It Only Takes 60 Seconds To Build An Aston Martin

It's a time-lapse video, of course.

Did anyone ever say it was easy to build a race car? This time-lapse video might appear to prove it, but that tends to happen when condensing three weeks into 60 seconds. Make no mistake, though, it’s a lot harder than it looks. In this clip the crew at Prodrive, a British racing and engineering group, construct the #98 Aston Martin V8 Vantage GTE in preparation for the FIA 2016 WEC season. The Aston’s most recent available specs regarding its 4.5-liter V8 put it in the 600 horsepower range.

This season, the Aston will be piloted by Mathias Lauda (son of three-time F1 championship winner Niki Lauda), and former F1 driver Pedro Lamy, who scored the first point for a Portuguese driver in a world championship event at the 1995 Australian Grand Prix.
