Aston Martin offers unique racing collectibles

Motorsport fans can now get a set of the actual iconic Aston Martin wings that have adorned a V8 Vantage GTEs during the 2016 FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC).

Available as a limited-edition set of 250 pieces worldwide, each collection is framed and includes all nine ‘WEC’ wings badges mounted on a clean white mount. To ensure their authenticity, each case is individually numbered.

Incorporating the national colours of the countries Aston Martin Racing has competed in throughout the 2016 season, each piece was handcrafted in Birmingham’s world-renowned Jewellery Quarter by established manufacturer Vaughtons.

Each enamelled wing takes a total of 20 hours to produce and is created using a combination of state-of-the-art CAD equipment and age-old Jewellery making machinery; some of which dates back over 120 years.

With this year’s WEC season finishing at next week’s title showdown in Bahrain on Saturday 19 November, Aston Martin Racing remains in the hunt for all GT competitions.

The Danish duo of Marco Sørensen and Nicki Thiim currently lead the GT Drivers and GTE Pro titles in their #95 V8 Vantage GTE, while Aston Martin Racing is also locked in an intense battle for overall GT Manufacturer honours.

Priced at £3,750 RRP, these collectibles are available to order via the Aston Martin Online Store, Aston Martin dealers or the marque’s London Mayfair boutique at No. 8 Dover St.
