[YesAuto Wonderful Car Life] According to foreign media reports, Aston Martin is currently developing a two-door, two-seater luxury sports car inspired by the classic Aston Martin DBR-1 in the 1950s. . According to foreign media sources, at the private event of the Pebble Beach Classic Auto Show held last month, some Aston Martin customers have already witnessed the car's style in advance.
Aston Martin DBR-1 is Aston Martin’s first car specially built for competitions. According to relevant regulations, all previous racing cars need to be restructured on the basis of civilian cars. DBR-1 had a big victory in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1959, which also doubled its value. At the 2017 Monterrey Sotheby's auction, the DBR-1/1, number 1, sold for a sky-high price of US$22.55 million, making it the most expensive British brand classic car in history.
If Aston Martin’s new car follows the design inspiration of DBR-1, it may design a separate headrest behind the driver’s head and retain the classic streamlined lines and prominent wheel arches. It is said that the output of this car is limited to 88 units. In terms of power, it will be equipped with Aston Martin's top engine configuration-the 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 engine of DBS Superleggera, which can output a maximum power of 725 horsepower and a peak of 898 Nm Torque. Since Ferrari launched the Monza SP1 and SP2 at the end of last year, there has been a wave of luxury sports cars on the rim. McLaren also recently announced that the next model of the Ultimate Series will be a super sports car, or will be equipped with the same power system as the Senna.
Including the name, many details about this car have not yet been disclosed, but its price is expected to be in the millions. If the car was indeed secretly exhibited at Pebble Beach, it may follow in the footsteps of Aston Martin’s top sports car Valkyrie and be released next year. (Guo Song, Home of Wen Auto)
