Specialists began the restoration of a single copy of the Aston Martin Bulldog.

The British from Classic Motor Cars will be engaged in the restoration of the unique Aston Martin Bulldog concept. It was expected that the concept could accelerate to 322 km / h, but he could not reach this speed. The current owner of the car decided to make another attempt to disperse after 40 years.

The Aston Martin Bulldog concept was launched in 1979. The company was determined to demonstrate the development of technology in the construction of record cars. It was expected that the coupe will be the fastest production model of its time. It was planned to assemble 15-25 cars, but due to the high cost of production, only one Bulldog saw the light.

Under the hood of the car is a 5.3-liter V8 engine. The power plant is 608 hp and 678 Nm of torque. It is worth noting that during testing, Aston Martin Bulldog was able to demonstrate a return of 710 hp.

Unfortunately, the car could not accelerate to 322 km / h. In 1979, a maximum speed of 307 km / h was recorded at the MIRA training ground. The current owner of Aston Martin Bulldog intends to return the car to its factory condition and try again.

It will take about 1.5 years to restore the car. The restoration will be carried out by the Classic Motor Cars team. Experts note that difficulties may be associated with the search for missing spare parts.
