Built and developed by Aston Martin specialist Robin Hamilton, this car first raced in club events in 1974. In 1977, it finished in 17th place at LeMans. It appeared there again in 1979 and gained its nickname of 'The Muncher' when it melted a piston and had to retire. It appeared in the Six Hour race at Silverstone in 1979 and again in 1980 driven by Derek Bell and David Preece. It is shown here, at the 2007 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, as it last raced in 1980 when it set a World Land Speed Record for towing a trailer-caravan at 152 mph. Although not a factory race car, Aston Martin assisted in the car's development.
