The GT8 Shows Us Just How Committed Aston Martin Is To Beating Porsche

Track Car

The GT8 only looks like a Vantage, but comparisons stop once you turn the key.

Aston Martin has some of the most charismatic driver’s cars on the planet. They are arguably the most beautiful physical objects on sale today, with V8 and V12 soundtracks that would make it onto a god's playlist. However, Aston Martin isn’t exactly the first automaker you think of when trying to come up with cars that set blistering lap times. Except it may be now. That’s because the factories at Gaydon, England now churn out the GT8, a lighter and more powerful version of the Vantage.

Now that it is out and roaming the track, Auto Express delves into the nuts and bolts of the machine to see how it stacks up to the competition.
