This Aston Martin Rapide will compete in the Nurburgring 24 Hours this year.
It will be driven by Aston Martin chief executive Dr Ulrich Bez and a team of Aston Martin engineers.
Bez said: “This race represents the ultimate final engineering durability test for any sports car; it subjects the car to the toughest possible assessment under public scrutiny.
“The Rapide has the capability to carry four people in comfort but first and foremost it is a sports car, and we will subject it to the same tests we would our other sports cars."
The car will tackle the 15/16 May event in near-standard trim, with only safety, weight-saving and suspension modifications. It will also run on slicks.
Aston Martin has contested the race for the past five years, using race versions of both the V8 Vantage and V12 Vantage.
An Aston Martin V12 Vantage will also take part in the race. The driver line-up has not yet been announced.
