Next year’s Aston Martin Vantage GTE ready for reveal

20 November 2017

Aston Martin is set to reveal its new Vantage GTE, which it hopes to see at the front of its class in the World Endurance Championship.

The company’s outgoing Vantage GTE took the British marque to victory in the GTE Am championship over the weekend. The new car will replace the outgoing model’s naturally aspirated powerplant for the 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 found in the racer’s roadgoing sibling.

Aston’s new GTE will go head to head with some of last year’s contenders, such as Ferrari’s 488 GTE and Ford’s GT GTE as well as BMW’s new M8 GTE, which will be competing in the WEC for the first time.

Aston Martin has revealed that it has already completed two 30-hour tests with the new racer. The first of which was in Andalucia, and did not involve continuous running, while the second test in Navarra was a true endurance simulation, and saw the car running at race speed for 30-hours straight.
