We know the Aston Martin Vantage GT4 as a GTS class that is currently eligible for the famous Pirelli World Challenge. It is also one of the most famous GT4 cars in the world, featuring a very forgiving 4.7-liter V8 and six-speed transmission with over 400 bhp available to its driver.
The GT4 is FIA compliant, and comes with a decent amount of equipment for its $175,000 buy in, including aluminum chassis, Recaro Competition seats, adjustable carbon fiber rear wing, cannards, front splitter, and about 300 kilograms shaved off its curb weight. It also comes with double wishbone suspension, four-piston monoblock calipers, twin front cooling ducts, and Bosch ABS/Traction Control.
The Vantage GT4 received its fair share of success in 2012, with 47 podium finished, 40 wins, and two championships. In 2013, the GT4 earned 68 podium finishes, 27 wins, and 19 poles. For 2014, the Vantage GT4 is getting it own North American race series.
The Series kicks off on May 16-18 at the Watkins Glen, and will end on November 21-23 at Sebring. The series will be open to any (and all) GT4 owners (or borrow from a friend), and once your money has been accepted you will have the opportunity to rampage some of North America's most infamous courses, including the Laguna Seca, Road America, and Mont-Tremblant.
