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”.

The McLaren MP4-12C

The McLaren MP4-12C, later known simply as the McLaren 12C, is a sports car designed and manufactured by McLaren Automotive. It is the first production car wholly designed and built by McLaren since the McLaren F1, which ended production in 1998. The car’s final design was unveiled in September 2009, and was launched in mid-2011.

McLaren-12C

The MP4-12C features a carbon fibre composite chassis, and is powered by a longitudinally-mounted Rear mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout McLaren M838T 3.8 L; 231.8 cu in (3,799 cc) twin-turbocharged V8 engine, developing approximately 600 PS (592 bhp; 441 kW) at 7500 rpm and around 600 N⋅m (443 lbf⋅ft) of torque at 5600 rpm. The car makes use of Formula 1-sourced technologies such as “brake steer”, where the inside rear wheel is braked during fast cornering to reduce understeer. Power is transmitted to the wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.

McLaren-MP4

A convertible version of the car called the MP4-12C Spider, renamed the 12C Spider in 2012, is also available. In February 2014, McLaren announced the related 650S, with revised bodywork, upgraded engine and other technical improvements. In April 2014, McLaren announced the end of production of the 12C.

James Bond’s Aston Martin DB5 is being relaunched

The Goldfinger DB5. Just like the DB4 GT Continuation models we saw at the end of 2016, Aston is building 25 brand-new Aston Martin DB5s, built as “authentic reproductions” of the exact car that Connery, Brosnan and Craig all drove in various screen outings.

By authentic, Aston mean things like revolving numberplates “and more”. We suspect the ejector seats and oil spray probably won’t make the cut, though we live in hope.

Each will be assembled at Aston’s Newport Pagnell factory – where the original DB5 was made – and will feature “sympathetic modifications”. And it’ll come in any colour you want as long as that colour is Silver Birch. Just like in the movies.

The original car came with a 4.0-litre straight-six with 282bhp and 280lb ft of torque. If it’s the same philosophy as the DB4 GT Continuation, expect the same, only slightly tweaked for reliability.

Aston will get assistance from EON Productions, the company responsible for the Bond films, and also a helping hand from Oscar winner Chris Corbould, who not only was the special effects supervisor on eight James Bond films, but also worked on Chris Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy.

The cars will be ready for customers in the later part of 2019, though as you would expect, they’re not cheap: £3.3m (including taxes) a pop.

“The connection between Aston Martin and James Bond is something of which we are very proud,” explains Aston boss Andy Palmer. “It is remarkable that the DB5 remains the definitive James Bond car after so many years.

“To own a Silver Birch DB5, complete with gadgets and built to the highest standards in the very same factory as the original James Bond cars? That is surely the ultimate collectors’ fantasy,” he added.

Collectors’ fantasy indeed. Not one of the 25 reproductions will be road legal. Aston intends to build three more – one for EON, one for itself, and a final one that’ll be auctioned off for charity.

Whatever you do however, don’t touch the little red button…
