Aston Martin car with carbon fiber bodywork

Aston Martin has developed a bespoke two-seater open car that it says has a bodywork completely made of carbon fiber composite.

This includes the front grille, body panels, bonnet, mirror arms and seats.

The DBR22 also features a 5.2-litre V12 Twin-Turbo powertrain engine that can go from zero to 60mph in 3.4 seconds with a top speed of 198 mph, and a 3D printed aluminum rear subframe.

“Technology is pivotal in the construction of DBR22, with extensive use of carbon fibre throughout, and the use of 3D printing for the manufacture of a structural component,” said Roberto Fedeli, Aston Martin CTO.

“We set our design systems to “hyper-drive”, pushing the exploration of formalism further and endeavouring to express a future in the here today,” said Marek Reichman, Aston Martin chief creative officer. “Where could we go with the surfaces, proportion and form.”
