British automaker Aston Martin
has just revealed their new Vantage GT3, which will be the basis for their customer motorsport business next year. According to U.K. publication Autocar, it takes cues from the DBRS9 and features a modified version of the 6.0-liter V12, the same engine that powers the automaker's V12 road cars. The new GT3 engine will likely produce around 600hp and 500 lb-ft of torque. It will be mated to a semi-automatic Xtrac six-speed sequential paddleshift gearbox.
