The commitment of Aston Martin, with the WEC is undeniable. As well demonstrated by their presence at the event since its inception in 2012 and its commitment to continue in the Endurance World at least until 2021. A long career in the championship, which will be supported by the development of a new Aston Martin GTE, as confirmed by John Gaw, the Head of Aston Martin Racing. This new vehicle will come to the class LMGTE-Pro in the season 2018, ten years after the premiere of the first versions competitive the Aston Martin Vantage. In this aspect, AMR does not contemplate resorting to hybrid technology in the short term.
at the moment there are few data about the new Aston Martin GTE. Input, it is difficult to say the vehicle used by the british firm as the basis for its new car for the WEC. If you look at their model of street, its two latest vehicles and mass production are the Aston Martin Vanquish and the DB11, the latter being the most logical would be to use level of marketing for its recent launch in 2016. It’s not even clear the engine that could be used, since the brand is torn between the V8 Twin-Turbo AMG or the V12 biturbo engine of 5.2 liters that uses the Vantage GT3.
sure, Aston Martin is already working on the next generation of the Vantage GTE, but by the time the department led by John Gaw maintains almost all the details of your project secret. However, there is a lot at stake given the increasing competition out there in the class LMGTE-Pro. The Ford GT and Ferrari 488, which will live its third year of life and that they can receive a kit ‘evo’ to remain at the top, adds the Porsche 911 RSR with central engine that made its debut in 2017 and the future BMW M8 GTE that will hit the circuits in 2018.
