Aston Martin Vantage details:
The Aston Martin Vantage GT3 features a modified version of Aston Martin's production 6. 0litre V12 motor found in the marque's highly acclaimed sports vehicles. The dry-sumped motor is expected to produce 600 bhp with 700 Nm of torque and its position has been optimised further to enhance weight balance. A carbon fibre propshaft mates the motor to a Xtrac 6 speed sequential transmission with semi-automatic paddle shift gear change.
The Aston Martin Vantage GT3 benefits from Aston Martin's V/H architecture philosophy, the modular chassis uses aerospace bonding techniques to create a light and immensely stiff aluminium and composite structure which not only aids handling on Aston Martin's road vehicles but is also an perfect base for competitive race vehicles.
Most exciting of all, are the new aerodynamics, contributing to a muscular and purposeful stance while maintaining the overall beauty of the V12 Aston Martin Vantage. The shorter wheel base and lower motor position over its predecessor will contribute to improved handling and performance. The new vehicle will also offer improved driveability with the latest race-developed ABS and Traction Control systems which are fitted to the V12 Aston Martin Vantage GT3 as traditional.
