University of Le Mans – Technical Bachelor in Racing Cars : Design and Development

Late last year Fisher Performance Cars were approached by Le Mans university to assist in their internship. Guillaume de Gayardon (Will) spent the whole of November with the Fisher Group living in rented accommodation in Kidderminster. His prime objective was to help with communication and to experience a retail business outside the motor sport sector.

Guillaume worked with nearly every model of Aston Martin from a DB6 up to a new Vantage, he also spent time with our restoration workshop. At such a young age his professionalism and work ethic are a credit to him, the university and group Oreca motorsport company.

It’s a breath of fresh air to see a young technician, live in a different country and work outside his comfort zone and still show commitment and interest in our business and the Aston Martin Marque. We would like to wish Guillaume every success in his career and thank him for all his hard work.

AMR twin clutch

Fisher Performance Cars – AMR PERFORMANCE CLUTCH

Designed for an even sportier drive, the AMR Performance Clutch has been developed to deliver quicker transition through gears, increased torque capacity and a lighter clutch feel. Available for all V8 and V8 Vantage S manual models, the AMR Performance Clutch offers an exciting upgrade option that brings a new dimension of race-inspired dynamism and performance.

LIGHTWEIGHT FLYWHEEL
Inspired by the design of the flywheel from the GT4 race car, the lightweight flywheel has been machined from through-hardened EN24T alloy steel, ensuring incredible tensile strength and toughness.

A reduction in the flywheel weight reduces inertia, giving an enhancement in responsive feel to the powertrain. This reduced inertia also works to make the system more reactive to changes in rotational speed, resulting in a smoother, lighter feeling through the gear gate.

TWIN PLATE CLUTCH
In addition to the lightweight flywheel, the AMR Performance Clutch is made up of a high-performance twin plate clutch with a significant increase in friction material surface area when compared to the standard clutch. This can help to enhance clutch life as well as torque capacity.

The twin plate clutch mass more focussed towards centre of flywheel, which is a contributing factor in delivering the significantly improved responsiveness. Finally, the reduction in clamping pressure decreases the clutch pedal weight, making it an easier and more enjoyable to drive even in heavy traffic.

Aston Martin DBS 59 celebrates 60 years of Le Mans 24 Hours fame

Aston Martin won the Le Mans 24 Hours in 1959. 60 years on, Aston Martin Cambridge has commissioned the firm’s bespoke Q division to create a run of 24 special editions: the DBS 59.

They’re derived from the DBS Superleggera, itself a name that first appeared in 1959, on the DB4 Superleggera. These days, the 715hp, 211mph machine is Aston’s fastest new car. The perfect base for a Le Mans-inspired edition.

DBS-59-1

Aston Martin actually finished 1-2 in the 1959 24 Hours of Le Mans, with Carroll Shelby’s DBR1 taking the chequered flag ahead of the rest – a field that included works Ferrari and Porsche entries, plus the famous Ecurie Ecosse Jaguars.

In Aston Martin folklore, then, the DBR1 is a very special car. One that inspired someone to pay £17.5 million for one at auction in 2017, making it the most valuable British car in history.

Not special enough? Then you’ll love the saddle leather helmet pods in the rear – which hold bespoke DBS 59 race helmets, suits and gloves.

Aston will also sell you period blue race overalls with DBS 59 Aston Martin logos, string-backed gloves similar to Shelby’s own, some bespoke luggage and an Aston Martin Racing Green car cover.

How can you tell which of the 24 DBS 59 you have? From a painted white roundel next to the side strakes. Choose the car cover and the same number will feature on it.

Aston Martin VP and chief marketing officer Simon Sproule said: “When Aston Martin Cambridge expressed a desire to create a limited run of DBS Superleggeras inspired by the DBR1’s famous Le Mans victory we knew it had to be something special.

“My favourite element on the ‘DBS 59’ are the seat backs that feature fabric inspired by the DBR1 seat material, but there are countless touches that will intrigue and delight”.
