Aston Martin has made a one-off hypercar based on its greatest hits; the One-77, Vulcan and Valkyrie. Meet Aston Martin Victor, commissioned by a Belgian collector and built by Aston Martin’s Q division.
The Victor started out its life as a One-77 and it took Aston Martin 18 months to create the final car.
It has a carbon-fibre body with fully functional aero-package that allows it to have more downforce than a Vantage GT4 race car at 100mph, finished in a shade called the ‘Pentland Green’.
It has a refurbished carbon monocoque chassis and a naturally aspirated 7.3-litre V12 engine from the One-77 and tail lights inspired by those on the Valkyrie.
In the One-77, launched more than a decade ago, the engine produced 750 bhp (559kW) but before putting it in the Victor the engine output was increased by 11 percent, making 836 bhp (623kW) and 821 Nm of torque.
Its suspensions and dampers are from the track-only monster, the Vulcan and it has huge Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes. The best part? It has centre-lock wheels.
The cockpit is trimmed with green leather, cashmere, walnut, aluminium, titanium and carbon fibre. It has inherited DBX’s infotainment system and air vents.
Oh, have I not mentioned it already? It’s rear-wheels are driven by a six-speed manual gearbox.
No official pricing has been released but it probably was not cheap at all but it was totally worth it. Congratulations to its lucky owner.
