Aston Martin DBR22
Rising from behind the seats are twin nacelles which sculpt the airflow behind the driver and passenger’s heads. At the rear, DBR22 has an unmistakable horizontal light graphic courtesy of the slim, full-width light bar made specially for this concept. Beneath it sits a perforated panel designed to expertly exhale hot air from the tail. This strikingly sculptural piece is yet another in the line up of unique highlights of the DBR22 design. Together with the smoothly integrated diffuser and pair of vast exhaust tailpipes, DBR22 is unmissable in presence, perfectly capturing the raw emotion of the driving experience.
Dynamically DBR22 targets true driver connection, with a chassis honed to deliver precision, agility and tactility in equal measure. With an immensely potent 5.2-litre V12 Twin-Turbo powertrain the DBR22 matches its extraordinary looks with truly breath-taking performance; peak outputs of 715PS and 753Nm providing 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, DBR22 promises to be an intense sensory symphony.
Marek Reichman, Aston Martin Chief Creative Officer, said: “We set our design systems to “hyper-drive”, pushing the exploration of formalism further and endeavouring to express a future in the here today. Where could we go with the surfaces, proportion and form. Combining this approach with advanced process, technology, and materials, we’ve effectively modernised our racing bloodline and created a new pedigree. DBR22 is a hot-blooded, purebred Aston Martin sports car full of speed, agility and spirit, and a machine that we think will be the basis of many of tomorrow’s icons”.
