New Aston Martin DBR22 Speedster (twin-turbocharged V-12)

The DBR22’s design was inspired by the Le Mans-winning DBR1 driven by Roy Salvadori and Carroll Shelby, the only Aston Martin to win the race outright.

Here are the major highlights:

  • The DBR22 is a two-seat, open-cockpit speedster that strongly borrows design cues from the Le Mans-winning DBR1 of the manufacturer.
  • The DBR22 is advertised to hit 60 mph in 3.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 198 mph thanks to its twin-turbo 5.2-liter V-12 engine.
  • Although the DBR22 is now described as a concept, it’s anticipated that around 10 Aston Martin Q customers will be able to purchase a production model.

In addition, it was developed to mark the 10th anniversary of Aston Martin‘s bespoke Q division.

The company also mentions that Q by Aston Martin, it’s custom business, is celebrating its tenth anniversary, a possible clue that this car would be produced in a small batch of just 10 to mark the occasion.

The DBR22’s twin-turbocharged 5.2-liter V-12 produces 705 horsepower and 555 pound-feet of torque, down around ten horsepower from a few other Astons in recent years.

It accelerates from 0-60 mph in 3.4 seconds, decent but not very quick.

Fortunately, you can smile when being gapped by a Tesla Model S Plaid from the stoplight while listening to a screaming V-12 through the open cockpit.

Aston said that the DBR1 and DB3S inspired the design, which substitutes carbon fiber for the grille’s traditional metal weaving.

In addition, the body has a few carbon panels so as not to obstruct the body’s flowing bodywork.

The Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, a part of the Monterey Car Week in California, is where the DBR22 is expected to make its formal debut later this week.

Although earlier models sold in low-double-digit numbers, there are no documented production data for this model.

It would be appropriate if the DBR22 did the same.
