West McLaren-Aston Martin AMR V8 GT3 || ACC Custom Livery Comission

In January I was contacted by the Team ABBY Racing team. They wanted me to make a replica of the McLaren Mercedes West-livery as ran in Formula 1 in the late 90s and early 00s.

They wanted an exact replica of the livery. So, with the exact logo’s that were used on the cars at the time. Which includes the McLaren and Mercedes Benz logos. But, there was a twist.

Instead of creating this livery for a sensible, matching option like the McLaren 720s or the AMG GT3, these madmen and women wanted me to create this livery for the Aston Martin AMR V8 GT3 and the Porsche 991 II GT3 R.

To me, that’s like pasting a Lamborghini logo on a Ferrari. Absolute horror.

Despite their torturous request, they paid me handsomely, so I got to work. The Porsche is still in the works, but the Aston Martin is now ready to be presented as you’ve probably noticed when you saw the video above.

Thankfully for you, I switched the Mercedes Benz branding to Aston Martin branding in the uploaded version, so you don’t have to worry about triggering my OCD when you drive this car.

Original Commission – Team ABBY Racing

As this design was originally commissioned by Team ABBY Racing, they wanted me to create personalized versions for themselves. If you order a commission with me, I will do additional customization for €2 per additional version.

These are the additional variants I made for the team, complete with flags and imitation ‘West’ logos akin to how McLaren would run them in countries where tobacco-sponsorship was banned (‘Mika’ and ‘David’ would replace ‘West’).

As per their request, of course.
