Aston Martin DBC Concept: The British Supercar We’ve Been Longing For

Aston Martin‘s portfolio of vehicles has and probably always will be about class, sophistication and luxury. An engine in the front, drive in the rear, and an interior stocked top to bottom with high-quality materials. Thus, an in-your-face, mid-engine supercar may very well leave Aston Martin engineers scoffing at the notion.

But why shouldn’t Aston build a bonafide mid-engine halo car to compete with the likes of McLarenFerrari, and a few others? Especially when it looks as dapper as this.

From the mind of designer Samir Sadikhov (the same artist responsible for the Ferrari Xezri), the DBC concept comes with a signature set of Aston Martin lines, albeit with a few minor modifications. The front end gets a sleek new makeover, the back end follows suit, and the whole thing is pulled together seamlessly on a frame that sits what seems like centimeters off the ground.

As with most design studies, Samir didn’t conceptualize a drivetrain, but we wouldn’t expect anything less than to see a beautiful Aston Martin V12 mounted right in the center, putting out somewhere in the market of 800 horsepower (…hey, we can speculate).

Aston, take notice– your One-77 has been replaced.
