CAR designer Afzal Kahn has made his motoring dream a reality by building his own supercar worth £300,000. The car dubbed Vengeance was inspired by his favourite Aston Martin models – and even Hannibal Lecter.

While the exterior was modelled on the Vanquish the internal components were taken from the DB9. His new one-of-a-kind super car is fitted with a 6.0 litre V-12 engine, the same engine as the DB9.
The car can do 0-60 mph in just over four seconds and has an output of 510 horsepower. The Aston Martin-inspired car has been in the making since 2006 when Afzal first thought of the idea to build the car and it has recently been unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.
In development for close to six years, the body, made from aluminium, was crafted using traditional hammer-formed methods, with each vehicle built by Kahn’s team of craftsmen and automotive experts.The vehicle was unveiled at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.
