The Racing Group (TRG) has been busying itself developing an Aston Martin Daytona prototype. The California-based TRG team has partnered with Aston Martin Racing to form TRG-AMR North America, LLC. Their mutual goals are paving the way for a very exciting racing circuit.
The V12 Aston Martin Vantage GT3
Kevin Buckler, owner of TRG, described the Aston Martin Daytona prototype as follows: “The V12 engine sounds fantastic, but for what’s being developed, that’s not the exact package we’re looking at. There’s still a lot of work to be done, but the vision we’re aiming towards, if you want to try and picture it, is to have two DP cars coming down the front straight at Daytona that look like a prototype version of the GT3 car.”
Buckler’s statement could point to a V8 Aston Martin racer, though anything is possible during the concepting phases. Aston Martin is engineering a motor that could turn things up a notch and TRG is working closely with a chassis manufacturer to ensure proper proportions. The overall build will have racing first in mind, though they hope for the front to reflect the Aston Martin V12 Vantage appeal. Little else is known at this point about how the Aston Martin Daytona car will actually look and sound, or how many horses the racer will be able to unleash on the track. Both Aston Martin and TRG are dedicated to perfection, so the outcome will likely be a crowd pleaser.
TRG-AMR currently run the following Aston Martin Racing models: Vantage GTE, Vantage GT3 and Vantage GT4
Buckler has expressed his desire to involve Aston Martin in a variety of racing series. Past TRG-AMR entries can be examined in the Pirelli World Challenge series, Grand-Am Rolex series and more. Both Aston Martin V8 and V12 Vantage racers have experience in racing, and a Daytona car would only add to the family.
Is Aston Martin able to dominate in both the luxury car and racing arenas?
