    [One-off] Aston Martin Victor (836HP, NA, manual gearbox)

    The Aston Martin Victor is an 836bhp manual masterpiece
















    A retro one-off special that unites One-77, Vulcan and Valkyrie tech.


    V12 NA, 836hp, 822Nm


    six-speed manual gearbox


    bespoke motorsport clutch


    Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes and racecar-esque centre-lock wheels at the end of them.


    it produces more downforce at 100mph than Aston’s current GT4 racecar.


    And the name? Following Vulcan and Valkyrie, you might presume it’s an aeronautical reference. We’re told it’s a nod to Victor Gauntlett, though, boss of Aston Martin when it launched the V8 Vantage its aesthetics have unsubtly taken inspiration from.

    Now the Mustang had sex with an Martin. Strangely the rear looks like an older Corvette?! 🤦🏻‍♂️

    Wild proportions... it does remind me of the below model from Aston Martin´s history:

    Indeed... indecision


    Re: [One-off] Aston Martin Victor (836HP, NA, manual gearbox)

    This is the design language Aston needs for its mass market cars.

    CGX car nut:

    This is the design language Aston needs for its mass market cars. 

    Agreed. the only thing this car needs is a proper steering wheel. 

    Gorgeous. A South London gangster in a Huntsman suit, exactly like every proper Aston should be.

    Not like Aston is flush with cash, they will do one offs after one offs if someone write a big enough cheque.

    Re: [One-off] Aston Martin Victor (836HP, NA, manual gearbox)

    Not easy to pull off such modern retro designs, but I got to say in this case, mission accomplished, too bad its just a one off and wont see this design in other models from the brand.

    If they would produce just such cars they would have no financial issues.....


    Re: [One-off] Aston Martin Victor (836HP, NA, manual gearbox)

    I like it a lot . blush  I was found of the AM of the late 70's early 80's . This one follows that spirit .

    Re: [One-off] Aston Martin Victor (836HP, NA, manual gearbox)

    I am really on the fence about this. On the one hand I love it, on the other hand, it looks a bit tacked on from certain angles, and it moves away from the looks that I have liked so much in, for example the DBS. However, AM was moving in a design direction with the DB11 that I don't really like anyway, so hopefully this one off provides them with some design strategy for future models.

    Very surprised about the positive comments about this. I thought it looked even worse in person than in the photos  - I was at the show for a couple of hours on Friday.
