In 1949, David Brown had a dream to compete in endurance racing. And 10 years later, this is the car that won the 1959 Nurburgring 1000 KM race. Not only has this car competed in 16 world class races, but it was raced by Roy Salvadori, Stirling Moss, Jack Brabham, and Carroll Shelby. No wonder this car is claimed to be the most important model in Aston-Martin's history. While estimates aren't printed publicly, many estimate the DBR1 to sell for over $20 million. If it does, it will become the most expensive British car sold at auction.
