Aston Martin teases V12 Speedster

The lightweight two-seater will boast 690 horsepower.

Aston Martin has teased the V12 Speedster, a lightweight two-seater with an open cockpit.

Taking inspiration from the company's 1959 Le Mans-winning DBR1 and CC100 Speedster centenary concept, the production-bound Speedster is motivated by a high-output 5.2-liter V12 with 690 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque.

The specifications fall short of the Ferrari Monza SP2, which delivers 789 horsepower from the Prancing Horse's most powerful V12 ever. The two-seat SP2 can launch from zero to 62 mph in just 2.9 seconds.

Aston Martin has allocated just 88 examples of the V12 Speedster for production, with the hand-built roadsters slated for delivery in the first quarter of 2021. The car will receive a full debut later this year.
