The new Vantage GT2 racing car

Aston Martin Racing has exposed the first impersonation of its new Vantage GT2 racing car. Vantage GT2 is based on the V8 engined Aston Martin Vantage road car. With this new Aston Martin is the only manufacturer to offer cars in every GT racing category: GT1 - DBR9; GT2 - Vantage GT2; GT3 - DBRS9; GT4 - Vantage N24.

Aston Martin Racing build this car to run on either standard race fuel or E85 bio-ethanol. In 2007, Aston Martin Racing profitably transformed a standard DBRS9 to run on E85.

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."

The threatening GT2 car will be fully unveiled 10-13 January 2008 in Birmingham at the Autosport International show.
