Aston Martin Racing has revealed the first impression of its new GT2 racing car.Known as the Vantage GT2, the new car is based on the V8-engined Aston Martin Vantage road car.
The new car will mean Aston Martin is the only manufacturer to offer cars in every GT racing category: GT1 - DBR9; GT2 - Vantage GT2; GT3 - DBRS9; GT4 - Vantage N24.
For the first time, Aston Martin Racing is designing this car to run on either race fuel or E85 bio-ethanol (where regulations allow).
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 ethanol 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."
