Chassis: VW11
As chassis VW5, this was one of the new cars built by the Vanwall for the 1957 season. That year, Stirling Moss drove it to two wins, while in 1958 Tony Brooks scored two wins in VW5 and Stirling Moss also added a further victory to this car's tally. For the 1959 season, it was further upgraded and renumbered VW11. In this guise it was raced into the 1960 season by Tony Brooks. Along with all other cars that remained in the Vandervell stable, it was eventually sold to Tom Wheatcroft for the Donington Grand Prix Collection. It was then sold to the United States to join what is today known as the Revs Institute collection. The car still retains its original but very fragile magnesium bodywork. When used in anger, it is usually fitted with an identical aluminium body to preserve the original. Maintained to full running order, it has been regularly raced and demonstrated by the likes of Brian Redman.
