Aston Martin’s new Vantage GT race car seems really angry
Aston Martin is taking orders for its new 2019 Vantage GT3 and GT4 race cars for customer teams. Both versions will feature versions of Aston’s 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8. Both will be based on the GTE Vantage. It is set to debut at the FIA World Endurance Championship at Spa-Francorchamps this weekend.
The new GTs will use what Aston’s learned over the past 18 months on the GTE car, and by March of next year, it will be homologated and ready to race.
The last version of the GT3 housed Aston’s V12
Forty-two were built and 37 were sold. Those GT3s won three British GT Championships. The 2017 Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup ProAM title and the Blancpain GT Asian Series. The last GT4 took wins in 2014 and 2015 and the North European GT4 ProAm title in 2016.
“We told the clients who first purchased our GT3 cars seven years ago, that they would be buying a car that would be capable of winning races for years to come,” said Aston Martin Racing managing director John Gaw. “This year, we have already proved that with the Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3’s successes in the British GT Championship. I expect the new GT3 and GT4 to be just as competitive as the cars they are replacing and to remain so for a similar period of time.”
