Aston Martin Vantage GT2





 

The first shot of Aston Martin Vantage GT2 car had been revealed by Aston Martin Racing.

In 2007, Aston Martin Racing successfully converted a standard DBRS9 to run on E85. Tat’s why the Aston Martin Vantage GT2 car is designing to run on standard race fuel or E85 bio-ethanol.


Robin Brundle, Aston Martin Racing managing director, said: “The Aston Martin Vantage GT2 completes our product portfolio for 2008 with competitive cars now available in every category. Thanks to our experience with the DBRS9, we have been able to develop a bio-ethanol fueled version, which will be eligible to compete in an increasing number of series now accommodating this greener fuel, including the American Le Mans Series.”


Aston Martin chairman, David Richards, will announcing Aston Martin Racing’s 2008 plans on Thursday 10 January at 10.45 am, at the Autosport International Show.
