Aston Martin Racing has launched a new Vantage GT4 for 2011. This new Aston Martin Vantage GT4 is closely based on the V8 Vantage road car and the V8 engine takes design inspiration from
Aston Martins V12 Vantage road car. In addition to the engine and aero upgrades, competitors can, for the first time, choose a race-developed Bosch ABS and traction control system. This system has been specifically optimised by Bosch Motorsport for the Aston Martin Vantage GT4 to provide race-enhanced performance in both wet and dry conditions.
Aston Martin Racing has built and sold more than 80 Aston Martin GT4’s to customers around the world in the last two years. In 2010 the Aston Martin GT4 won the European GT4 Cup as well as the GT4 class at the Dubai 24 Hours, the Nürburgring 24 Hours and the Spa 24 hours. The car also has its own one-make series, the Aston Martin GT4 Challenge of Great Britain, which was won in its inaugural year by Chris and Ant Scragg. The new Vantage GT4 will be eligible for this Challenge, as well as the European GT4 Cup and all other series with a GT4 class.
