Aston Martin produced this car in an extremely limited quantity. Only 19 original vehicles are known to exist today. This is simply too few to satisify the sports car enthusiast and historic racers urge to own and drive these stunning automobiles.

Original cars come to market very rarely and when they do, they sell for well over two million dollars. This price is simply out of reach for the average enthusiast. There are several other companies out there recreating these fine cars as aluminum bodied vehicles.

These are also very expensive since the donor car with which the project is begun, sells for around $100,000.00, so the final product ends up at around $400,000.00. In 1987 even Aston Martin decided to build some continuation cars. These were known as Sanction II and Sanction III cars. Several individuals have also recreated cars. Refer to the photo below of this aluminum recreation.

Classic Sports Cars unveiled their prototype of a racing legend for the vintage racing fraternity at the 2005 VIR Gold Cup Challenge.

The response was absolutely overwhelming. We knew we had something pretty special and exiting, and our belief was definitely confirmed by the people who were racing, the people at the car show, and the fans.

As we were pulling away from the auction area and going down the hill toward the paddock, Mr. Harvey Siegel the owner of VIR spotted the car and promptly made a U turn and followed us to the paddock. We received one of the best compliments from him. He got out of his car to check out our beautiful beast and said "neat car" he thought it was the real Mc Coy. He said " I had to see it up close, I didnít expect a car of this caliber at our vintage event. Donít get me wrong, we get a lot of nice cars here, but I did not expect one of these. Itís cool."

On Saturday morning one of the SCCA corner workers was checking out the car as I came out of the motor home with a cup of coffee. He had his morning coffee in hand as he walked around the car, checking every detail from every imaginable angle. I asked Richard what he thought and he summed it up perfectly when he said "It looks like someone took all the best styling features from all the great classic sports cars, put it into a blender, stirred it up and this is what poured out."
