Aston Martin Vantage GT3: World exclusive first look

Automobiles
This is the least Aston Martin vantagy Vantage you're ever likely to see, and you're not likely to see many of these either, as there will only be 100 of them. Welcome to the Vantage GT Three, the most extreme small Aston ever to grace the road. Before we get to the looks, let's talk of vital statistics. This thing kicks out 592 break horsepower, and 460 pound foot. It's also up to 100 kilos lighter than your common old garden normal Vantage. Aston Martin said it's here to bridge the gap between the road and the track, where its GT racers have been kicking ****. For a number of years. However if it is going to bring some track magic to the road it needs to be somewhere in the region of extreme. Having had a look at it I think that fits the bill. The engine, a six liter V12, has been extensively fiddled with. It's now full of magnesium. The inlet manifold and torque tube for example are made of the stuff. [MUSIC] While the [UNKNOWN] mounted exhaust is made of titanium. That's the grunt taking care of, but to get more performance you need less. As such, Aster's engineers have replaced things that were heavy with things that are light. For example, the entire body but the doors is carbon fiber. You can also expect a carbon fiber roof. On top of that, you can have a lightweight waste-derived lithium ion battery. But to show just how far the featherweight nerdery goes, you can expect polycarbon rear three quarters and rear window. If you go the full chapman with your gt three vantage, it will weigh just fifteen sixty five kilos. By comparison. The Jag S5R weighs 1,650. There's a reworked interior with carbon fiber everywhere, even if the seats. And a touch sensitive control array. You can expect some touches from Austin's very own Q division as well. You may be wondering about the arrow. Well Austin's added that to prove its track credentials. As such it ha the big, some may say silly, wing. A giant chin spoiler. and many additions over the standard car. As such they say that it has twice the arrow load of a Vantage GT 4, and an arrow load seven times that of a standard V12 Vantage S. They say it makes the car more stable. When in neutral at high speeds, but what does that mean for us mere mortals? It'll be shutting fast, that's what. The big numbers for it, the important bit, haven't been 100% finalized, but. Aston estimates it'll do the naught to 60 run in 3.5 seconds which makes it the second fastest accelerating Aston after the One-77 hypercar, and thanks to its rather race spec arrow, its top speed is 185 miles an hour. Yes, that's mildly slower than the 200 mile an hour plus V12 Vantage S. But let's consider what kind of car the standard one is. A fast, comfortable slice of old school mentalness. The type of thing you can drive till the tank's empty and get out feeling fresh. The GT3 though, is a far more hard core affair. It's noisier, harder riding, probably more twitchy. It's designed. For the track, not for crushing consonants. This thing is to get you around a track as fast and as efficiently as possible. This is more of a racer than a traditional Aston Martin. Personally, I think that's a good thing. Why not add some more anger and fire into the mix. If you want one, it'll set you back a quarter of a million pounds and your car will be delivered. In the autumn.
