A Car You’ll Never Own
Aston Martin, Automobiles, The Right Stuff
Jalopnik reports: Some unidentified gazillionaire ordered himself a special custom one-of-a-kind automobile from Aston Martin. It’s a V-12 with a manual transmission. Right on!
Naturally aspirated 7.3-liter V12 from the One-77, tuned by Cosworth to a claimed 836 brake horsepower and 599 lb-ft of torque.
Six-speed manual transmission made by Graziano (The UK division of axle authority Dana) with a â€œbespoke motorsports clutchâ€ that would probably cost more to replace than Iâ€™ve spent on car maintenance in my life so far.
380mm front, 360mm rear Brembo CMM-R carbon ceramic brakes.
Inboard springs and dampers from the track-only Aston Martin Vulcan.
Worked on by the team bringing the Valkyrie hypercar to life.
Finished in â€œPentland Greenâ€ and satin carbon fiber with a Forest Green interior sewn by fancy leather outfit Conker Bridge of Weir which used cashmere on the headliner.
Also: The solid walnut(!) dashboard is Crown cut, whatever that means, and matches the wood shift knob.
Special bespoke clutch ?!
Cashmere headliner ?!
