A brief look at the Aston Martin Nimrod

A couple very brief videos of the Aston Martin Nimrod in action.  This car raced in Group C between 1982 and ’84 if memory serves me right.  Here is one video of the Nimrod doing demo laps at the Brands Hatch circuit in Kent, England, during the Aston Martin centenary celebration, from 2013 or so.

Here too, is a brief video of the Nimrod, but the beast is asleep.  It is being rolled into position for display at the Aston Martin celebration at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, alongside it’s predecessors and successors including a DBR1 which won at the 1959 24 Hours of Le Mans, and a modern, FIA World Endurance Championship, LM GTE Aston Martin Vantage.
