In cooperation with Star Electric Cars of France, Aston Martin will produce a supercar named 'The Aston Martin Super Sport.' The company will produce only eight units available at a price of € 7,500,000.

The supercar is powered by a twin-turbocharged 5.4 liter V8 engine, which transfers energy to the wheels via a six-speed manual trans-axle. The limited edition supercar is available in left-hand drive and features upward hinging doors.

Implications - The 'Aston Martin Super Sport' is a new version of the car that James Bond made famous. By no means am I a 'car person,' but seeing a car like this helps me understand why cultural icons from James Bond to rappers like Rick Ross, hold such a reverence for the powerful luxury vehicle.
