Aston Martin working on an extreme V12 Vantage S GT3

Article by Christian A., on October 24, 2014

Aston Martin is currently working on the extreme V12 Vantage S GT3 and the first test mule was spotted on the Nurburgring. OF course, this is not something new as the British carmaker already announced its intentions to build a more extreme version of the V12 Vantage S.

Just like any other vehicle wearing the GT3 designation, the new Aston Martin will be 100 kg lighter than the standard version and as expected, the vehicle will not offer any air conditioning, will come with lighter seats and its interior will be stripped down.

In addition, the V12 Vantage S GT3 will feature carbon fiber body panels as well as lighter magnesium wheels. When it comes to design, the vehicle will get enlarged front and rear fenders as well as a more aggressive body kit.

The 6.0-liter V12 engine will be boosted to around 600 hp but due to the fact that the coupe will be lighter, expect some impressive performances.

And speaking of performances, the V12 Vantage S GT3 will be capable to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in under 4.0 seconds, while top speed will exceed 330 km/h.
