Gaydon, 23 December 2010. The Aston Martin V12 engine sits not just at the heart of the One-77, DBS, DB9, Rapide and V12 Vantage but also the 2010 DBR1-2 Le Mans race car.

 

The V12 Vantage was launched to critical acclaim in 2009, and in 2010, it arrived in the US. It is the ultimate performance interpretation of the Vantage range featuring a 6.0 liter V12 engine producing 510 bhp (380 kW / 517 PS) and 570 Nm (420 lb.ft) and has been dynamically honed to deliver an unparalleled driving experience.

 

The V12 engined DBR1-2 is an Aston Martin LMP1 race car which competed throughout 2009 and 2010. It won the Le Mans Series in 2009 and achieved three podiums in 2010.

It is this revered engine that sits at the heart of these evocative driving machines.

 

This unique footage captures these two iconic road and race cars in action for the first time in an unconventional road setting.
