and 516 lb.-ft. of torque) twin-turbocharged 5.2-litre V12 engine. It will be mated to an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission mounted on the rear axle.

If you’re into two-seater open cockpit supercars, you’ve been served as let’s not forget, McLaren recently introduced the gorgeous Elva.
