How to build an Aston Martin GTE race car in 60secs

If you thought building a state-of-the-art race car was a long and complicated process, this footage would suggest otherwise. Indeed, it seems to be possible to build a whole car in little more than a minute.

At least it is if you speed up the footage quite a lot. This film shows the build of a GTE-spec Aston Martin Vantage at Prodrive, a process that takes about three weeks from bare shell to race-ready monster. Even that seems quite quick to us.

The car in question will be raced by Paul Dalla Lana, Pedro Lamy and Matthias Lauda in the World Endurance Championship GTE Am class. The crew won three races last year and finished third in the points.

Incidentally Canadian-based Dalla Lana, the Am(ateur) driver in the line-up and a very successful businessman, foots most of the bill for the year; this new car probably cost him half-a-million. Maybe more.

What do you think?
