Following the Prodrive built car, the AML Customer Service Division (now Works Service) took one to the early press demonstrator DB7’s, chassis 100006, and fully rebuilt the car with the following specification
- Safety devices roll cage with removable side bars
- Two full race Reccaro competition seats, in black hide, to match black interior in Alcantara and quilted vinyl
- New aluminium bonnet, boot lid and front wings to replace the composite originals
- Safety cut off switch in drivers side front wing
- New style door mirrors mounted on cheator panels
- Perspex side windows
- Fuel cell
- TWR enhanced 3.2 litre, 6 cylinder engine
- Competition clutch and shot-peened 5 speed manual transmission
- Prodrive designed uprated front and rear suspension, plus oil-cooled rear axle. Penske gas shock absorbers, adjustable from the cockpit
- Special competition brakes with balance adjustable from the cockpit
- Special tuned exhaust with centre catalyst
The car was then also painted in Almond Green metallic with white roundels and a neat contrasting yellow band around the grille, reminiscent of the 1950’s DB3S’s and DBR2. After extensive testing, the cars were demonstrated to potential customers, but sadly the project was not proceeded with and and the race series abandoned too. Both cars were subsequently sold off by AML in 1996. Despite the ending of the project, the GT was successful as a mobile test bed to prove the benefits of it’s race components and systems and to enhance the DB7 road car, in particular, the factory fitted Driving Dynamics package.
The AML built car, 10006, appeared in the 2004 AM/Bonhams auction where it was sold to a marque enthusiast. The prototype car, 100001 is also now in private ownership.
