Powered by a 4.7-liter V8 developing 446 horses, most of the changes concerns the reduction of the car and aerodynamics. The bodywork features including a large share of carbon parts while the cabin will feature bucket manual settings and doors against the same material.
Transmission side, Aston Martin announced the possibility for the buyer to opt to choose for a manual gearbox six-speed sequential gearbox or a 7 speed. Of course, the British manufacturer will also offer an outdoor delivered very close to that adopted for the Aston Martin GTE of the Le Mans 24 Hours, damage these always being in “option”.
Performance-wise, the WP8 goes from 0-100 km / h in 4.4 seconds and a top speed of 306 km / h. However, I bet that this racing car will be comfortable on a fast circuit.
Unfortunately I have bad news for you two: the WP8 starts at 165,000 pounds (about $ 300,000) and only 150 units will be produced. So they are probably already sold out, and the cut will not be available in North America.
