We watch as Prodrive show you what it looks like to build an Aston Martin V8 Vantage GTE in a minute. Of course, the thing actually took longer than a minute to build; three weeks is closer to the mark. However this footage then, is merely time lapsed to show very, very quickly and broadly how the car looks morphing from skeleton to beautiful racecar.

Starting from just a bare shell, you first notice bits of wiring, suspension, and brakes appear on the chassis. Then the engine eventually arrives, but there’s still a lot of work to do. The builders keep adding body panels and do lots of other wrenching. The process reminds us of building a plastic model kit but with much more expensive consequences if parts go missing.

The number #98 Vantage from Aston Martin Racing will race in this year’s World Endurance Championship. Paul Dalla Lana, Pedro Lamy and Mathias Lauda will get to race this beauty in the AM class.
