One such early factory development vehicle was a unique sight at AMOC race meetings during the early 2000’s; raced by Ronnie Farmer and modified and prepared by Aston Engineering of Derby. Whilst it runs in the mildly modified class, the aggressive front aerofoil is anything but mild. In addition to the factory developed DB7 GT, this is the only other DB7 that I have ever seen actively on the race track.
This impressive car secured it’s first outright victory at the AMOC Mallory Park meeting during 2001.
A second car has been owned by Geoffrey Marsh, well known in AMOC Racing circles, the car has never been fully developed due to owning a similar DB7 V12 race car. It has a much strengthened RML bodyshell, roll cage, improved suspension and a 6 cylinder engine developed by Aston Engineering of Derby. The car was offered with an un-numbered i6 body shell at the 2015 Bonhams Aston Matin Works auction.
