Aston Martin Victor is a Frankenstein one-of-a-kind hypercar
Introducing the Aston Martin Victor, the latest model to come out of Q labs – Aston Martin’s bespoke division that takes supercars and somehow makes them even better.
According to Autocar, the Victor was commissioned by a Belgian customer – and so named after Victor Gauntlett, the man credited for reviving Aston Martin back in the 1980s.
The Victor was based on Aston Martin’s already ludicrous One-77 hypercar, but has been reworked to look totally different.
The body is made entirely out of carbon-fibre and used the 1977 V8 Vantage as inspiration. There is a new grille, circular headlamps and a large lower apron.
Around the back you get a massive diffuser, as well as new taillights – two upgrades that appear to have been lifted from Aston Martin’s Valkyrie.
The Victor’s beauty isn’t just skin deep, either. The Victor makes use of a 7.3-litre V12 engine that was produced with help from Cosworth. That gives the Victor 836-horsepower, and 821 Nm of Torque (that makes it more powerful than the One-77s 750 horses).
All that power requires a little bit more technology to keep it right-side up. That’s why the Victor borrows the Vulcan’s springs and dampaners, as well as Brembo’s CMM-R Carbon Ceramic braking system.
The price for this one-off unit? As the saying goes, if you have to ask…
The Aston Martin One-77 currently goes for around US$1.87 million, while the Vulcan will set you back around US$2.3 million. So we expect this one-of-a-kind custom hypercar to cost somewhere in between.
