Competition has been part of Aston Martinís focus since its inception, and its lineup has long been composed of designs as adept at grand touring as racing. The Vantage nameplate returned to Aston Martinís lineup in 2005 as its most performance-oriented model. Available in mid-mounted V-8 and V-12 power, the Vantage took advantage of a rear-mounted transaxle for excellent 49/51 weight distribution in road-going guise.

It didnít take long for a competition version to arrive. The V8 Vantage N24 bowed in in 2006. As its name suggests, it was intended to compete in the 24 Hours NŁrburgring endurance race. Modifications were extensive, but they didnít dilute the road-going carís design. Then-CEO Dr. Ulrich Bez helped usher the car to a 4th-place finish in its class at its debut outing. Perhaps more famously, Top Gear presenter James May drove one in pursuit of the most demanding road in the world. The race-ready V8 Vantageís street limitations became obvious on a hot day, and a de-clothed May famously drenched himself in water to keep cool.

Two years later, Aston Martin upgraded the race car with an upsized 4.7-liter V-8 and rechristened it the Vantage GT4, as it became eligible for FIA GT4 competition. Suspension modifications allowed for increased castor and camber angles for more flexibility on a wider variety of circuits. A new Bosch ABS and traction control system were added to the options list.

The V8 Vantage GT4 offered here, chassis number 048, was originally campaigned as a VIP demonstrator by LG Motorsports veteran Lou Gigliotti. The car is wrapped in Aston Martin heritage green with yellow accents around its intake and roof pillars. The seller has campaigned it in a handful of SCCA Majors, but a majority of its recent use has been on track days. The car has been serviced and supported by Champion Motorsport in Pompano Beach, Florida. To note: Its safety equipment, such as the seat belts, and fire suppressant, have 2014 FIA expiration tags.

Recently serviced with an eye toward future track use, this V8 Vantage GT4 is ready to be enjoyed by its next owner.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/mo19.
