Aston Martin Racing has launched a new Vantage GT4 for 2011. The new V8 engined racing car takes its design inspiration from Aston Martin’s V12 Vantage road car, which provides enhanced aerodynamics and increased downforce. It also has a remapped 4.7 litre engine offering increased levels of power and torque.
Aston Martin’s ultimate in design, engineering and craftsmanship, the One-77 is being readied for production, the engineers down at Gaydon decided to put it on the dyno and find out just how much its 7.3 litre V12 engine is pumping out. The result? 750bhp and 750Nm of torque, positioning it as the most powerful naturally aspirated road car engine in the world today.
