Following Aston Martin's racing efforts as an engine supplier for Nimrod Racing and EMKA Racing in the early 1980s, it was decided that Aston Martin would attempt to create their own car for the World Sports Prototype Championship. Thus in late 1987 a partnership between Aston Martin and Scottish racing firm Ecurie Ecosse would be formed, creating a new company known as Proteus Technology Ltd.. The team would develop and run the AMR1 project, competing for the first time during the 1989 season.
Richard Williams was named as the team's manager. With him, Max Boxstrom would be the lead designer and Reeves Callaway, of Callaway Cars Incorporated, would build the engine. The chassis and bodywork designed by Boxstrom would be built by British firm Courtaulds. For the engine, Callaway would use 5.3L V8 units from the newly launched Aston Martin Virage, ending up with a 600 hp (450 kW) 6.0L engine known as the RDP87. With this combination, a total of five AMR1 chassis would be finished in early 1989. For more information please click here.
