The Aston Martin Victor is a one-off custom body supercar based on the Aston Martin One-77.
The Aston Martin Victor is a one-off road-legal custom body supercar built by Q by Aston Martin, Aston Martin Lagonda's in-house personalisation division. It is named after Victor Gauntlett, the executive chairman of Aston Martin during the 1980s, widely credited for his efforts in dragging the automobile manufacturer out of perpetual financial trouble during his tenure.
The Aston Martin Victor's carbon bodywork is based on the One-77, incorporating round front headlights and overall styling cues reminiscent of the 1977 V8 Vantage, side exhausts, bumpers, and suspension from the track day Vulcan, LED tail lights inspired by the Valkyrie hypercar, and a development programme that uses computer fluid dynamic testing, resulting in the Victor producing more downforce at 100 mph than the 2008 Vantage GT4 race car despite weighing less than the One-77. The Victor is painted mainly in Pentland Green, a darker shade of green based on the green-on-tan coloration associated with classic British automobile racing. However, many of its lower body elements are satin-tinted carbon fiber.
The 7.3-liter V12 engine that powers the Aston Martin Victor is similar to the one found in the One-77, but has been further tuned by Cosworth for increased performance, producing 836 bhp (86 more than the One-77) and 606 lb⋅ft of torque (53 more than the One-77). Central to the Victor's drivetrain is its 6-speed manual gearbox, which makes it the most powerful Aston Martin car ever made with manual transmission. The Victor's four Brembo CMM-R carbon ceramic disc brakes give it a stopping power similar to GT3 race cars.
Because of its highly exclusive and one-off nature, there are no official performance figures for the Aston Martin Victor and its cost price is unknown. However, as the Victor is based on the One-77, its performance and cost is believed to be similar to the latter in many respects.
The Aston Martin Victor was added in the European Season Update as a mid Class A car with the following rank statistics:
- Stock rank: 2,950 ( 70)
- rank: 3,118
- rank: 3,323 ( 23)
- rank: 3,512 ( 27)
- rank: ? ( 36)
- rank: ? ( 52)
- rank: 4,255 ( 59)
At its stock rank, the Aston Martin Victor has a top speed rating of exactly 360—identical to the Peugeot Onyx—a relatively high acceleration stat (70.30), and average handling and nitro stats (54.85 and 47.57 respectively). In practice, the Victor takes a considerable amount of time to accelerate to its full speed, but it is able to go around bends and corners while still retaining much of its speed. It also has a decent drift radius.
The Aston Martin Victor's upgrades give the greatest increases to both handling and nitro, while providing the least improvements to top speed. Even with extensive upgrades, the Victor's acceleration still remains somewhat sluggish, although this is partially countered by its improved handling and nitro efficiency. With all upgrades, the Victor's top speed rating of 371.4 is higher than many other Class B and A cars, with notable exceptions being the Apollo N, McLaren 570S Spider, McLaren F1 LM, and Aston Martin Valhalla.
The Aston Martin Victor is required to complete a goal in Career Mode's European Season. Due to its high speed, good handling, and high nitro efficiency, the Victor is also useful in World Series multiplayer once it is available in Platinum League; this is especially so if it has been upgraded.
Up to 7 blueprints for the Aston Martin Victor could be obtained with the Free Pass during European Season upon completing the season goals in each episode. However, the primary method of obtaining blueprints for the Victor was through purchase of the Legend Pass during the season, which costs real money; at Tier 50, the Legend Pass gave 113 blueprints which, combined with the blueprints obtained from completing all season goals, would be enough to unlock the Victor and star it up to . Additional blueprints were initially only obtainable through limited-time offers in the Legend Shop that either cost real money or were available for purchase with tokens after the Legend Pass was purchased.
