David Brown had always set his sights on a win at Le Mans. This was to be achieved in 1959 together with victory in the World Sports Car Championship by the team of DBR1’s. This model proved to be highly successful, and along with the larger engined DBR2’s, scored many wins on both sides of the Atlantic. After achieving their goal, Aston Martin then concentrated on single seater racing. Only five DBR1’s and a pair of DBR2’s were ever constructed.
AS Motorsport recreates the glory of these cars with the production of the highly detailed ASM R1 Le Mans.
Each car is built to order with the customer having a range of options from which to choose.
This iconic replica car is only offered as a finished build. Our mission is to construct cars of quality, not quantity; to attain and maintain the best position in the market, giving maximum resale value of the vehicle. You can be assured of our care and commitment at all stages of build and your future ownership of the ASM R1.
The engineering and construction of our cars takes place on our family-run arable farm in the beautiful Norfolk countryside. We would be delighted to meet with you and show you more, or contact us for a chat to discuss your thoughts and requirements.
