To get an allocation for one of these, you had to be among the respective brand’s top clients. However, there are quite a few of these in the market these days. @amcarsfrance has just listed a V12 Speedster for sale at an undisclosed price.
Aston Martin built just 88 units of the V12 Speedster. At the time, it was offered at a base price of $950,000. Today, these cars cost well over $1 million.
V12 Speedster’s styling is inspired by the 1953 DB3S and 1959 DBR1. It has a large grille up front and louvres on the fenders. At the rear, the tail lights form an integrated spoiler. The Speedster rides on forged 21-inch centre-lock wheels.
Under the hood is a 5.2-liter, twin-turbo V12 engine that delivers 700 hp and 555 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission, which drives the rear wheels via a limited-slip differential. The V12 Speedster is said to hit 62 mph in 3.5 seconds and has a top speed of 186 mph.
