Aston Martin will take on the sports car elite head to head when it enters this DBR9 competition car in next year's Le Mans 24 Hours. The manufacturer's motorsport arm, Aston Martin Racing, has produced this DB9-based racer in collaboration with specialists Prodrive, and plans to enter it in several international meets next year, including Le Mans.

AMR will then supply six cars to three yet-to-be-appointed Works racing teams to compete in major international sports car series. These will be independent teams each racing two DBR9s with Gaydon's full factory support.

A very limited number of the cars will be also made available to selected customers, prepared to the same specification as the Works cars.

Driven this week

  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4

    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
  • Vauxhall Insignia Country Tourer
    First Drive
    13 October 2017
    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
