1963 Aston Martin DP215 Spyder
The DP215 was a prototype racing coupe with a long aerodynamic Kamm tail rear section. Phil Hill, in the 1963 Le Mans practice had been recorded at 319.6 km/h (198.6 mph) and Ted Cutting, the Aston Martin designer, is certain that DP215 had, in fact, exceeded 200 mph (320 km/h).
I remember stories from Phil Hill and Bob Bondurant telling about racing the Cobra Daytona coupe’s in the era (and Phil raced the DP215) — and although very fast they were also very loud within. (I’ve been within and they are LOUD) Both preferred open roof racecars for racing events when all-out speed didn’t matter. Thus my idea of taking the DP215 coupe and chopping her roof off and making into spyder form and without all the racing lipstick applied so it could be used on the street.
Of course this version has a modern era Aston Martin drivetrain, new coachwork and new tubular chassis as the only remaining DP215 sold in August 2018 for US$21,455,000. I doubt anyone would modify the original.
