What’s New In Art, Architecture, And Design
From art and jewelry, to wellness spaces, to bold colors, here’s what’s in vogue.
RM Sotheby’s is pleased to announce the sale of the 1963 Aston Martin DP215 Grand Touring Competition Prototype, the pinnacle achievement for Aston Martin’s racing program and the final racing car built by the factory in the era of David Brown.
Ultra-lightweight, with a four-liter version of the DP212 engine and cutting-edge wind tunnel-tested aerodynamics, the car was piloted by American ace driver Phil Hill, a three-time Le Mans-winner and the first ever American Formula 1 World Champion.
The current owners, Neil and Nigel Corner, vintage racing drivers, have perfected the car’s restoration by reuniting DP215 with original engine with which Phil Hill raced at Le Mans.
If you’re headed to RM Sotheby’s 2018 Monterey Auction next month, be sure to see the DP215 as well as an exposition area to experience Curate by Sotheby’s International RealtyTM and immersive Virtual Reality tours.
