Aston Martin Makes the Ultimate Soapbox Derby RacerJuly 18th, 2017
If you have ever watched the Red Bull Soapbox Race and wondered what exactly went into building the cars, you need to watch this video. This year, Aston Martin entered the UK edition of the race with its own awesome soapbox car, called the AMR-SB.
The soapbox racer is designed to look like the bonkers Aston Martin Vantage GTE, only smaller, and capable of flying through the air. The race was called the “24 Seconds of Le Ally Pally” and Aston managed to take second place with its entry.
Judging by the stack of blueprints, Aston took its entry very seriously. The beast of a gravity-powered racer reached a top speed of 29 mph and grabbed 40 points for the feat. Check out more Aston soapbox derby action in the videos below:
