Before the cyber truck... Before The DeLorean... There was the Bulldog. In 1978 Company Director Alan Curtis gave the go ahead for a prototype of a car that would act as a totem for the marques quest to look to the future and serve as a unique demonstration of Aston Martins innovation. William Towns was tasked with the job of stylising the body of Astons first mid-engined car. The Bulldog had many innovative features beyond the angular wedge body, including Five hidden headlamps, Gullwing doors, and following on from the Lagonda multiple LED touch screens. The project was given the code name K9, presumably after the Doctor Who character, and was initially planned for a small production run of 15-20 but following a luke warm reception and high production costs meant that only 1 Bulldog was made. The project was cancelled by the new chairman Victor Gauntlett. Aston Martin sold the Bulldog in 1984 for £130,000.
