The Aston Martin The Victor, a privately owned car that I only found out about from my British friends on social media, may be the best vehicle to come out in 2020. I mean, come on: weird multi-era styling, cashmere headliner, even 12. .. manual broadcast ?!
The more I watch it, the more ironic it becomes. I love it. I mean, me Literally Is lovely. It’s different with great pleasure!
Some British publications and viewers saw Victor in person this week Beautiful ceremony at Hampton Court Palace (Where people don’t seem to be overly concerned about the coronavirus based on social media photos.) But a spokesman for Aston Martin told me there were no plans to issue an official press release about Victor because the owner “wants to keep the car low”
Obviously not Also The low key or the car wouldn’t be the wheel at a show, but I have to admit that it’s a lot more fun to be surprised than to spend weeks playing teaser photos.
I guess AM wasn’t too worried about hyping anything like this, if it’s actually just making one, I guess it’s sold out! I asked what the secret client paid for the honor of being the only person to own Aston’s most powerful manual-shift supercar, but the people of the company surprisingly refused to take part.
Anyway, whoever spent a mint on this magnificent monster bought more than the bragging rights. The car is unique, which is difficult to pull all the time. A document sent to me by an Aston representative described Victor as “inspired by the 70’s and 80’s Aston Martin V8 Vantage”. More specifically: “… 1970’s Aston Martin V8 Vantage and ’80s and’ 70s DBS V8 developed for 24-man Le Mans in 24 Hours as Reham / 1 Was done. “
Here’s what they’re talking about:
Yeah Al that sounds pretty crap to me, Looks like BT aint for me either. ” 70s and ’80s’ vibrations can be used to describe a single car. Designed in the 70s, modified in the 80s.
This beauty is great in the way this beauty has been completely redesigned, and the oil bits (British allowed when discussing a custom Aston Martin) are never taken out of the good parts. Is:
- The 836 brake horsepower and 599 lb-ft of torque claimed by Kusworth are naturally expected from the One-77 to the 7.3-liter V12.
- The six-speed manual transmission by Graziono (Excel Authority Dana’s UK division) will probably cost more than I have spent on car maintenance so far in my life.
- 380 mm front, 360 mm rear Brambo CMM-R carbon ceramic brakes.
- Track-only inboard springs and dampers from Aston Martin Vulcan.
- The team worked to bring the Velcary Hypercar to life.
- Finished in “Pentland Green” and sine carbon fiber, a forest green interior with shiny leather fabric sealed by Kankar Bridge Veer using headliners and cashmere. Also: solid walnut (!) Dashboard is cracked, whatever that means, and Wood shift g. Matches.
I’m not usually excited about the ultra-elite supercars I’ll never see in the skin but I have to say, this thing just looks fantastic. The design borderline is ironic, but I dig it. And the high-performance / luxury skirmishes went really well. At least, based on what we can see in these photos.
Will the world see this car again or not? If we do not do this, I will dump the entire stack of official photos I received. Take your time with them, a lot is happening.
