Aston Martin is yet to build the V12 Speedster for 88 customers, but before that, it wants to know if any of those customers would be interested in a historic DBR1 optional specification that pays homage to a 1959 Le Mans-winning race car.
The 2.9L straight-six-powered DBR1 also recorded victories at the 1,000 km of Nürburgring in 1957, 1958 and 1959. Anyway, the DBR1 specification for V12 Speedster includes Aston Martin Racing Green paint, Clubsport White pinstripe and roundels, and a Satin Silver anodized grille with Clubsport lipstick. Rounding off the exterior looks are satin black diamond turned 21-inch centre lock wheels. The cockpit gets Conker saddle leather, Viridian Green technical textile or Caithness Green leather options, and satin silver brushed aluminium switchgear. The driver and passenger helmets are also finished in Aston Martin Racing Green.
Powering the V12 Speedster is a 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12, producing an estimated 515 kW (700 metric hp) and 753 Nm (555 lb-ft) of torque. A ZF 8-speed automatic transmission drives the rear wheels.
