The Aston Martin Vantage GTE is derived from the new Vantage road car, the second sports car to emerge from the company’s ‘Second Century Plan’. Developed in tandem with the road car by the Prodrive-run Aston Martin Racing team, the Vantage GTE competes in the 2018/19 FIA World Endurance Championship Super Season.
Based on the same lightweight aluminium chassis as the road-going Vantage, the car features an AMG-derived 4-0-litre turbocharged V8 engine, developed and optimised by Aston Martin Racing to be competitive in world class GT competition. The Vantage GTE uses a six-speed sequential Xtrac transmission, Ohlins 5-way adjustable dampers, Alcon brakes and runs on Michelin tyres.
