Behold: the Aston Martin V12 Speedster – a breezy call-back to the open-cockpit (you’ll be wearing a racing helmet) prototype race cars of the 50s and 60s.

Designed from scratch in a year by Aston Martin’s Q division and completely unchanged from the initial concept, the car is currently undergoing road-testing. The twin-turbo 700bhp racer wears a swooping carbon fibre shell on a bonded aluminium chassis with roadholding assisted by adaptive dampers and massive carbon brakes.

Only 88 will be made and they may all be sold already so you can put away that €841,000 in used twenties.
