It’s no secret we here at ESM love the Aston Martin marque.
Sure, it’s a little slower than other super/hypercars. Sure, the technology has been relatively ancient for cars pre-dating the DB11. Sure, some of the cars may have niggles forcing one to make sure he or she has an extended warranty before purchasing a used Aston.
But, fuck – they are pretty.
Add to the beauty a little provenance linked to James Bond and then you have a undeniable, er, bond with the cars Aston Martin produces.
Having had two Aston Martin V8 Vantage project cars we know all too well the looks we used to get when we drove the cars around.
Hell, we felt like James-mutherfucking-Bond himself whenever we were in the car.
So it’s no surprise our heart skippity-skipped a beat when we laid our eyes on this beautiful widebody Aston Martin V8 Vantage with Vossen Wheels by the folks at ACR Performance.
According to an article on SpeedHunters.com:
Predominately focused on sourcing and selling secondhand classics as well as modern Astons, Tokyo-based Alpha Classics came to the realization that it was the perfect time to launch a bespoke brand that caters to those that want their Aston Martins to stand out a little bit more.
A lot of the inspiration has come from Aston Martin’s V12 Vantage GT3 of which Alpha Classics has had a bit to do with through its own racing programme in Japan.
Truth be told, our heart hurts whenever we see pictures of this car. Almost makes us regret switching up to the AMG GTS for like… 5 minutes.
In any case, we have no idea how much these body mods cost, but if we were to imagine, they’ll be up there in price because there aren’t a ton of V8 Vantage owners out there to help them create volume pricing.
But if we could, we’d find a V12 Vantage convertible and do the ACR Performance treatment in a heartbeat.
