Aston Martin Has Unveiled a Luxury Supercar Without a Windshield

Aston Martin has unveiled the stunning V12 Speedster that does not have a roof or windshield but can reach speeds of up to 300 km/h.

Aston Martin has rolled out the stunning V12 Speedster. It was developed by a special division of the company that specializes in the production of “cars for the most demanding customers”. The engineers drew inspiration from the brand's rich racing history. That is why its appearance echoes the DBR1, which won the 1959 24 Hours of Le Mans, and the 2013 CC100 Speedster released in celebration of the company's 100th anniversary. Also, the exclusive sports car traces the features of a fighter aircraft.

The V12 Speedster is built on an all-new aluminum platform that uses parts from the DBS Superleggera and Vantage. The body of the model is made of carbon fiber, which significantly reduces its weight. The barchetta has also received adaptive three-mode shock absorbers, 21-inch wheels with central locks, carbon-ceramic brake calipers and a stainless steel exhaust system.

The passenger cabin is made in the aviation style and is divided into two zones – the driver's and passenger's. The interior is finished with carbon fiber and chrome-plated aluminum, and seats are made of high-end leather. There are also 3D-printed elements inside. Instead of a conventional glove compartment, Aston Martin uses a removable leather bag.

The V12 Speedster is powered by a 5.2-liter V12 turbo engine with 700 hp and 752 Nm. A 0-100 km/h time is 3.5 seconds. A top speed of the model is limited at 300 km/h. These specifications and outstanding look allow the Aston Martin V12 Speedster to compete with the McLaren Elva and Ferrari Monza.

Only 88 limited edition speedsters will be released, each of which will cost £765,000. The first deliveries are scheduled for early 2021.
