The new Vantage GT3 and the Vantage GT4 by Aston Marting racing has been revealed at the 86th 24 Hours of Le Mans. The Vantage GT3 makes its racing debut in the Michelin Aston Martin Racing Le Mans Festival this weekend. Aston Martin Racing driver Ross Gunn drove the new Vantage GT3 for the first time on the track on 14 June.

The cars are powered by the existing 4.0-litre turbocharged V8 engine optimised by Aston Martin Racing. The Vantage GT3 produces around 535bhp of power and 700Nm of torque. The car is reportedly built using lightweight aluminium chassis, a steel roll-cage, an Xtrac six-speed sequential gearbox, an Alcon motorsport multi-plate clutch, Ohlins four-way adjustable dampers and Alcon brakes and Bosch Motorsport ABS. The company claims that the vehicle weighs about 1245kgs. Currently still under development, the GT3 will be homologated on 1 March, 2019 and will be offered as a replacement to the V12 Vantage GT3.

The new Vantage GT4 will be on display throughout in the Aston Martin Racing Festival Race paddock to offer potential customers and race fans a first glimpse of the marque’s new challenger. Along with the Vantage GT3, it will remain in development throughout 2018 and this is also set to be homologated for competition from 1 March 2019.

Speaking on the occasion, David King, Vice President and Chief Special Operations Officer, said, “The Aston Martin Vantage GT3 is a worthy successor to the V12 Vantage GT3 and represents the core future of our customer racing programme. With the continued growth of GT racing in general and the GT3 category in particular, this new car and its Vantage GT4 brother will lead our expansion in the GT markets around the globe and particular target areas of the US and Asia. We’ve already seen a high level of interest from potential customers and we only expect that to grow as the car evolves closer to its homologation date."
