If it is a true bolt on system it may have been designed specially to fit with the contours of the DB6. But I'm sure they wouldn't need to make any major changes to make it applicable for other...

What an incredible looking concept. With that kind of power output it'll be interesting to see how it stands up to rivals like the Veryron Super Sport or Koenigsegg CCXR. Unfortunately none of these...
