The 24 Hours of Le Mans is this weekend and now there is an all-new livery to look out for. Aston Martin recently unveiled their latest Gulf Livery on the Number 97 Vantage GTE. The car will be driven by Darren Turner, Stefan Mucke and Peter Dumbreck.

The new take on the iconic livery was created by Jonathan Wesley, who said “I was just sketching a few thoughts out and I liked the idea of the car being a different colour on both sides. I thought about the Gulf corporate colours – dark blue, light blue, orange and white – and I came up with the idea of ‘daylight to dusk’, which to me is the most exciting part of the race.”

Wesley’s design was chosen in a Gulf contest, and as a result, he will be able to see his winning design compete in the 90th 24 Hours of Le Mans as a VIP guest. Four other Vantage GTEs will be competing in the historic race, but only one will be wearing Wesley’s winning design.
