2005 Vanwall Racer - Hand-Built, V12, $150,000
Coventry Press Release
25 Feb 2005
British racecar enthusiast Arthur Wonstelhome, who offered high-quality replicars under the brand name Ronart from the mid-1980s through 2002, is now back on track.
When Wonstelhome was forced out of Ronart, he started over and secured permission from Glacier Vanderwell Bearings, a subsidiary of Dana, to use the Vanwall name. Vanwall shot to fame when the team won the 1958 Formula One championship. Wonstelhome's new enterprise, Vanwall Cars, introduced its first new model at a British historic sports car exhibition Friday.
Resembling 1950s F1 racers such as the Maserati 250F, Mercedes-Benz W196 and a hint of its namesake Vanwall, the new GPR V12 is a high-performance, aluminium-bodied, single-seat racing car powered by a 6.0-liter V12 engine. This hand-built car is also street legal and carries a price tag of a mere $150,000.

From WikipediaVanwall was a Formula One motor racing team that competed in the 1950s. Founded by Tony Vandervell, the Vanwall name was derived by combining the name of the team owner with that of his Thinwall bearings produced at the Vandervell Products factory at Acton, London. Originally entering modified Ferraris in non-championship races, Vanwall constructed their first cars to race in the 1954 Formula One season.
