New Aston Martin Vantage GTE launched

Hot on the heels of the latest Aston Martin Vantage comes this – the Vantage GTE. It's the racing sibling to the new Vantage, bristling with aerodynamic additions and set to race in the Le Mans 24 Hours and World Endurance Championship for the 2018/19 season.

The Vantage GTE has been developed from the road car by Aston Martin Racing, which altered the whole make-up of the road car to get it ready for the track. Aston Martin says that the goals of the car were reliability and ease of control on the limit, boosting its usability for so-called 'gentleman racers' in the amateur GTE-Am class.
