The Aston Martin DBR22 draws inspiration from the iconic DBR1 and DB3S open-cockpit sports cars. It has been designed in-house at Q by Aston Martin. The car features a completely new body created from a minimal number of body panels. The front grille incorporates a unique carbon fibre design, while the bonnet features a horseshoe vent seen on recent models like the V12 Vantage.
