Aston Martin Vantage GT3, the most potent and hard-core version of the Vantage till date

Meet the brand new limited edition Aston Martin Vantage GT3, the track-focused, most potent and uncompromising Vantage to date. In the recent few years, we have seen quite a few versions of the Aston Martin, not that we are complaining, however, the Vantage GT3 takes hooliganism to a whole new level. Envisioned as a street-legal beast that lies somewhere between its racing cars and the stunning luxury GT models, the Vantage GT3 arrives with a host of key upgrades to make it lighter, more powerful and more hard-core than its siblings. “Motorsport is in our blood at Aston Martin,” said Aston Martin CEO, Dr. Andy Palmer. “The Vantage is the car we campaign in top level sports car racing around the world and so it seems only fitting that we offer an exclusive, limited edition Vantage that expertly fuses our motorsport know-how with our road car prowess.”

The company’s ubiquitous 6.0-litre V12’s power output is bumped up from 565bhp to a few short of 600. A more extreme aero kit, also made of carbon fiber, includes a splitter protruding out from under the nose and a big rear wing. To make the aggressive Aston Martin even more track-worthy, the vehicle’s track in the front and rear has been widened and shod with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. The Aston Martin Vantage GT3 will debut at the next month’s Geneva Motor Show. Only 100 examples of this car will be created and each will cost around $383,000.
