With the GT3, 2016 Aston Martin Vantage GT3 takes a new step in its mission to compete with the big boy of the industry. Sure, with its limited finances and resources, it can simply do so much, but this is absolutely a step in the correct direction. It’s a real powerful vehicle with stunning interiors and exterior.
Exterior and Interior
Inside the cabin, the Vantage GT3 Special Edition is not fairly all race cars; however it does take a few bits plus pieces from the racing society. Items like the carbon-fiber front seats plus center stack, and an Alcantara-wrapped navigation wheel are all weight-saving matter typically seen in track-exclusive model.
The Vantage GT3 is regarding as close as you could get to an actual race car as one will expect from a road-going car. Its body is decorated in all the gear you would expect to see on a racer, but it is all legal for street. The most apparent of additions are the huge rear spoiler and the front splitter that help adhere the coupe to the asphalt. Weight savings to the tune of 100 kg is also a advantage of the GT3 Special Edition package. To attain this huge weight loss, Aston installs a carbon-fiber hood, front wings plus door casings.
Engine and Mileage Details
On top of the additional oomph, the GT3’s power train also has some lighten work, including magnesium inlet manifold, a magnesium driveshaft, as well as titanium exhaust scheme with center outlets.
Though Aston Martin did not reveal performance number for this special edition, I can estimate. The standard V12 Vantage S hits 60 mph in 3.7 second and tops out at about 205 mph. With the reduced weight as well as upped power, I might see a 3.5-second sprint time. Though, with the added down force and its associated drag, probability is that the top speed would actually fall to about the 200 mph mark.
2016 Aston Martin Vantage GT3 Price and Release Date
Given Aston Martin would build only 100 example of this beauty, I can merely guess that it will be super-expensive plus super-exclusive. Chances are, if you are calling a loan business now to get prequalified for the GT3 Special Edition, you probable can’t afford this and Aston likely will not sell it to you.
To call the 2016 Aston Martin Vantage GT3 anything other than an overwhelming and refreshing addition to the British automaker’s schedule would be unfair. With the entire struggle it has had recently, it is nice to see the brand actually deliver somewhat special.
