The 1957 Aston Martin DBR2 Reborn
The infamous 1957 DBR2 is one of the rarest Aston Martins in existence. Only two were ever built as part of Aston Martin’s Grand Prix program. Produced during the golden age of sports cars, its sensuous curves make it one of the most beautiful cars of its time. Although, priced at £8million each, the odds of ever driving one seem very long indeed.
That was until a small company in Phoenix, Arizona took the DBR2 as their inspiration and rebuilt it using Formula One technology. Rizk Auto now produce the 1957 Aston Martin DBR2 with a carbon monocoque chassis, modern brakes and suspension and a Jaguar V12 engine under the bonnet. As you can see it is breathtaking, from its fluid carbon fibre bodywork to the exquisite leather trim. So how much does one cost? Well it’s currently available for custom order, but no pricing has been announced? As the saying goes, if you have to ask the price…
