Was not the DBR1/4 car run for some time in Australia and New Zeland?
Looks and sounds exhilarating, and probably drives like that too. It has a transaxle 5-speed dog-box (transaxle to improve weight distribution. In Octane Magazine's third issue the Aston is said to be a handful sometimes, because it needs to be properly throttle-tickled to take the bends. The test driver claims it would be suited for a sprint race, and a Jaguar D-type would be less demanding in an endurance race. I don't care anyway, cos if I drove them I would be too happy to be critical.
