Aston Martin’s Q Commission has unveiled the one-of-a-kind Aston Martin Victor hypercar.

Built for a collector from Belgium, the car has acquired the most productive naturally-aspirated engine in the history of the British brand, reports Autocar on Friday, September 4.

The front-engined coupe is powered by a 7.3-liter engine from the One-77 supercar. The engine upgraded by Cosworth specialists instead of 760 produces 840 hp. and works in conjunction with a 7-speed manual transmission.

Victor is built on the basis of Aston Martin One-77 – one of the debut concepts, and it took a year and a half to build. The chassis of the novelty uses components from carbon plastic, springs and shock absorbers from the track Vulkan, and in the exterior you can see some details from the Valkyrie hypercar and the DBX cross.

The aerodynamic parts of the coupé deliver downforce comparable to that of the track Vantage GT4, while the Brembo carbon ceramic brakes perform as efficiently as the GT3. At the same time Victor is fully certified for normal roads.

The supercar was named after Victor Gauntlett, who did much to revive the Aston Martin brand in the 1980s. Neither the cost of the project, nor the name of the customer were disclosed.

In addition, it was recently noted that the British automaker Aston Martin showed a miniature copy of its own iconic DB5 model, which received the Junior prefix. The car is well detailed and has an electric motor.
