British automaker Aston Martin has introduced the Vantage GT3 special edition at Geneva Motor Show this week, with production of the lighter, restyled sports car limited to 100 cars.
The car will not be available in the U.S. or China, according to Aston Martin, which said customer deliveries were planned for third quarter 2015.
The track-to-road GT3 is powered by a 6.0-liter V-12 engine that produces 591 horsepower and the car weighs around 3,450 lbs – 220 lbs less than its sibling V-12 Vantage S and sits lower and wider than the rest of the Vantage line-up.
The Aston Martin Vantage GT3’s interior features a reworked carbon fiber dashboard and touch-sensitive control input. The sporty car rides on Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires for better handling.
The carbon fiber use is extensive in the exterior in the so-called “track-focused aerodynamics pack” that includes a rear wing and front splitter derived from the race track. The Aston Martin Vantage GT3 was engineered at Aston Martin’s Gaydon headquarters in Warwickshire, England.
