Danish automotive engineering and designing company Hermann, Brandt and Hartvig (HBH) has announced it is going to build a supercar based on the Aston Martin V12 Vantage. The company has also released an early teaser image of the car.
For those of you who aren't familiar with HBH's work, the company is responsible for the insane and incredibly quick Zenvo ST1 hypercar. The Zenvo was generally regarded as the first completely Danish supercar to have been built. It featured a 1104hp (824kW) 7.0-litre V8 producing a whopping 1430Nm of torque. Top speed was limited to 375km/h, while 0-100km/h acceleration could be dealt with in just 3.0 seconds.
We're expecting the new HBH Aston to be one hell of a car. The company hasn't released too many specific details on the car yet, only that it will be mid-engined and feature a twin-supercharged version of the Aston Martin 6.0-litre V12 engine. Power of the standard unit is rated at 380kW, after HBH is finished with it, it's expected to produce upwards of 450kW.
The HBH Aston Martin V12 will be produced as a one-off model, and the lucky buyer who purchases it will also take 50 percent stake in the design and development rights to the car. This provides reassurance to the owner that it will remain as one exclusive package, unless the owner and HBH decide to build another. Pricing is yet to be announced.
We'll be sure to provide full details, including specifications on the one-off creation as soon as possible.
