A LeMans Winning Aston Martin DBR1 is on Sale for $32 Million

In 1959 this Aston Martin DBR1 won the 24 Hours of Le Mans at the hands of Roy Salvadori and Carroll Shelby. That makes it the winningest (yes, that actually is a real word... although our spell checker doesn't seem to think so) Aston Martin race car of all time. While Salvadori and Shelby were behind the wheel of this particular car, the DBR1/2, for its greatest moment, the wheel has also been held by legends like Tony Brooks, Sir Stirling Moss, Maurice Trintignant, Stuart Lewis-Evans, Jack Fairman, and Noel Cunningham-Reid. 

How much does all of this history and pedigree cost? A cool $32 million. This isn't an auction either, if you want to go get your $32 mil out from where it's hidden behind the 1787 Chateau Lafite in your gold-lined wine cellar, you can call up Talacrest and buy it.
