Aston Martin Racing has taken the covers off the Vantage GT3 and GT4 racecars to be used by customer racing teams. Based on the current GTE-spec model that will compete in the GTE Pro segment, the GT3 and GT4 have been unveiled at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Boasting an AMG-sourced twin-turbo 4,0-litre V8, the Vantage GT3 is set to produce 399 kW and 700 N.m. This power is sent to the rear axle through by a six-speed sequential gearbox by Xtrac.
In GT3 guise, the car tips the scales dry at 1 245 kg thanks to a lightweight aluminium chassis. Other features include a solid roll-cage, Öhlins four-way adjustable dampers, an Alcon motorsport multi-plate clutch and brakes, and Bosch Motorsport ABS.
Although it will be showing its face, the Vantage GT4 will not be seeing any racing action at the event. It will, however, be available for viewing in the Aston Martin Racing Festival paddock. The GT4 will be developed throughout the remainder of 2018 in preparation for homologation and competition by the start of March 2019.
