Aston Martin unveils today the new Vantage GTE, a racing model based on the GT2 version prepared to compete next month at the 12 Hours of Sebring but also at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The British racing car is powered by a modified 4.5-liter V8 engine which benefits from new cylinder heads, valves and camshafts.
The V8 engine is linked to a six-speed sequential transmission while a new racing exhaust system improves the performance as well.
“The Vantage GTE is a development of the Vantage GT2, with significant improvements to all areas including the engine, drivetrain and suspension,” adds the British car maker.
The company opted for a lightweight carbon fiber body kit including new front and rear bumpers, splitter, rear diffuser and wing but also a high performance Brembo braking system. An adjustable coil-over suspension along with a roll cage for improved safety is available as well.
Darren Turner (GBR), Stefan Mücke (D) and Adrian Fernandez (MX) will be the drivers behind the steering wheel of the new Vantage GTE.
