Aston Martin has officially unveiled the V12 Speedster, a fighter jet-inspired supercar which is almost entirely made up of engine.

In an incredible feat, the British manufacturer fit its biggest engine into its smallest car yet. The little racer is equipped with a  5.2-liter twin-turbo V12 that puts out 700hp and 752Nm of torque. This combines with rear-wheel-drive handling that’s supported by a ZF eight-speed automatic transmission to propel the car from 0 to 60 MPH in 3.5 seconds, reaching a top speed of 186 MPH.

Developed by Aston Martin’s bespoke Q branch in collaboration with Boeing, the car's design is inspired by aeronautical design, and strikingly resembles a fighter jet. The Speedster comes without a windscreen or a roof. The passenger compartment is completely exposed and divided by a massive crossbar between the driver and passenger, resembling a fighter jet cabin.

Futuristic materials like structural satin carbon fiber and 3D-printed rubber are used alongside saddle leather, chrome and aluminum. The car is finished in Skyfall Silver, with contrasting satin black on the exhaust tips, vent grilles and vanes.

The Aston Martin V12 Speedster is limited to just 88 units worldwide and priced at a steep $950,000. Deliveries are set for 2021, you can register for the supercar via Aston Martin's website.
