New Vantage GT3 And GT4 Race Cars In The Works At Aston Martin Racing

Aston Martin Racing (AMR) has been Aston Martin’s race car laboratory since 2004, building and curating race cars for the British manufacturer’s factory team, but also for partner and customer teams.

Today, AMR announces the release of a new generation of Vantage GT3 and GT4 race cars that will be ready to hit the track prior to the 2019 race season.

The Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3 and the V8 Vantage GT4 are being replaced by new Vantage GT3 and GT4 generations that will feature race-prepped variants of the 4.0-litre V8 twin-turbocharged engine, but the firm also specifies that the Vantage GT3 will use many of the design characteristics developed for the Vantage GTE.

It takes a special kind of team (and race budget) to run one of these unique pieces of engineering. Historically, only 42 V12 Vantage GT3s were built since the introduction of the model. With an overall successful career on the track, the V12 Vantage GT3 won three British GT Championships, the 2017 Blancpain GT Series Endurance Cup ProAM title and the Blancpain GT Asian Series. As for the GT4, it took the British GT Championship wins in 2014 and 2015 as well as the North European GT4 ProAm title in 2016. A total of 124 units were built.
