Rizk Automobile rebuilt the 1957 Aston Martin with the challenge of using modern Technology. The 1957 Aston Martin DBR2 LeMans Race car epitomizes the pinnacle of beautiful mechanical design, when cars were still being described as sexy.
The 1957 Aston Martin DBR2 Revival features a space-frame chassis made of carbon monocoque. Rizk uses a material called Carbon-Nomex for the body panels (carbon panels with Nomex honeycomb). It has energy absorption and shear properties, is fire retardant and has a pretty high strength-to-weight ratio.
1957 Aston Martin DBR2 revival by Rizk Automobile Power will come from a far less exotic Jaguar straight-six or V12 engine, or a LS3 V8 engine borrowed from Corvette. Also is the 5-speed manual box for the Jaguar engines. A 6-speed manual and automatic are on offer with the LS3 V8.
Price for the model pictured here is 180,000 US dollars, or 128,000 euros. The car is built at an aircraft facility in Phoenix, Arizona.
