Aston’s 380kph supercar… that never was

A dog. Not just any old dog, but a wrinkled, droopy-lipped mutt with a heavy-set frame and an adorable face. A rich heritage of adopting names from prestigious hillclimbs, blades, a lucky leaf, historic racing circuits and most famously, the initials of the man who turned the company around, was clearly thrown out of the window for Aston Martin's 1980 ‘Project K.901'.

Chiefly because they named it ‘Bulldog'. And be in no doubt, this was one seriously quick Aston Martin.
