i know. here's the text that accompanied the pic at astonmartins.com
Aston Martin has just released this Photoshop image of the DBR9 - don't expect the car to look exactly like this as but it may be a reasonable indicator.

The first DBR9 is being prepared now and will compete during 2005 in selected international sports car events, including the Le Mans 24 Hours in June. Three Aston Martin Racing Works teams will then be appointed to compete in major international sports cars series. These will be independent teams each racing two DBR9s with the full factory support of Aston Martin Racing.

Aston Martin Racing will also make a very limited number of DBR9 racing cars available to selected customers. These cars will be prepared to the same specification as the Works cars.

I will be making every effort to get pictures of the race cars later in 2004 and attend as many events as my schedule allows.

I believe that Tucker had headlights that turned with the wheels. I saw something about an old car with that feature on TV last night, and it probably was the Tucker.

The center light on the Tucker turned with the wheels as an "active steerable headlight"

Yes - it came from the announcement that they were working with Prodrive to produce a racecar
