Overview: The Aston Martin DP-100 vision Gran Turismo concept is a mid-engined vehicle, a first for the company. The engine is a twin-turbocharged V12 producing a theoretical – but also plausible – 800 horsepower. The concept employs active aerodynamics to increase performance and downforce for improved handling. Highlights of the design include vented wheel arches for better airflow, ‘swan wing’ opening doors, active blades on each wheel which automatically open to cool the brakes or close to decrease drag, and the ‘bladed’ rear LED lights.
