The most powerful Aston Martin ever made

Maybe lately the emergence of a new supercar species is rarely heard of, but some time ago Aston Martin through Q, the special modification division of this British manufacturer got a big project from one of the richest consumers in the world. And for that mysterious customer, Q made the world's most powerful one and only Aston Martin. Well. in the hands of this special division, the Aston Martin cars are made more special to suit the special needs of consumers.

Recently, the British company announced that Q has completed a special project which resulted in a new supercar named Aston Martin Victor. As rumors, we've been heard, that Aston Martin is working on the car on the special order of a loyal Aston Martin customer from Belgium. And Victor is not the name of the car owner. Instead, it was taken of the name Victor Gauntlett, and for Aston Martin, he was a special figure who managed to save the British premium brand from bankruptcy.

As mentioned earlier, this car is the most powerful car ever made by Aston Martin. The total power reaches 836 horsepower and the peak engine torque can reach 821 nm. To achieve that much power, Q did not do what Ferrari, Lamborghini, and McLaren did, by installing induction power from other sources such as electric motors. However, they still use the conventional V12 engine.

And this machine has also been embedded in other great Aston Martin cars, such as the Aston Martin One-77. Under the hood of this hypercar lays a V12 engine with a 7.3-liter cylinder capacity without turbo and other power induction. Originally the engine was only capable of producing 750 horsepower and a maximum torque of 722 Nm.

And to achieve an output of 836 horsepower and a maximum torque of 821 Nm, the Q division has made collaboration with another big name company, namely Cosworth, one of the world's great and the most successful car engine suppliers. From this collaboration succeeded in making Aston Martin Victor becoming the most powerful Aston Martin car ever made. Literally, it is the only one because Aston Martin only made one Aston Martin Victor.

Not only special in terms of power, but the car appearance also very interesting so no wonder if it could be made your eyes no-blink for a moment. It has a very unusual design, not like as we've been seen on the various Aston Martin cars used by James Bond in every his actions. The unusual design is even reminiscent of the typical American muscle car design, the Ford Mustang. It is characterized by a strong nose and a muscular stern. In fact, the design imitates the design of the previous Aston Martin car.

To be exact, the Aston Martin Vantage design in the 1970s. At that time, the 1970 Aston Martin Vantage was the first Aston Martin to be called a supercar because of its power which reached 390 horsepower. The maximum speed reaches 270 kilometers per hour. Because the design is reminiscent of the Ford Mustang, at that time the Aston Martin Vantage 1970 was called the British Muscle Car.

Those elements are what the Aston Martin Victor tries to restore. The nose of this car is so big and solid. Likewise, the back is very strong. Even though it looks solid, Aston Martin actually uses carbon fiber in the car. Including the carbon fiber chassis that is already on the Aston Martin One-77.
Now in the interior, Aston Martin Victor actually looks simple. There is no large touch screen like other expensive cars. This car only relies on two touch screens which are quite moderate. It's just that, the technology system has already applied the most advanced technology like in the Aston Martin DBX SUV. However, the interior material is actually a super-premium blend. The ceiling is made of cashmere leather, while the seats to the dashboard are specially made by Q of genuine leather. Walnut wood is also visible on the Aston Martin Victor's six-speed manual transmission lever.

There are indeed several carbon fiber elements in the interior. It's just that the element is not so dominant. Aston Martin Victor is actually rich with a combination of walnut wood elements, titanium, and aluminum. This is what makes the interior of the car feel special, even though it's not crammed with magic buttons. Not because you can't, it could be that the special customer of Aston Martin who ordered the car was prioritizing quality over appearance. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CARMAGAZINE.CO.UK | AUTOCAR.CO.UK | ROBBREPORT.COM]
