Collection Of Aston Martins In Team Racing Colours To Be Offered At Bonhams|Cars Bond Street Sal

Bonhams|Cars will offer theV8 Racing Collection – a series of seven 2010 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Coupés celebrating Aston Martins Racing heritage – at The Bond Street Sale on December 15. Commissioned from Aston Martin by a VIP customer, each V8 Vantage is liveried in one of the team’s iconic colours and boasts less than 500km on the odometer.

Notable amongst the collection is a V8 Vantage in the livery known as ‘Kermit’, the name affectionately given to Aston Martin’s bright green Nürburgring 24h race car. The Vantage in both V8 and V12 format has competed in numerous 24h races at the German circuit. The ‘Gulf Oil’ colourshave graced some of the most well-known racing machines worldwide. Aston Martin raced with the Gulf livery with both prototype and GT racing cars, with memorable wins at Le Mans in 2008 with the DBR9 (GT1 category) and 2014 with the V8 Vantage GTE (GTE Am Category).

After being kept on static display as part of the extensive private collection, the Vantages have each been recommissioned recently by the Stratton Motor Company. Each was built to EC specification with numerous extra-cost options.

The collection is presented on the heels of The Orange Collection, eight Aston Martins from the same era in a bespoke tangerine orange with matching orange interior, that were offered in the Bonhams|Cars Zoute Sale this past October. After sparking international attention, the enthusiasm continued on auction day and all eight cars reached impressive results. The entire collection sold for €750,000.
