The359 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Aston Martin AMR1

Five cars built in total, only four remain.

AMR1 #01
* Destroyed in pre-season test. This led to AM being fined for not having 2 cars at Suzuka

AMR1 #02
* Ran Dijon and Le Mans

AMR1 #03
* Ran Le Mans only, retained as a T-car

AMR1 #04
* Ran Brands Hatch (4th place), Nurburgring, Donington, and Spa

AMR1 #05
* Built with the "Version 2" 6.3L V8 instead of the 6.0L
* Ran Donington, Spa, and Mexico

Apparently three out of the four remaining cars is still run nowadays.

Just to add more to this thread, if I remember correctly, the team first used a T-car at Brands, and it appeared to be chassis 2, with yellow sunstrip. The same T-car was used at Donington too, and possibly the Nurburgring.

According to a Protech team member at the Brands Gp C race in Jun 07 there were never more than two cars at any race in 1989 (including T-car), but I do have a note of a T-car being used at Spa, when -05 (18-Dickens/Redman) and -04 (19 - Leslie/Roe) were the race cars.

Finally, I saw a car, advertised as 'Chassis 7', on sale circa 1991. I'm sure it was built around a spare tub, and if so, was 'Chassis 6' also built?

The initial T-car at Brands Hatch from what I can see was #03, while #04 raced. #2 was never used after Le Mans.

Meanwhile, at Donington, there were in fact three cars present (#03, #04, and #05):

Glad my photos went to good use (though the T-car shot's not mine).
