Ultimate version of the Vantage gets a 592bhp V12, an extensive aerodynamic package and a £250,000 price tag

The Vantage GT3 has been designed from the ground up to offer customers the latest in race-car technology and embraces all the experience Aston Martin Racing has learnt from years of engineering and competing in international sports car racing with the DBR9, DBRS9 and the latest VANTAGE GTE. 

Designed to be the current Aston Martin GT3 car for the next five years, the Vantage GT3 is developed so there are no expensive yearly upgrades with the power of the V12 engine being unlocked when required through Balance of Performance. 

The Vantage GT3 has been designed from the ground up to offer customers the latest in race-car technology and embraces all the experience Aston Martin Racing has learnt from years of engineering and competing in international sports car racing with the DBR9, DBRS9 and the latest VANTAGE GTE.

The Vantage GT3 has a modified version of Aston Martin’s production 6.0 litre V12 engine. The dry-sumped engine produces more than 600 bhp with 700 Nm of torque and its position has been optimised further to improve weight balance. Thanks to this built-in level of performance and the performance balancing in this class, the Vantage GT3 does not require expensive yearly upgrades to maintain its competitiveness.

A carbon fibre propshaft mates the engine to an Xtrac six-speed sequential transmission with semi-automatic paddle shift gear change.

Like all Aston Martin racing cars, the Vantage GT3 uses the Vantage road car's bonded aluminium chassis to create a light and stiff structure. This combined with a shorter wheelbase and lower engine position contribute to enhanced handling and performance. Driveability is enhanced further with the latest race-developed ABS and traction control systems, which are fitted as standard. As such, the gap between pro and am drivers is substantially reduced.

Aston Martin Vantage GT3 Special Edition

Aston Martin revealed the first details of its most potent and uncompromising Vantage to date: the track-inspired Vantage GT3 special edition.

With production strictly limited to just 100 examples, the new model combines all of Aston Martin's learning from its years of sports car competition around the globe to produce its most performance focused road-going Vantage.

Equipped with a new iteration of the brand's 6.0-litre V12 engine which is capable of generating up to 600 PS, the car weighs in at 100kg less than a standard V12 Vantage S.

Comprehensively re-engineered, as well as significantly restyled, the GT3-inspired special edition is lower and wider than any of its siblings in the Vantage family. A broader track - front and rear - brings even more composed cornering thanks to a reduction in lateral load transfer, while the use of Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres provides even more assured handling.

Thoroughly equipped with cutting edge motorsport-inspired features, from the extensive use of carbon fibre inside and out to the track-focused aerodynamics pack - which includes a prominent rear wing and pronounced front splitter - the race-derived new Vantage brings more focused and uncompromising capability and styling to a road-going Aston Martin.

The aerodynamics package in particular has a profound effect, producing significant downforce to provide even greater levels of grip and stability at higher speeds.

Inspired by Aston Martin Racing's successful campaigns, this new GT3-derived Vantage has been designed and engineered exclusively at Aston Martin's Gaydon Headquarters in Warwickshire, England, to be the most overt expression of everything that defines Vantage: an inspirational sports model offering supreme driveability on the road, and uncompromising dynamic performance on track.

New flared carbon fibre front wings, carbon fibre bonnet, a lithium ion race-derived battery, carbon-fibre door casings, optional carbon fibre roof, optional weight-saving polycarbonate rear window and rear quarter windows are just a few of the measures which illustrate the engineers' determination to eliminate mass wherever possible. That determination has paid off, too, as the new car weighs in at only 1,565 kg.

Under the skin lie a number of bespoke engineering upgrades, aside from the new 600 PS V12 engine. Magnesium inlet manifolds with revised geometry, a lightweight magnesium torque tube and a full titanium exhaust system with centre outlets are just a few of the features that underline the rigorous re-engineering of this exclusive new Vantage.

The car's interior is comprehensively reworked, too, with a full carbon fibre centre stack and touch-sensitive control array; race-derived carbon fibre sports seats; Alcantara trim and the option of numerous bespoke features courtesy of the brand's popular personalisation service: Q by Aston Martin.

Announcing the arrival of the Vantage GT3 special edition, Aston Martin CEO Dr Andy Palmer said: "Motorsport is in our blood at Aston Martin. 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."

He added: "The Vantage GT3 special edition is an uncompromising example of our design and engineering expertise and I'm sure the 100 owners who secure one of these cars will savour every second behind the wheel; whether on the road or on the track."

The Vantage GT3 special edition will make its public debut at the 2015 Geneva International Motor Show, with first customer deliveries beginning in the third quarter of 2015.

Aston Martin Vantage GT3 mění název na GT12, jméno se nelíbilo Porsche

Německá a britská značka se dohadují již řadu měsíců, nyní však Aston Martin raději ustoupil. A kromě silničního modelu změní i název závoďáku.

Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3: britská silniční střela krotí kopyta 600 koní

 Aston Martin „vymáčknul z Vantage úplně všechno” novým nastavením všeho možného či karbonem. GT3 vznikne jen sto kusů.

Různých speciálních edic Aston Martinu Vantage očividně není nikdy dost. Není na úrovni Zondy či Veyronu, ale v Ženevě se ukáže v nové a tentokrát skutečně zvláštní a velmi limitovanou edici s názvem GT...
