Order Books For Aston Martin V12 Speedster DBR1 Package Are Now Open
The all-new Astron Martin V12 speedster with DBR1 specifications
Aston Martin just announced that the Aston Martin V12 Speedster will now come with DBR1 specifications. All the 88 buyers will have this option. This specification simply aims to pay a tribute to the most successful race car ever produced by the brand.
The all-new Astron Martin V12 speedster features a green hue which is synonymous with Aston Martin racing cars. Along with that, it also features a front grille in a Satin Silver finish. Along with that, the silver wing badging further gives it that classic race car look.
Though, buyers of the Aston Martin V12 Speedster will get the same power specifications either way. So, even with the DBR1 specifications, the V12 Speedster will feature the 5.2-liter twin-turbocharged engine. This engine can send 753 Nm and 515 kW to the car’s rear wheels.
According to the carmaker, the V12 Speedster can go from 0 to 100 km/h within 3.4 seconds. At the same time, it can reach a top speed of 319 km/h, which is indeed very fast. Overall, this model is a big jump from the original.
When we compare these new specifications with the original DBR1 race car, a big change can be seen. In 1958, after the racing rules changed, the DBR1 could achieve a 241 Km/h top speed. It featured a 2922 cc engine that delivered a power of 186 kW to the rear wheels. At the same time, it also had a 5-speed manual transmission. A relatively lesser weight of 800 KG further improved its speed.
Well, this new V12 Speedster has already entered the market and the order books are now open. The first deliveries of the car are expected somewhere around the mid of 2021. Though, the pricing has not been officially announced yet.
Although, speculators say that the DBR1 package would cost some premium over the base price of the standard Aston Martin V12 Speedster that costs AU$1.37 Million.
