You won't see them in action until next year, but they're still fun to look at.

While the car it's based on, the Aston Martin Vantage GTE, will be racing at Le Mans this weekend, fans of the GT3 and GT4 will have to wait until March of next year to see it hustling through corners.

The GT4, on the other hand, will be a car for amateur racers only.

It, too, is still in development and won't see the light of day until 2019.

While the two are based on the same road car, the GT4 class is a fair bit slower, as it gives amateurs the base skills necessary to start moving up.
