Rizk Auto recreation 1957 Aston Martin DBR2

Risk Auto assimilates the best elements of the most seminally beautiful racers of the golden era with the material and manufacturing processes of current aerospace technology. The specialists are meant to transform every journey into a lifestyle; the noise, the vibration and the intimacy of the surroundings are all an affirmation of a life worth living. This yearning for elegance has led us to one of the most inspired designs in the history of the Automobile. To be more precise, we are talking about the 1957 Aston Martin DBR2 Le Mans Race car. The RA specialists have offered the perfect design to accommodate the demands of a 21st century road car. The chassis offers exceptional stiffness, extremely light weight, excellent cabin space, flexibility in adapting multiple engine options and of course, precise dimensional accuracy. The tuner used the well-known ladder type chassis. The main advantages of this type of structure are very low tooling costs and they can be built to good stiffness. The disadvantages are the weight, as they are too heavy an extremely inefficient in packing especially for the occupants of the vehicle. An all Carbon monocoque chassis was the only solution, but the bad part is that it is quite expensive. No other specially made classically designed vehicle in the world has this level of engineering, strength and technology in one package. The energy absorption characteristics of Nomex provide superior crash protection compared to traditional stamped bodies. The thickness also adds to the thermal insulation properties of the panels. Rizk Auto is the first passenger vehicle to use Aerogel as its primary insulating material. The light weight and extraordinary attributes of Aerogel makes the RA the most technically advanced vehicle in the world when it comes to heat insulation.
