Lola Aston Martin DBR1-2 B09/60 - howling V12 at Nürburgring 2019

Engine: 60° V12 NA / 5935 cc / 362.2 cu in Power: 650 hp / 484,2 kw @ 7500 rpm Torque: 770 Nm / 568 ft lbs @ 6000 rpm Weight: 900 kg / 1984.1 lbs Drivers: Christophe D'Ansembourg (BEL) Following initial success in 2008 with the Lola B08/60 and Aston Martin V12, AMR made the decision to fully move into the top flight LMP1 class and challenge for an overall win at Le Mans. The car to do this was the Lola-Aston Martin B09/60 (Aston Martin LMP1 for short), an evolution of the previous B08/60 and known internally as the DBR1-2. It was still built by Lola and co-developed by AMR/Prodrive and also involved the parts suppliers Michelin, Koni and BBS. AMR continued to receive sponsorship from Gulf Oil and the car carried the famous blue and orange livery. As in the 2008 car, the Lola-Aston Martin used the same V12 from the DBR9 GT1 car, but the standard Lola gearbox was replaced by a more compact Xtrac 6-speed with paddle-shift. An unusual feature to the car was the rearward brake cooling, which fed air to the brakes through two fans, and eliminates brake ducts on the body. The styling of the Aston Martin LMP1 was not only the product of the wind tunnel but Director of Design, Marek Reichman gave the car the look of an Aston. Two B09/60s (007 and 009) competed in the full LMS season including the 24 hour race where they were joined by a third car, 008 entered under the AMR Eastern Europe banner for Charouz Racing Systems. The number 007 car won the Le Mans Series overall.
