Aston Martin’s race inspired supercar, the limited edition Vantage GT8.
and influenced by the V8 Vantage GTE race car, the GT8 is the lightest
and most powerful V8 Vantage ever. In addition to the dramatically
sculpted, mostly carbon fibre bodywork and revised performance
orientated chassis, the 4.7 litre V8 engine has been upgraded to produce
440bhp. The GT8 was available with either the 6-speed manual or
Sportshift III gearbox. This combined with the dramatic weight saving of
100 kg, the Vantage GT8 boasts some very impressive performance numbers
including 4.4sec 0-60mph and a top speed of 190mph.
Limited to just 150 cars worldwide, predictably all had sold out shortly after being announced in 2016.
Much admired by motoring journalists and road testers alike, the profile of this model was further cemented by Aston Martin securing class victory at the gruelling Nurburgring 24 Hours in 2017 in a ‘close to production’ specification Vantage GT8.
The GT8 we are most excited to offer, is finished in the ‘Halo’ colour scheme of Sterling Green with Lime Green accents, resembling the Aston Martin Racing cars. The lightweight interior combines luxury fitments with carbon fibre and pure black alcantara highlighted with lime green stitching. This manual transmission example is very highly specified, has covered only delivery mileage and is therefore offered in ‘as new’ condition. Full details can be found on our Cars Sales page.
