We definitely loved our modern day commuters but something that always stays as an overhang is the admiration for vintage beauties. Reliving the glorious era by recreating the cars of the past is quite a fad and this time it is the Phoenix, Arizona based Ritz Auto which has given in with the recreation of the Aston Martin DBR2 Racer. The design stays ‘almost’ the same but the exterior, chassis and the engine have undergone the grind. Ritz Auto has chosen state-of-the-art carbon-fiber tub in combination with aluminum honeycomb monocoque chassis that weighs an astounding 220lbs only. This feather like feel has been further graced by carbon-fiber body panels lined with Nomex.

What’s more is the addition of the Aerogel (NASA developed), a heat insulator being used in a road-going automobile for the very first time. These cars are understandably custom-built and you can let Ritz Auto know your engine specifications. You get o choose anything from the Jaguar-derived inline-six and V12 engines to a Corvette LS3 V8.
