Aston Martin’s Q division strikes again – not for 007, but a mysterious private client who wanted a very unusual one-off. The bespoke team has crafted a unique coupe called Victor, combining styling reminiscent of the 1970s and 80s with technology more familiar from GT4 today. That all started with a Cosworth-tuned V12 engine.
It’s the same engine that could be found in the One-77, but Victor gets a more powerful upgrade. 836 horsepower and 606 lb-ft of torque are the result, piped through a six-speed manual gearbox. It leaves the coupe the most powerful manual that Aston Martin has made.
Outside, the dramatic styling is meant to call to mind the 70s/80s Vantage. Inside, there’s a mixture of high-end leather, real walnut and cashmere, and exposed carbon fiber. Altogether it’s a coupe like no other, both metaphorically and literally.
