The world’s fastest growing automotive brand Aston Martin unveiled its latest competition-crushing monster truck programme – Project Sparta. Together with Aston Martin’s Formula One and FIA World Endurance Championship campaigns, the luxury British marque’s entry into the monster truck world adds even more excitement for fans worldwide.
Project Sparta, which has been engineered in conjunction with the brand’s upcoming DBX SUV, is going to shake up the Monster Jam series from 2019, taking on some of the world’s biggest names including Grave Digger, Big Kahuna, Ice Cream Man and Jailbird. The truck is named after the Ancient Greek province, famous for its battlefield warriors.
Project Sparta is another example of the marque’s ‘Q by Aston Martin Commission’ capabilities and remains a unique build for one very special customer. It is developed under the guidance of David King, Vice President Special Operations Officer & President of Aston Martin Racing. It will be powered by the same 6.5-litre naturally aspirated V12 designed for the recently unveiled Valkyrie AMR Pro producing 1,100bhp.
Winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans was a real thrill last year, but when I heard about this opportunity I just couldn’t say no. I hope the guys line up a great selection of cars for me to tear apart, because I’m sure this monster truck will really do the business. – Darren Turner
Under the customer’s request, three times Le Mans winner and Aston Martin Racing Works driver Darren Turner will compete in all Monster Jam events in 2019.
