Aston Martin and Toyota CEOs Swap V12 Zagato and LF-A

Aston Martin CEO Ulrich Bez and Toyota’s chief Akio Toyoda have gotten to know each other much better, as the two have meat up on numerous occasions. Besides sharing the iQ platform for the Aston Martin Cygnet, they’ve also contributed to Japan’s earthquake relief efforts.
Both have raced on the Nurburgring for the 24 Hour endurance even in the past, but they’ve now returned to the German venue for the VLN series. However, the video that was released on Youtube shows that Toyoda and Bez swapped their cars - the Aston Martin V12 Vantage and Gazoo Racing Lexus LF-A for the race that took place on October 16th.

“Other company bosses meet on the golf course, we race together,
" commented Bez.
