Look at that. Don’t you just miss it? Huh, the super flat Aston Martin Bulldog is one among those cars that I miss. Well, just as I miss it I will be bringing it back to you. Just a glimpse of the much missed Bulldog.
It was built in the UK and was designed by William Towns. It was a one hit wonder because it didn’t last for so long in terms of production. The limited edition Aston Martin Bulldog had only 25 units built and it was named under the codename DP K9 which was taken from a Doctor Who character. Usually, UK cars are right-hand-drive ones but the infamous Bulldog was made to be a left-hand-drive one. It was made super flat and it came measuring up to 43 inches high with sharp features and a limited gull-wing door design. The interior part was placed with a monitor that was added in later production. The car is run by a powerful V8 with 5.3L twin-turbo engine powering up a 700 bhp.
The first test drive of the Bulldog was done in the late 1979 and it turned out to be a great success. The car was impressively delivering a top speed of 191 mph from its theoretical 237 mph top speed. It was officially launched in the Bell Hotel located at Aston Clinton in March 27, 1980. It was sold to the highest bidder, holding £130,000 - the total price of its total design and construction.
It was also brought to the US and was back a few years ago to Britain with a new green interior from its original silver and light gray exterior paint job. The original dark brown interior was also changed to black to light tan.
