The Aston Martin Vantage GT8, the lightest and most powerful V8 Vantage ever, has finally arrived in the Aston Martin Singapore showroom. The limited edition model Vantage GT8 you see here, is one of only 150 examples produced by Aston Martin worldwide; all of which have already been sold. The car that is on display in the showroom is the one and only unit allocated to Singapore and has been accounted for by a local car collector.
Inspired and influenced by the 2016 Aston Martin V8 Vantage GTE race car, the Vantage GT8 is a true thoroughbred with its dramatically sculpted carbon fibre bodywork shaped by race-bred aerodynamic function. With a super-sharp chassis tuned for track-focused agility, powered by a revised 446PS1 version of Aston Martin’s rousing 4.7-litre V8 and available with a choice of six-speed manual or seven-speed SportshiftTM II paddle-shift transmissions, the Vantage GT8 has unmistakable style, a no-nonsense stance and a driving experience that is sure to thrill.
During the introduction of the new Vantage GT8, Aston Martin CEO Dr Andy Palmer said: “Road cars are our business, but racing is the beating heart of Aston Martin. The Vantage GT8 expresses that combination perfectly: an authentic and unashamedly extreme road car that draws directly from our Le Mans racing programme to amplify the inherent dynamism that has long made the Vantage such a fine sports car. Beautifully engineered and set-up to be equally at home on a fabulous road or a demanding race track, the Vantage GT8 is a driver’s car in the truest sense of the word.”
The Aston Martin Vantage GT8 is currently on display at the Aston Martin Singapore showroom for public viewing.
