V12 Vantage GT3 racer will be eligible for several racing series including FIA GT3 and ADAC Masters.

Aston Martin Racing has released the specs on the new V12 Vantage GT3 racer.

The 6.0 liter V12 unit on the Vantage GT3 will be tuned to deliver 600 bhp (442 kW / 608 PS) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft) of torque.

The engine is now positioned lower for better weight distribution and the new car also has a shorter wheelbase than its predecessor which improves handling and performance too.

Fitted to the V12 Vantage GT3 as standard equipment are race-ready ABS and Traction Control systems.

The GT3 racer will be qualified for several race series including FIA GT3, ADAC Masters, Nürburgring VLN, Blancpain Endurance Series, British GT, Belcar as well as Open GT.

Testing on the car starts in October with deliveries beginning early next year.

Prices for the V12 Vantage GT3 start at £298,000 (€341,000).
