Just For Funsies Aston Martin has made a video featuring the V12 Vantage and the Gulf LMP1 racer DBR1-2, which by the way is retired and will be replaced by a new one next season. The video is shot in the same sort of style and location that Jeremy Clarkson made his touching film about the V12 Vantage! But it’s a bit speedier.
It is for the first time these two awesome machines meet each other out in the free world.
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 litre 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.
