Aston Martin 800bhp Design Prototype – Available this month

Aston Martin showed of this 800bhp, twin-turbo V12 beast at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
The DP-100 (stands for Design Prototype) is going to be available this month, but unfortunately only virtually. It was designed for Gran Turismo 6.
Regardless it could give us some hints in what direction the luxury automaker is going and we certainly like it.
The founder of Gran Turismo, Kazunori Yamauchi, agrees: “Aston Martin is a brand that has a very long history and legacy, so when I presented them with the Vision Gran Turismo project I was curious to see what they would conjure up.
“It made me happy that they selected a mid-engined layout for the car to begin with, because I think for Aston Martin it was a big challenge. But the car itself is very Aston Martin, it is very clean and very premium. And the design language that was used for the car really hints at a new era for Aston Martin.”
