ACR Performance: An Aston Specialist Is Born

Aston Martin cars have always fused performance with refinement and luxury with speed, which is why I classify them as the gentleman’s choice.

It’s a recipe that has worked well for the brand, especially in recent times and now with the fresh direction the company has taken with the DB11 and the new era of forced induction.


But in the last few years Aston has seemingly developed a bit of a naughty side and gone off on a tangent with some of its cars. That probably came to be with the introduction of the Vantage V8 and then the crazier V12 version. The latter was a car that maintained an undeniable Aston character but leaned a little more heavily towards the performance side of things. Then of course Aston Martin went racing with it.


It’s a philosophy that ACR Performance is tapping into. It’s not often you see a new tuning brand born, but that is exactly what this Aston specialist has launched.

Predominately focused on sourcing and selling secondhand classics as well as modern Astons, Tokyo-based Alpha Classics came to the realization that it was the perfect time to launch a bespoke brand that caters to those that want their Aston Martins to stand out a little bit more.


A lot of the inspiration has come from Aston Martin’s V12 Vantage GT3 of which Alpha Classics has had a bit to do with through its own racing programme in Japan.


This year’s Tokyo Auto Salon was seen to be the perfect event to launch the brand to an international audience – and ACR Performance didn’t hold back.

These guys have proved how tastefully-designed aero pieces can complement the lines of some of the prettiest and best designed cars in the world. ACR’s V12 Vantage borrows heavily from the GT3 car with pumped fenders all blended in and executed to the highest level, proving that if done well FRP can be indeed be a decent material. The additional aero package adds some nice carbon touches to spice up the front, sides, and the rear of the car with a ducktail spoiler and an aggressive GT-style diffuser.


Then there was this V8 Vantage Roadster.


The same aero treatment works wonders on the drop-top version of the baby Aston, especially when lowered on appropriately-styled aftermarket wheels. The Vantage is just the beginning for this company, with the bigger V12-powered also lined up to receive the ACR Performance treatment too. Think of it all as a Japanese tuner take on a legendary British brand.

Japan wins again. Over fenders on Aston should never of happened but I'm glad it has. The convertible has just the right amount of style and aggression.


Phwoarrrrr – that V12 Vantage looks amazing. Awesome colour too.
The fender line and spoiler shape seem inspired by more than the GT3 car however – Tra Kyoto GT86 anyone?


Moulded over fenders - Yes

Bagged - No


You should really pay their shop a visit Dino, then share it all worth us! Love that V8 Vantage!


That roadster is so hot.
and here i was wondering if LB would be getting their hands onto something like this...


What silliness is hidden behind those paint flaps lol?
Astons are always cool, always a head turner, and these are pretty damn rad too.


Jay_TrackAddict  But... it's a CONVERTIBLE FFS!!!!
A company that comes out with a modded convertible when they could've wrestled more performance from the coupe lost all credibility. But then it's Japan, so the rules don't apply.
Instead of offering something useful like manual conversions for the Vanquish, they slap playmobile parts on a V8 vantage. The inhumanity...


SachaAlbarda Jay_TrackAddict If you look veeery closely, or just read the article, you will see they had two cars on display (well 3 including the FIA GT3) and lowe and behold one is a coupe!!!! The humanity...


Jordan_Butters Yes there is some Miura in there. Looks so refined when nicely integrated


JohnLeden I will as their stock is quite impressive most of the time and they are only 20 min from me!


These are just show cars, I want to see some proper track cars with this aggressive styling.

Yikes?!? Are those tail lights OEM, or aftermarket?


Why would that even matter?


SachaAlbarda Because everyone knows that a convertible can't be a performance car....


3nigm4 SachaAlbarda Lol exactly, too bad no one told all the Can-Am race car designers and LM P2 aerodynamicists...




Nickgenerazio32 Because it's a $103,000 Exotic Sports Car with what looks like cheesy, eBay tail lights and I was hoping Aston Martin wouldn't be to blame for it.

I am in shock that a person able to earn $9711

This is overfenders done right. Smooth and it suits and even compliments the body. Racing inspired aftermarket parts are good, and even more when they are from the same GT3 version of the car. Oke, the rear diffuser is kind of in your face, but the rest is very pretty. Still a gentlemans racer.


eejjkk If you were to look at the previous years of DB's, you'll see that they came with these tailights. Not sure if it was on all the recent generations, but they have been around. IMO, they look good on the silver cars. Atleast they don't have the little red bulbs in there like the old Altezza civics HAH

Great design. Though I would have changed a few things, like:

1. Rear fenders should have gone all the way down the rear bumper
2. Spoiler should have been the same color as the body
3. Car should not have been bagged
4. Rear diffuser should have been toned down

Change those and you have a more grown-up looking altered Aston. As for the front it looks great. Love it!


I didn't even know that any one able to earn $9891
