After new British luxury automaker David Brown Automotive debuted the Sportback GT a year ago, we figured it was only a matter of time before the $753,000 Aston Martin-looking coupe came to the US. That time has come. Have you saved up?
Set to premier at the Quail Lodge in California during the Pebble Beach Automotive week in August, the Sportback GT gets much of its mechanical underpinnings from the Jaguar XKR. The 5.0-liter V8 creates 510 horsepower and 461 pound-feet of torque, with a six-speed automatic doing the shifting. The interior is all about elegance with the finest leather upholstery and wood trim aplenty. At last check the plan was to only create 100 of these handmade gems, so if you’ve got that $753k, act quick.
