Aston Martin: Vantage GT2 Race Car Revealed

Aston Martin Racing has revealed the first impressions of its new Vantage GT2 racing car that is based on the Aston Martin Vantage V8 road car. For the first time, Aston Martin Racing is designing this car to run on either standard race fuel or E85 bio-ethanol (where regulations allow). In 2007, Aston Martin Racing had converted a standard DBRS9 to run on E85. With the Vantage GT2 race car, the British firm will become the only manufacturer to offer cars in every GT racing category: GT1 – DBR9; GT2 – Vantage GT2; GT3 – DBRS9; GT4 – Vantage N24. -Continued after the jump

Robin Brundle, Aston Martin Racing’s new managing director, said: “The new Vantage GT2 completes our product portfolio for 2008 with competitive cars now available in every category. Thanks to our experience with the DBRS9, we have been able to develop a bio-ethanol fuelled version, which will be eligible to compete in an increasing number of series now accommodating this greener fuel, including the American Le Mans Series.”
