The new Vantage might just be the best Aston Martin ever

  • Meet the world-eater new Aston Martin Racing Vantage GTE revealed

That motive force is delivered to the back of the vehicle via a rear-mounted ZF 8-speed automatic transmission with adaptive shift. Set low and as far back in the chassis as possible for optimal centre-of-gravity and ideal 50:50 weight distribution, the high performance, and high efficiency engine will do the 0-100 km/h 3.6 seconds, and keeps the fun going until 310 km/h. The existing generation has been well received and now Aston has taken the wraps off the newest iteration of the Vantage.

Aston Martin says it paid a lot of attention to aerodynamics, with the Vantage's front splitter directing airflow underneath the auto, while a system of fences channels cooling air where it is needed while also feeding clean airflow to the rear diffuser. That's what James Bond drives; that's the one that everyone points to as one of the most handsome cars in the world, and that's the one that's easy to keep track of, with generations named DB1, DB2, DB4 and so on to DB11. It comes packed with more power, more tech, and more luxury than ever before. Motorsport diffusers are a bit more hardcore than your average car's diffuser, and that's pretty damn evident here - the thing sticks out for days behind the rear bumper.

The new V8 Vantage has some Vulcan styling in the front with a wide-open grille that looks suspiciously like the Aston Martin logo upside down. He added, "This is a golden era for GT racing and today's launch of the new Vantage GTE wil ensure that Aston Martin Racing remains at the forefront of the world's greatest endurance series".

As the name suggests, the new Vantage will be competing in the GTE Pro segment of the WEC season, and has a hard act to follow after its V8 Vantage GTE predecessor. Being an Aston Martin model, it costs $150,000. The "wow" factor comes from the truly gargantuan carbonfibre rear splitter that sticks out more than a foot from the back of the auto.
