Engine: 90° V8 / 5340 cc / 325.9 cu in Power: 480 bhp / 358 kW @ 6500 rpm Weight: 1516 kg / 3,342 lbs Event: Spa Classic Race seriers: CER 2 (Classic Endurance Racing) Track: Spa-Francorchamps Date: 17-19 may 2019 Driver: Paul Chase-Gardner (GBR) [quote: Ultimatecarpage.com] Originally completed in 1969 as a DBS with chassis number DBSV8/10038/RC, this car was raced extensively and successfully by Robin Hamilton styled like a later V8. It then formed the basis for the unique RHAM/1 racing car, which was raced and further developed between 1977 and 1980. Arguably, its biggest success came in October of 1980 when it set the World Land Speed Record while towing a caravan. Retired from contemporary racing, it was preserved in its ultimate twin-turbo guise. It was regularly seen at AMOC events and also appeared at the 2007 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. It more recent years, it was acquired by a British enthusiast, who set about restoring the unique machine to its 1977 specification. In this guise, it was first seen in action at the 2016 Le Mans Classic.[/quote] Filmed with Canon Legria HF G40 + DM-100 microphone Related video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fFTlwAl0KkY My pictures http://belgian-motorsport.com https://www.flickr.com/photos/belgian-motorsport/sets/ Follow me on Facebook and instagram https://www.facebook.com/Belgian.Motorsport/ https://www.instagram.com/belgianmotorsport/ #astonmartin #dbs #rham1 --------------------------------------------------------- keywords --------------------------------------------------------- loud engine exhaust sound idle revs revving car automobile racecar canon legria hf g40 DM-100 dm100 mic microphone 1977 Aston Martin v8 dbs rham rham-1 rham1 hamilton Paul Chase-Gardner spa Francorchamps classic oldtimer historic cer cer2 Endurance Racing
