Analogue sports car from the last century from Aston Martin

Sports car in two places – a converted version of the DBR1.

Thanks to anonymous informants, one of the auto publishers managed to find out that Aston Martin is developing a double speeder that will have an open cockpit. The car will be based on DBR1, which won the “24 hours of Le Mans” in 1959.

Engineers want to combine the design of the last century with modern style. The layout of the original car will not change either – the power plant is located in front and the drive wheels in the back. There is evidence that 88 units of cars will be released.

In 1959, Aston Martin became the winner of Le Mans. The DBR 1/2 pilots were Carroll Shelby and Roy Salvadori, who managed to leave Ferrari behind. DBR 1/4 got the second place. The car was equipped with an engine for 254 horsepower. The power plant worked in conjunction with the five-speed manual transmission.

Such a model will be produced due to the growing demand of collectors. In 2018, the Ferrari SP1 and SP2 barquets debuted, and in the summer of 2019, information was received that McLaren would also get a speedster. The top line of the Ultimate Series will be replenished with a two-door and will have an open cockpit and a squat silhouette.

Recall that recently Aston Martin Vanquish V12 will acquire a limited edition.
