HBH Aston Martin Bulldog GT
The Bulldog GT by Danish company HBH is a project of a one-off mid-engined sportscar based on the Aston Martin V12 Vantage.
The Bulldog GT project is being developed by HBH, a Danish company which takes its name from the last names of its founders: Jesper Hermann, Christian Brandt and Torben Hartvig, with the first two being responsible for the design of the Zenvo ST1.
The car is equipped with the Aston Matin 6.0 liter V12 unit, which has been tuned with two superchargers which increase the output up to 666 hp and 756 Nm of torque, enabling a 0-100 km/h time of 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 300 km/h.
The engine’s central position has redefined the proportions of the all-aluminum body, which features a relatively short and lower hood and an elongated rear end, while maintaining a design language very faithful to the Aston Martin’s style.
From the side, the large side air intakes act as a distinctive graphic element which helps to disguise the length of the rear quarter panel, which has been significantly extended by pushing the cabin and the doors forward to leave space for the engine.
While the windows graphics have been maintained practically unchanged, the rear end was interestingly reinterpreted with tighter lines, and shows some graphic similarities with the Audi R8.
HBH is planning to sell the one-off car together with 50% of the production and design rights, so the client will be able to decide whether to keep the Bulldog GT as a one-off or to allow a limited production.
The first model is expected to be developed during 2012 and to be presented in early 2013.
