The Aston Martin Vantage GT8 is a radical road going tribute that celebrates the Vantage’s 12 years of success both on the road and on the track. The V8 based Aston Vantage GTE was extremely successful and won many titles for Aston Martin although technically it was outdated by the Ferraris, Fords, Porsches and Corvettes. In spite of this it still managed to win the 2016 FIA WEC drivers’ title and Le Mans 24h in 2017. The GT8 aimed to be very much an exciting driver focused car coming directly from Aston Martin’s racing programme.
Production was limited to only 150 cars built to very special specifications. The Vantage was turned into a pure « race car » for the road with its weight trimmed by more than 100kg achieved by the extensive use of magnesium for the rims, titanium for the exhaust, carbon fibre for the body and reduced insulation. The engine was uprated to 446 PS but a lot of attention was given to the aerodynamics, suspension and brakes to make it an extremely efficient and rewarding driver’s car.
Moreover one very surprising feature was the possibility to order it with a stunning manual 6 speed gearbox.
The result is what Aston claims to be the most track-focused, street-legal Vantage chassis ever, including the GT12.
