Inspired by our rich racing pedigree, Vantage GT is the most dramatic expression of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage ever created. We took the beauty, dynamics and athleticism of our iconic sports car and produced a unique and compelling special edition across five unique exterior specifications.
Motorsport has always been at the very core of Aston Martin. Competition accelerates evolution, introduces new technologies and ensures our road cars are as durable as they are thrilling.
Success in the highly competitive World Endurance Championship with the V8 Vantage GTE and a return in 2014 to Daytona for the 52nd running of the 24 hour race reaffirm Aston Martins commitment to taking on the toughest competition.
Making an Entrance
Dramatic colors. Intense styling. Vantage GT celebrates our heritage with a playful twist. With an audacious side graphic and optional GT Graphics Pack inspired by our GT4 racecars Vantage GT is styled to evoke the drama and intensity of the racetrack.
Grille surround, mirror caps, rear diffuser blade and, on Coupe, roofline are adorned with contrasting colors based on a chosen exterior color scheme. Sporting brake caliper colors are available to add further visual distinction. Available in five color combinations within both Coupe and Roadster formats, Vantage GT is simply unmissable.
One Special Edition Five Unique Treatments
Each of the five eye-catching exterior paint colors has been designed to incorporate side vinyl and optional GT Graphics Pack adding further color and personality. Inspired by cars from our motorsport and design heritage, including the legendary DBR1 and CC100 speedster concept, each combination represents a bold design statement. Whether its the stunning Alloro Green with White side vinyl and Yellow graphics pack or brooding Jet Black with Silver side vinyl and Gray graphics pack, GT isnt just a special edition, its your special edition.
Unmistakably Aston Martin, striking Alloro Green with yellow accents captures 100 years of Aston Martin racing success at a single glance and echoes the stunning CC100 speedster concept.
The magnificent 4.7liter V8 unit which sits at the heart of Vantage GT produces 430bhp with searing performance and a defined sense of purpose. Positioned as low as possible to improve cornering and stability, this same V8 engine powers all our GTE and GT4 race cars with only minimal specification changes.
For a truly nimble sports car experience comes the choice between six-speed manual gearbox or paddle-operated seven-speed Sportshift II automated manual transmission. So whether purist, or motorsport thrill-seeker Vantage GT fits to your life.
