Aston Martin seemed to have dragged their feet in terms of the One-77, a supercar that has impressed the entire world with its magnificent beauty and its 750hp naturally aspirated 7.3-liter V12. And this admiration ignited a passion for an Aston Martin supercar that will not be so easily extinguished. In fact, this passion is what led British designer, Christopher Chilcott, into designing the Viceroy, a hydrogen powered supercar.

The designer states that the Viceroy was created as a celebration of everything British and that it illustrates the return of cutting edge British vehicles such as the McLaren F1, the Jaguar XJ220, and the Aston Martin DB5. Its features include a long hood, elegant lines, and large wheels that were inspired by the "bespoke tailoring and prestige of Savile Row in London."

The design is definitely a one-off, but its style and presence can clearly be identified as Aston Martin. You never know, maybe Aston will take him up on his design. We wouldn’t object.

Hit us up with your thoughts on the Viceroy in the comments section below.

Yeah, no wonder why this car doesn’t make it to the production. The speed performance of the car is great though its kind of gas guzzler.

I don’t think that this vehicle has an impressive styling. Well, no wonder why this car has remain as a concept vehicle!

The Aston Martin Viceroy is the brainchild of British designer, Christopher Chilcott who wanted to show off his passion for Aston.

The styling uses the trademark cues that identify the current models from Aston Martin, and at the same time explores a new expressive surface language with creases and pinches lathered with convex and concave surfaces that feature heavily in the design.

Swansea Metropolitan Design student from the UK is clearly a bit of an Aston fan, having penned the futuristic Viceroy concept.

we are not talking about a pack of smokes carrying the logos of the famous British luxury manufacturer on a side, but about the brainchild of Christopher Chilcott, a student at the Swansea Metropolitan University.

The car draws inspiration from the “golden mile of tailoring,” as the Savile Row shopping street in London is known. Not from the design standpoint, but from the point of view of a car which, according to the designer, screams bespoke.

Volkswagen has acknowledged the talent of the 22-year old designer, who is currently attending a Master in Transportation Design at the Scuola Politecnica di Design (SPD) in Milan on a VW scholarship.

it’s just a design only, no harm done yet, but if time comes and made it into production, I bet they will use E technology or Hybrid engine.

Does anyone else is upset about the fact that these cars engine compartment is twice as big as drivers cabin?

How many times do we have to say this? If you’re designing an effing Aston Martin, don’t mess with the effing Aston Martin grille!
