With the launch of the new Aston Martin Vantage yesterday, Aston Martin Racing have now launched the new 2018 Vantage GTE race car.

This new race car will compete in the FIA World Endurance Championship and will replace their most successful race car the V8 Vantage GTE.

The development car has completed 13,000km of testing.

President of Aston Martin Racing, David King said:

“Motorsport is fundamental to the DNA of Aston Martin and our commitment to the FIA World Endurance Championship is stronger than ever. 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. The team has enjoyed incredible success over recent years with the outgoing V8 Vantage GTE and while this will hold fond memories for me, I can’t wait to see the new car race in anger at Spa next year and continue to write motorsport history”.
