Aston Martin Rally GT Racing V8 Vantage

Aston Martin Rally GT V8 Vantage

The Aston Martin Rally GT, based on the Aston Martin V8 Vantage, was developed by Aston Martin Racing and automotive engineering specialists Prodrive (see Prodrive P2) for use in rally racing.

The Aston Martin Rally GT was extensively engineered by Prodrive, and like the DBRS9 based on the Aston Martin DB9, the Rally GT is based on a standard road car's chassis. However the Rally GT has been fitted with a Prodrive rollcage, a tuned and more responsive version of the standard car's 4.3 litre V8, and new competition Eibach springs and adjustable EXE-TC dampers. The 6-speed transmission is the same unit found in the road car, but it can be upgraded to a close ratio dog engagement gearbox specifically developed for the Aston Martin Rally GT.
