Firing on... six! Marvellous Aston Martin Project 214 recreation

‘This Aston Martin Project 214 may be a recreation, but it’s a very special one. Owned and run by Martin Brewer, the car is exactly as it should have been in period and has full FIA papers, with a furry mascot zip-tied to the roll cage the only erroneous detail. The two originals competed at Le Mans in 1963; one is still in existence, the other was written off at the Nurburgring – an accident which tragically claimed the life of driver Brian Hetreed.

Powered by a 3.7-litre straight six from the DB4GT, the Project 214 has been in Martin’s ownership for ten years and has raced at Laguna Seca, Le Mans Legends, Silverstone Classic – and later this month will appear in the Graham Hill Trophy at the 73rd Members’ Meeting here at Goodwood.

We had a chance to video the car ahead of race day and, as our video shows, it both looks and sounds the real deal…
