Its name is Victor: it is the most powerful supercar, equipped with a manual gearbox, ever made by Aston Martin. This supercar, whose selling price is still unknown, has been manufactured by the British car company’s Q division, which is the one that oversees special vehicles production. What about interiors? They are made from leather, of course, supplied by Scottish Bridge of Weir.
The most powerful supercar
According to ANSA, the name chosen by Aston Martin is a tribute to Victor Gauntlett, an oil industry tycoon who had been co-owner of the car team since 1981. According to other sources, instead, such as GT Sprint, the name given to the supercar recalls a bomber produced by Handley Page and designed to carry the British nuclear deterrent. The Victor car draws styling cues from the iconic V8 Vantage, which was so popular in the seventies and eighties. It is powered by a 7.3 litre V12 engine, further boosted by Cosworth to produce and unleash 836 horsepower and 821 Nm of torque.
Most astoundingly, the extremely powerful engine of this supercar is driven by a 6-speed manual gearbox. This makes the car the most powerful manual-transmission Aston Martin ever created. As regards the supercar interiors, they are made from leather of course. It could not be otherwise. Supplied by Bridge of Weir, selected leather is Forest Green and Conker, matched with cashmere, used for a few particulars. They have also chosen, for the car interiors, other materials, including walnut, carbon fibre, aluminium and titanium. How about the price? It is still quite a mystery: for the time being, we have no information about it.
