CMC 1980 Aston Martin Bulldog Coupe
In 1980, Aston Martin constructed a mid-engine prototype called the Bulldog with the intention of making the fastest production car in the world. After building just one prototype and hitting 192 MPH on a test track, the project was deemed to be too expensive and killed. UK-based Classic Motor Cars now has the only Bulldog in existence residing in its shop and getting a complete restoration — with the hope of breaking the 200 MPH barrier once it's finished. Powered by a 5.8 liter V8, the Bulldog was thought to be capable of 237 MPH during development, and CMC plans on finding out exactly how fast once the 18-month restoration is finished.
