The Aston Martin DP215 was a prototype sports car built by Aston
Martin for grand touring-style racing in 1963. It was built alongside
the similar DP214, both of which replaced the previous DP212. Only
a single example was built.
Again using a DB4 GT chassis, the DP215 was stylistically similar
to the DP214, but had the advantage of not only being slightly lighter,
but also using the larger 4.0 litre 6 cylinder engine which had
previously powered DP212. Even though the car was also intended
to carry the 5-litre V8 engine, which later appeared in the Lola
Aston T70 Mk III. Even so with this increased power and decreased
weight, the DP215 was seen as better suited to Le Mans' Mulsannes
straight than the DP214.
