What you see here is the Aston Martin Super Sport. It isn’t really an Aston Martin, but more of an Aston Martin inspired coachbuild project by Star Electric Cars France. It looks very mildly Aston-like, sharing only a similar front-end design with the Gaydon-based company.
Star Electric Cars France are known for designing special cars for presidents, kings and princes, and are licensed to recreate electric golf carts resembling cars from Rolls Royce, Bentley, Mercedes and Aston Martin.
Details are sketchy for the moment but the car is said to house a 5.4 litre V8 engine producing anywhere from 800 to 950hp, quite different from the company’s usual customised electric golf carts. The engine is mated to a six speed manual transmission with optional F1 paddle shifters. It also has a limited slip differential.
Only available in left hand drive (not very Aston like – the British drive on the right), the car uses a carbon fibre bodywork with scissor doors, while employing other light weight components like Brembo or AP carbon ceramic brakes. The interior sees the use of leather, Alcantara, carbon fibre and Recaro seats while a sat nav is also included with iPod connectivity.
Only eight of these special edition cars will be available and each will come at a price of 7,500,000 Euros per unit. Look after the jump for more pictures of the Aston Martin inspired supercar.
