Two Iconic Aston Martin’s Show Cars Available for Collectors

Aston Martin Racing is delighted to offer for sale, two iconic race cars, prepared for display purposes.

Sporting the iconic Gulf livery, the V8 Vantage GTE and DBR 1-2, represent the pinnacle of sports car racing and have tremendous visual impact, especially when displayed outside their normal racing environment.

Aston-Martin-V8-Vantage-GTE

The Aston Martin V8 Vantage GTE for sale, competed at Le Mans in 2012 with Danish drivers Allan Simonsen, Cristoffer Nygaard and Kristian Poulsen at the wheel. The car qualified 3rd in GTE AM and took the lead shortly before retiring, denying the team a likely podium finish.

Today the car is utilised by Aston Martin Racing as a showcar and bears the teams new 2013 livery. The car has been prepared for display purposes, the engine and gearbox having been removed to make it easier to transport and manoeuvre into different venues and locations.

Aston-Martin-DBR-1-2

The Aston Martin DBR 1-2 for sale, served as Aston Martin Racing’s test and development chassis as the team prepared for its accession to the LMP1 class for the 2009-2011 seasons.

The DBR 1-2 was one of the most competitive petrol powered LMP1 cars to race during this period, the car taking 4 th place at the Le Mans 24hrs and winning the Le Mans Series Championship in 2009. The DBR 1-2 continued to be competitive until the end of its racing life, its last victory coming at Petit Le Mans in September 2011.

The team is in the process of preparing the chassis as a showcar, once again without engine and gearbox.

The guide price for each car is £250,000 ($390,000) and will include the following:

  • antage GTE or DBR 1-2 showcar
  • Branding on car #97 at a WEC race
  • This branding will also be applied to the showcar
  • 10 VIP hospitality places at the selected race
  • AMR drivers to attend a launch event

Whether kept as part of your private collection, on display in a showroom, at a launch or other promotional and customer events, these cars never fail to generate high levels of interest, even amongst non-motorsport followers.
