The soapbox racer is designed to look like the bonkersĀ 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:
