During the pre-war period, Aston-Martin was very focused on ensuring racing success as the most significant owner of the company pre-war, 'Bert' Bertelli, was a both a very successful racing driver and a master at creating a car that excelled at long distance endurance racing. Aston-Martin named this model in honour of success in the Le Mans 24 hour race and these cars were raced in many events with success in period. Notably, a Le Mans competed in the original Mille Miglia, thus ensuring that this model is welcomed in the current event as well as most other events.
This particular car, built in 1933, has a great track record on the modern Mille Miglia with a number of appearances in recent years. This car is very well known by us. Until the early 2001 this car had never been rebuilt and at that point a full restoration on the car was undertaken. Ecurie Bertelli re-built the engine in 2015.
There are a number of subtle upgrades that make this car extremely usable as well as a potent rally car including a modified gearbox allowing very fast gear changes, pedal conversion and all the many touches needed for proper rallying. All modifications can be reversed to put this car back to standard if required.
Current FIVA papers and UK registered with EU taxes paid. It has just returned from this year's Nuvolari Rally where it finished 3rd overall out of 300 entries.
