Aston Martin DBR9 is the racing incarnation of the notorious Bond-machine DB9. The car is based on the stock V12 coupe with a top speed as of 295 km/h. In order to hit the track, DBR9 get rid of the aluminum body panels in favor of carbon fiber composite. The bottom of the car was made completely flat. To optimize rear downforce a carbon fiber wing was added. The heart of this racing Aston retained the V12 block and the cylinder head of the stock car.
Aston Martin DBR9 debuted in 2005 when it won the Sebring 12 Hours in the LMGT1 category. Even though the start was more than promising, the British racer became third at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, behind the Corvette. A year later, DBR9 couldn’t repeat this success and finished again behind the Corvette. In 2007, Aston Martin finally became victorious at Le Mans with the DBR9. It was a perfect run for Aston Martin after all of their racers successfully finished and took the cup.
Aston Martin DBR9 #009 in Gulf livery became the Le Mans class winner. It was raced by the factory backed Prodrive team Aston Martin Racing. David Brabham, Darren Turner, and Rickard Rydell were faster than anyone else in GT1 class at Le Mans and carved down their names in the motorsports history.
