Press release after the jump.
Aston Martin is one of the great English marques that inspires us at Christopher Ward. The understated beauty of every Aston Martin is combined with a precision and power that is unique in the world of motor manufacture and is even the case when they turn their hand to motor sport.
David Brown (the DB that pre-fixes their model names) bought Aston Martin in 1947 and was determined to build on the company’s motor racing heritage, a vision that reached its ultimate fruition in 1959 when the magnificent DBR1/300 car took first and second places in the Le Mans 24 Hour Race and ultimately went on to win that years World Sportscar Championship.
The C70 DBR1, in a world-wide limited edition series of only 500 pieces, is a very worthy addition to our acclaimed Grand Prix Series and is the perfect watch for anyone who admires this quintessentially English sports car marque.
