A one-off Aston Martin GT12 Roadster commissioned by a customer has been unveiled at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
The new open-top model is based on the GT12 Coupe, so has a 592bhp 5.9-litre V12 engine, but it has also received significant changes to its chassis and aerodynamics.
Aston design chief Marek Reichman said the model came about from discussions from a customer looking to buy a GT12 coupe, but then developed into a bespoke one-off creation.
The unnamed customer is one of Aston's best, as well as being a serial supercar buyer.
The model will remain a one-off, because the customer has paid a premium for the exclusivity.
The GT12 Roadster is also intended to showcase what Aston hopes will be a growing and potentially lucrative part of its business in the future, the ability to make one-off models.
Reichman said: "One-offs is an area we're looking to develop. We're lucky the customer said yes in allowing us to show it, because it will generate more interest in the service we have. Customers know the ability of the base products and this allows them something really special and collectable. Part of the unique nature is that it's already worth more than they paid due to its collectability.
