In an unprecedented unveiling of three cars on the same day, Aston Martin presented a comprehensive trilogy that spans F1 and the World Endurance Championship at the apex of modern motorsport, and the forefront of road-going sports cars. This trio encapsulates the racing heart of the British ultra-luxury manufacturer and its commitment to integrating motorsport technologies in its high-performance cars for the road.
On one of Aston Martin's most significant launch days in its 111-year history, Aston Martin Aramco Formula One Team unveiled the AMR24 Formula One challenger at the home of British motorsport. The latest Vantage road car was also revealed to the world – the quintessential Aston Martin sports car and the most driver-focused and fastest Vantage in the nameplate's history – as well as its all-new GT racing counterpart that completed the line-up.
Having been introduced in the year of the first World Championship Formula One race at Silverstone in 1950, the 74-year history of Vantage runs in tandem with that of the famous circuit that Aston Martin's team now calls home at the cutting-edge AMR Technology Campus, making the trilogy's announcement all the more pertinent.
Both cars represent Aston Martin's ambition to be a leader in high-performance technologies and on track, with Aston Martin Aramco seeking to build on its best-ever season in 2023, claiming nine podiums and 280 Championship points under the expert control of Lance Stroll and Fernando Alonso.
Engineered for real drivers, the Vantage is an authentic, unadulterated celebration of pure performance, technically crafted to deliver maximum thrills with maximum confidence. It sits naturally alongside the marque's visceral challenger for the 2024 FIA Formula One World Championship.
Delivering breathtaking power, razor-sharp handling and striking the perfect balance between a finely-tuned front-engine and a rear-wheel drive chassis, the Vantage is the quintessential Aston Martin sports car that still holds true to the moniker's founding principles that have endured through its extensive lineage. The ultra-luxury brand's road car roster is stronger than ever in 2024, as the latest Vantage joins the DB12 Coupe and Volante released in 2023, further strengthening Aston Martin's next generation of sports cars.
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 GT racer that will write a new chapter in Aston Martin's illustrious motorsport history, having scored a remarkable 52 class wins and 11 world titles between 2012 and 2023 with the ultra-successful Vantage GTE.
Lawrence Stroll, Executive Chairman of Aston Martin said:
"These three brothers in speed embroider our DNA with new dynamism. 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.
"Today's celebration of high-performance also highlights the burgeoning relationship between our road and race programmes, with Aston Martin Lagonda now benefitting from the exceptional pool of engineering talent, experience and knowledge forged in Formula One and harvested through Aston Martin Performance Technologies.
"Over recent years we have already seen the sport of Formula One have a transformative impact on our brand, attracting new customers to Aston Martin and driving reappraisal of our products. 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 sportscars and endurance motorsport strategy."
