The Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT4 model suffered several modifications in 2011. The engine power increased, and the aerodynamic shape was improved with a boot flip, a redesigned floor for greater rear downforce, a new front splitter and a new diffuser. An uprated suspension allows increased castor and camber angles. The GT4 is built in according the FIA GT4 regulations, therefore it can compete in endurance races.

The 2011 Aston Martin Racing Vantage GT4 model has uprated two-piece front brake discs and high-performance Pagid RS 29 race pads installed on four-piston monoblock calipers. The brakes are steel rotors, not carbon ceramics so they can grab faster. In the front, the car is equipped with twin front brake cooling ducts. Other options include a Bosch race-developed ABS traction control system and an endurance brake package.

To fuel the 4.7 liter V8 engine, GT4 has a FIA-approved bag type 115 litre centrally mounted tank with twin fill. The transmission is a six-speed manual transmission or sportshift (ASM). Handling this super-car is easy and predictable, because it has an excellent grip in tight corners and it develops powerful downforce due to the large front splitter and carbon fiber rear wing.

The GT4 is also equipped with a rigid, lightweight bonded aluminum chassis is light and FIA approved full rollcage in 15CDV6 high-strength steel. The side and rear windows are made from polycarbonate and the suspension is modified for for toe, caster and camber.

The driver has a low position in the cockpit, making it difficult to see the right front corner of the vehicle. The Recaro carbon fiber seat has the Racing logo imprinted and a Sabelt six-point safety harness. A carbon fiber interior optional pack is available, with black pedals, carbon door pulls and carbon fascia. The interior is wrapped in Alcantara or leather upholstery.

In 2013 the brand celebrates its 100 birthday by entering two Aston Martin Vantage GTE’s in the LMGTE AM and two in the LMGTE PRO class. The same cars will also compete in the FIA World Endurance Championship. The GTW, which includes the GT3 and GT4, is the most technically advanced racing car built by Aston Martin.
