Aston Martin Racing has revealed a computer made picture of its new GT2 racing car. It will be called the Vantage GT2. It’s based on the Vantage V8 road car. By introducing the new car Aston Martin will be the only manufacturer to offer cars in every GT racing category: GT1 – DBR9; GT2 – Vantage GT2; GT3 – DBRS9; GT4 – Vantage N24.
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). Robin Brundle, Aston Martin Racing’s 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.”
