Aston Martin unveils three new jewels in the crown

Aston Martin has taken the unprecedented step of unveiling three cars on the same day, with all of them representing the racing heart of the British manufacturer, and its commitment to integrating motorsport tech into its high-performance road cars.

The trio included the marque’s AMR24 Formula 1 challenger, which first touched the tarmac at the home of British motorsport, and the new Vantage; the quintessential Aston Martin sports car, and the most driver focused and fastest version in the nameplate’s history.

Having been introduced in the same year as the first Formula One World Championship at Silverstone in 1950, the 74-year history of the Vantage runs side-by-side with that of the famous circuit. It also happens to be the home of Aston Martin’s AMR Technology Campus.

Both cars represent Aston Martin’s ambition to be a leader in high-performance technologies on and off track, with the F1 team seeking to build on its best-ever season in 2023, claiming nine podiums and 280 Championship points.

Between these two weapons of road and track sits the Vantage GT3 racer, inspired by the production sports car whose famous name it shall boldly carry to some of the world’s most prestigious endurance events, including the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2024.

The Vantage GT3 takes the supreme qualities of the new production model and evolves it into a formidable new racer that will write a new chapter in Aston Martin’s illustrious motorsport history.

Those achievements include 52 class wins and 11 world titles between 2012 and 2023, with the ultra-successful Vantage GTE.

“These three brothers in speed embroider our DNA with new dynamism,” Aston Martin’s executive chairman Lawrence Stroll said.

“Simultaneously revealing the new Vantage and Vantage GT3 race car on the very same day as we unleash our AMR24 Formula One challenger at Silverstone demonstrates our ambition to be a leading force in F1 and create the world’s finest and most thrilling sports cars,” he added.

“Boosted by a highly competitive F1 team, the synergy with high-performance motorsport technologies is something we can maximise even further through our next generation of sports cars and endurance motorsport strategy.”

The Aston Martin Aramco F1 team begins the 2024 FIA Formula One World Championship season at the Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix on 2 March 2024.
