Car of the Week #12: Aston Martin Ulster
One of only 21 production Ulsters ever built this particular example of the works racer has competed in over one hundred races throughout its past nine decades, making it one of the most extensively raced Aston Martins in existence.
It’s raced every year since 1935 – aside from the years of WWII – with this two-seater powered by a 1.5-litre engine, allowing it to reach speeds of up to 100mph. Among its incredible racing background, this Ulster has competed at the 1935 Mille Miglia, finished eighth at the 1935 Le Mans 24 Hours and finished first in class at the Targa Abruzzo.
Visitors to Concours of Elegance 2016 will be able to see this Aston Martin – one of the most important pre-war British cars – in the flesh, as it takes to the Quadrangle at Windsor Castle along with 59 other rare cars.
