My hubby’s dad is always been a fan of Aston Martin vehicles. Actually, he got an Aston just last year. The said vehicle has been so noticeable because of its uniquely designed grille… (… looks like a mouth of a fish in the front view! 😀 ) Just like what is written in their homepage, “An Aston Martin combines three important elements: power, beauty and soul. Aston Martins are truly special – they always have been and always will be.”, Aston Martin vehicles is great caricature of modern technology that exudes beauty, elegance, and road-braking performance in one package.Aston Martin has been known in the racing arena for years. It has gathered a lot of triumphs in winning the hearts of every car racer.

For Aston Martin to spice up and add the clamor of the crowd they have introducd a new breed of GT that would surely be the talk of the town when it will be finally released in the automotive scene most especially in the racing arena. In fact, just a few days ago the racing debut of Aston Martin Vantage GT2, the auto maker has released images of the vehicle that are designed to lift the public’s interest a bit more. The Vantage GT2 isn’t quite as sexy as the other Aston Martin models, but it does look threatening in the Gulf colors.

The Vantage GT2 heads to Barcelona, where it will be launched with James Watts Automotive on April 5. The vehicle is designed with American Le Mans Series (ALMS) in mind and has the capacity to burn E85 or a regular racing fuel. The ALMS is trying to utilize as many alternative fuels as possible, and it’s easiest to convert a conventional gas engine to run on E85. The Vantage GT2 is bound to be a favorite of the green movement, since it is designed to run on either standard race fuel or E85 bioethanol.

“The new 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 fuelled version, which will be eligible to compete in an increasing number of series now accommodating this greener fuel, including the American Le Mans Series.”, Robin Brundle, Aston Martin Racing’s new managing director said that.

The V8 engine equipped in the Vantage GT2 is made from aluminum alloy and is based from the design found in the Aston Martin V8 Vantage. The engine can be load up to 4.3 liters of fuel and has an expected output of 480 horsepower, which is a 100 hp improvement over the road car.

You will see Aston Martin as it competes in every GT class for both the European FIA GT series and the ALMS series here in the States. The Vantage GT2 would squarely compete with the admired Porsche 997 GT3 RSR. Also, this coming season Ferrari F430 GT2s and Dodge Viper GTSRs will be gunning along with Vantage GT2.
