One-Off Aston Martin Bulldog Concept Stuns In London

We get to see the gullwing doors open and the hood lower, revealing the Bulldog’s five centrally-mounted headlights. With Victor Gauntlett’s son Richard Gauntlett overseeing the project, the Bulldog is being fully restored by Classic Motor Cars. While the stunning exterior is complete, work is still being done on the engine, which we get to hear start up. Originally, the Aston Martin Bulldog was powered by a mid-mounted twin-turbo 5.3-liter engine generating 600 horsepower and 500 lb-ft of torque, but the aim is to boost the output to 650 hp in the restored car.Once the restoration is complete, Aston Martin racing driver Darren Turner will attempt to reach 200 mph in the Bulldog more than 40 years after the first failed attempt. We’re keeping our fingers crossed it will finally achieve its original goal.
