Rare Cars You’ll Only See In Pictures-1979 Aston Martin Bulldog

3321dmx

This drivable concept car was developed to demonstrate the ability of the factory to produce a supercar for the 80’s. It was built in the UK, but is a left-hand-drive car. It has an incredibly low height at 43 inches high, and featured a sharp, distinctive gull-wing door design. Powering the Bulldog was a 5.3L twin-turbo V8 delivering 700 hp. A powerful engine was not the car’s only enticing feature. Its split rim alloy wheels were fitted with blades around the circumference to direct cool air to the brakes to ensure they remained reliable at high speed.

Originally, it had been intended to be a limited run of about 25,  but the car remains totally unique.  With radical looks that have divided critics to this day, the Aston Martin Bulldog was a feat of engineering that was years ahead of its time.
