Leather bound beautiful book in a slip case. In 2004 Aston Martin created the DBR9 for the GT1 regulations of the FIA GT series. In total, one prototype and 19 racing cars were created, which were used in various series until 2011. A comprehensive book about everything that has to do with the DBR9 Written by Thomas A. Gruber and Christoph Mäder Technical chapters are not only lovingly described in great detail, but also illustrated. In some places for better clarity, partially transparent foil pages go deeper and deeper into the respective matter. Once all the components of the car are assembled in the book, the authors turn their attention to the individual racing teams that over the years have used one or even several DBR9s in various racing series worldwide. Only in Australia and at the South Pole has the car never started in races. The book ends with fold-out tables that list the exact racing history for each of the 19 chassis built. Limited edition 2,700 copies.
