The design team and design engineers worked for six months to create the new addition to the Vision Gran Turismo stable of race cars. Clearly pushing the boundaries of what an Aston Martin could be, DP-100 not only looks beautiful but also boasts a high degree of engineering integrity. It is suggested that the car is powered by a mid-engind twin-turbo V12, with up to 800 bhp, endowing it with blistering performance; this also suggests a potential future engine for road car use.
As with the 2013 CC100 Speedster Concept, many of the design cues visible in DP-100, such as the light blade rear lamps, could also feed through into future sports cars that Aston Martin will launch in the future so the importance of this project should not be underestimated.
Although only existing in the virtual world and as a finished full sized rolling model, the DP-100 would, if real, be only the second Aston Martin to be shown with this configuration, the other example being the Bulldog, built in 1980.
