“The Vanwall story is untold to many, but it is a great British tale of innovation and achievement and shows what happens when the right team come together and push themselves fearlessly to reach a clearly defined goal.
“On this anniversary, we think the time is right to celebrate this great British story of success. Faithfully recreating the iconic 1958 championship-winning car with six 100 per cent accurate and authentic continuation cars is a fitting tribute to their historic success.
“The DNA that made those cars so successful also serves as an inspiring foundation for the future of the Vanwall marque, which I look forward to sharing in due course.”
Sixty two years on from its F1 title triumph, the company announced six continuation cars would be built in collaboration with historic racing experts Hall and Hall.
Five of the six cars will be offered for sale, with one forming part of the Vanwall Historic Racing Team.
“I can still remember watching the Vanwalls at Aintree in ’57 when I was a boy and had the pleasure of sitting in one at Goodwood,” Andrew Garner, chairman of Vanwall Group said.
“I drove at all the major circuits in a Cooper T51 for many wonderful years but the Vanwall is the car I coveted. These cars will be fully race eligible and in the right hands will be unbeatable, repeating Tony Vandervell’s mission to beat the red cars!”
