race car. Aston Martin resorted to extensive use of lightweight materials such as carbon fiber, magnesium, titanium and aluminum, on the outside and on the inside in order to be able to reduce the vehicle weight. The standard version of the Vantage GT3 weighs 1565kg.

During the development of the limited edition, Aston Martin has also introduced a specific aerodynamic package that includes a more focused seven-speed manual automated gear box, wider tracks, new adaptive damping settings and a titanium exhaust system.

Visually the Vantage GT3 is easily distinguished from the Vantage SV12 Vantage SAston Martin V12 Vantage SUnited Kingdom, 2014 > present thanks to the aerodynamic package. The main difference is at the front where a horseshoe-shaped graphism can be found on the hood, which helps with refrigeration and also the airflow over the car. At the rear the highlight goes to the large fixed wing.

To save weight, the Aston Martin used a variety of solutions inside the Vantage GT3. In addition to the carbon fiber center console, carbon fiber seats have manual position adjustment rather than electric. With a sporty look and by no means less luxurious Aston Martin trimmed the cabin in Alcantara and leather, leaving some exposed carbon fiber.
