Aston Martin has revealed a limited edition of the upcoming V12 Speedster. The Aston Martin V12 Speedster pays tribute to the 1959 DBR1 that won the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Just 88 examples of the Aston Martin V12 Speedster will be built by this British car maker, and customers, looking for an especially eye-catching version, will now be able to order the DBR1 model. The DBR1 specification includes Aston Martin Racing Green paint and Clubsport White roundels on the V12 Speedster. Satin Silver is the polish on the grille. The sports car is outfitted with 21-inch center-lock wheels in satin black with a machined face.
Aston Martin has also changed the interior of the DBR1 specification, adding carbon fiber accents, Caithness Green leather, and satin silver brushed aluminum switch-gear. Buyers who choose the DBR1 specification will get Aston Martin Racing Green driver and passenger helmets, which will complement the vehicle's body when driving.
A 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 engine with 690 horsepower and 753 Nm of torque provides power. It drives the rear wheels using an 8-speed automatic transmission with a limited-slip differential to ensure traction. The V12 Speedster will accelerate from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in 3.4 seconds. The maximum speed is 319 kilometers per hour.
The V12 Speedster will be built in limited numbers of 88, with a starting price of $950,000. The automaker does not say whether choosing the DBR1 specification influences the final price.
