    Another great cutaway drawing by Tony Matthews, this time of pontoon fender bodied 1958 250 Testa Rossa #0718TR when owned by Brandon Wang, and used for the extremely expensive Chris Nixon book Rivals about the Aston Martin DBR1 and the 250 Testa Rossa 1957 - 1959.

    Some claim the actual remains are in the USA with a mega collector. But what would have been left after the fatal accident, bulldozing into a ravine and decades later disinterrment?

    Looks like 0718TR had a non original radiator fan when Tony did his cutaway drawing.
