Aston Martin DBR9

The DBR9 is the racing equivalent of the DB9 and its racing career has been quite successful, notable victories including Silverstone 2005 and the Le Mans GT class 2009. Obviously, a race car can't just be a roaad car with stickers, it has to be extensively modified. Because the DBR9 is more powerful and lighter than the standard DB9 and so as double the power-to-weight ratio.

The Power Lap Edit

Wheelspinning off the line, The Stig tore round the track a bit like a majestic ballet dancer juggling with chainsaws. It recorded an excellent time of 1.08.6. However, because Aston can't sell the car, it was disqualified.
