That V12 produces 700 horsepower and 555 pound-feet of torque and will propel the Speedster to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds.

The design was influenced by some classic Aston race cars as well as the F/A-18 Hornet fighter jet.

The cockpit is bisected by this spine that runs down the center. Oh, yeah, and there's no windshield.

Almost the entire interior is made from carbon fiber, with elements like the seat padding and armrests getting coverings in leather and fabric textiles.

Everything on the inside has been pared down to a minimum, and the glove box has even been replaced by a leather pouch.
