Exclusive: Aston Martin Hypercar To Be Unveiled This Summer


And that's not all we know.

A longtime CarBuzz reader who has placed an order for Aston Martin’s upcoming hypercar has told us the car will be unveiled this summer. The exact date is currently under wraps, but Aston Martin did confirm a reveal will take place in the summer. However the British carmaker refused to confirm other details we learned about the car. According to the prospective client, a select few individuals have been shown early sketches and a clay model of the car, and that all 99 units have been sold for a reported £2.2 million/$3.2 million (including tax) a pop.

The “ultimate fusion of art and technology” will be much sought after, which is why Aston Martin will release a follow up limited-edition model a year or two after the hypercar debuts in 2018. Details on the powertrain remain confidential, but in making “the ultimate hypercar,” Aston Martin aims to marry a high-revving, high horsepower powerplant to a body smaller in size to the McLaren P1 with cutting edge aerodynamics learned from F1 and a small cockpit. Weighing in at less than 1,000 kg, the Adrian Newey-Marek Reichman creation will have a better power-to-weight ratio than the Koenisegg One:1.

Performance will be like nothing ever seen on a road car with Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer claiming it will lap a circuit just as quick as an F1 or LMPI racer. Our rendering artist has taken the DP-100 Vision Gran Turismo concept that was unveiled a couple of years ago and added some unique styling elements. More importantly, the image that Aston unveiled upon announcing the hypercar – presumably of the lit up smoke lines created in a wind tunnel – now fits perfectly over the car. However, the final car is certain to have a few styling surprises and we can’t wait to see it in the metal.
