“By focusing on weight savings and aerodynamics, we’ve taken the V8 Vantage to an entirely different level of agility and aggression” Director of Special Projects and Motorsport, David King- AM V8 GT8.
The most extreme V8 Vantage ever built- a limited edition road-going version of Aston's GTE racer, it was little wonder that all 150 GT8’s sold worldwide before launch in 2016.
An old-skool thriller the GT8 was built to celebrate Aston Martin’s storied career at Le Mans and features a fire breathing 328kw 4.7 litre V8, its body is made entirely of carbon, the rear screen and windows are polycarbonate, there’s 10 more horses than the Vantage S and it weighs 100 kg’s less than any Vantage before it.
This stunning and super rare GT8 is a fully loaded 2016 Aston Martin GT8 Aero Pack, travelled just 3,000 kilometres.
Ordered in the Hero colour combination of Sterling Green with Lime accents and optioned to extract everything this thrilling package can offer this car features:
• 7 speed Sportshift II paddle-shift transmission
• Titanium Sports Exhaust with Black tailpipes
• Aero Pack = large rear wing and corner elements to the front splitter
• 7 Spoke Magnesium Centre-Lock Wheels in Satin Black
• Carbon Front Grille
• Reverse Camera
• Steering Wheel Tech Pack
• Crystal Key
• Crystal Interior Switches
One of the most striking features of the car is the cutaway front wheel arch, which mimics that of the GTE racer and the “Sport” button for a sharper throttle map and slightly more noisy exhaust means you could enjoy the GT8 enormously just sitting in it and blipping the accelerator.
Racing, they say, improves the breed. Well, Aston Martin has lapped plenty of circuits, and this ultimate V8 Vantage GT8 is the best yet from a manufacturer with a trophy cabinet other can only dream of.
Recently serviced by the factory and available with its build sheet and all leather-bound manuals this very rare Aston Martin GT8 manages to hold a rarefied air of collectability and totally engaging driveability.
