Aston Martin will officially unveil their spectacular DBR22 in the flesh at the upcoming 2022 Monterey Car Week. It draws inspiration from Aston's open-cockpit race cars, and is powered by their now-iconic V12.
The creation of the DBR22 design concept is the latest in a long line of extraordinary projects expertly handled by in-house bespoke division, Q by Aston Martin. 2022 marks the tenth anniversary of the sub-division, and past commissions have included cars such as the one-off Aston Martin Victor, and low volume specials such as Vulcan and Vantage V600, limited to 24 and 14 examples respsectively.
It seems only fitting then, that the DBR22 design concept should also form the basis of a production reality example for an ultra-exclusive number of Q by Aston Martin customers.With classic proportions and immaculate, muscular curves, DBR22 unashamedly speaks of tradition – specifically Aston Martin’s lifelong lineage of world-beating two-seater open-cockpit sportscars such as the DBR1 and DB3S - but expresses it with a dynamic new take on this compelling theme.
The car has been built out of a minimal number of body panels to create a more sculpted, muscular presence, for a smooth and effortless blend of exceptional drama and elegance, with several unique design features to compliment. A particularly noteworthy feature is the entirely new front grille which incorporates a unique carbon fibre design in place of the usual veins seen on series production Aston Martins. This design takes inspiration directly from the DBR1 and DB3S, giving a unique identity; one which clearly draws from Aston Martin’s heritage but uses this inspiration to create a truly contemporary design.The DBR22 design concept also showcases an entirely bespoke paint colour, developed specifically for the occasion using ‘Paint to Sample’ – an exclusive option available through Q by Aston Martin, demonstrating again the vast design possibilities attainable through the marques bespoke service.
Under the bonnet, you'd find an immensely potent 5.2-litre V12 Twin-Turbo powertrain to back up its extraordinary looks. Peak outputs of 715PS and 753Nm provide more than sufficient propulsion to accelerate the DBR22 from a standstill to 60mph in just 3.4sec and on to a top speed of 198mph/319kmh. With nothing but the slipstream between the driver and this epic engine’s unforgettable twelve-cylinder howl, the DBR22 promises to be an intense sensory stimulation.The DBR22 design concept will be on display at Pebble Beach Concours D’ Elegance from Friday 19th – Sunday 21st August.
