|Here’s a car that’s got it all, the looks, the sound, and boy, did this car deliver on the track!”
These are the words that Alain de Cadenet shouts from the wheel of a DBR1 as he powers through a dusty mountain pass as though racing the Targa Florio in the late 1950s.
Like others in the “Victory by Design” series, the Aston Martin show is a must for those who love the marque. Featuring the milestone cars that helped make Aston Martin such a charismatic name on the race tracks of the world, from the early cars of Lionel Martin, through to the present day.
The 16 valve twin-Cam and side-valve models of the twenties. The Le Mans and Ulster sports racers. The Speed models, like the “Red Dragon” and “Black Car”. The important cars from the David Brown era – the DB2, DB3, DB3S, DBR1, DBR2 and DBR4. The production sports racers like the DB4GT and DB4GT Zagato, and the unique Project 215. And the last factory-supported Aston racer, the AMR1.
With its spectacular widescreen photography, international locations, and Dolby Digital and DTS 5.1 Surround Sound, the Aston Martin “Victory by Design” show tells the story of the great British marque in a exciting and fresh new way.
