Teaser: HBH Sketch Out Aston Martin V12 Vantage Project

Design

Danish designers at HBH sketch out their planned mid-engine Aston Martin Vantage V12. If all goes to plan, customers can begin placing their orders sometime next year.

In a somewhat unusual move, the Danes are building a mid-engine supercar based on the Aston Martin V12 Vantage. The car uses the same 6.0-liter V12 engine that produces a blistering output of 510hp, but the Danish team will be increasing the performance to a "comfortable" 700hp by adding twin superchargers that will boost the overall output. The Aston Martin V12 Vantage can go from 0-60 mph in 4.1 seconds and achieves a top speed of 190 mph.

Torben Hartvig, one of the designers of HGH, said that they want to "create a car that has the Le Mans racing pedigree but at the same time, from a styling viewpoint, is in complete harmony with Aston Martin's design heritage." The firm is based in Vedbaek, Denmark. HGH stands for Hermann, Brandt and Hartvig. The trio of designers provides engineering, construction, and of course, design development. The design features sketches heavily inspired by the One-77, which can be seen in the taillights. There will be plenty of venting around the bumper and sides.

As of now, the proposed supercar does not have a name. Naturally, the supercar will be limited in production and HBH can start taking your orders sometime next year. No official pricing has been announced.
