Aston Martin Vantage GTE race auto revealed

Is the new Vantage the best Aston Martin ever?

And while we're not aware of the test car's exact goal, this sighting makes for a brilliant opportunity to remind you of the rumors that talk about the future of the 2019 Aston Martin Vantage. The new Vantage is powered by a 4.0 litre V8 that produces over 500 horsepower (510 PS) and 685 Nm of torque.

It replaces the current Vantage that has been around since 2005.

Even when Aston Martin has been in dire financial straits, it has always somehow managed to build cars of such form-follows-function beauty that owners were more than willing to turn a blind eye to shortcomings in many other areas.

Aston Martin Racing bid farewell to the Vantage GTE that had raced in the WEC since the start of 2012 at last weekend's 6 Hours of Bahrain, having clinched a maiden Le Mans victory back in June.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2 Starck Edition launched: Price, specs and more
In the camera department, Xiaomi Mi 7 is rumored to feature a dual-camera setup with a pair of 16-megapixel sensors. After the release of the new Xiaomi Mi 7 will cost about 25000-28000 rubles in the minimum configuration.

Aston Martin's contribution to this national output remains small, with 3300 cars produced in the year to date, but it represents a growth in production of 65% compared with the same period in 2016. The team is working with new technical partners: Alcon for the brakes, Ohlins for the suspension and Michelin for a bespoke tyre programme. In addition, AMR has recruited ex-GP2 race victor and now Formula E racer Alex Lynn.

Lynn joins the existing four-driver roster of Darren Turner, Jonny Adam, Nicki Thiim and Marco Sørensen, with further announcements set to follow.

David King, president of Aston Martin Racing, said: "Motorsport is fundamental to the DNA of Aston Martin and our commitment to the FIA World Endurance Championship is stronger than ever".

AML has done a decent job of letting you spec up a lot of detail on the new Vantage Configurator, with plenty of options to choose from, including a new palette including very "un-Aston" "in yer face" colours. We've spent every second optimising the design right until the build of our test vehicle, which has paid dividends during our current testing schedule.
