Aston Martin, a United Kingdom-based automaker, has launched a limited-edition version of the V8 Vantage called GT8, developed with track use in mind.

The model is equipped with a naturally-aspirated 4.7-litre V8 engine that generates 446bhp, coupled with a choice of a six-speed manual transmission and a seven-speed automated-manual unit controlled by shift paddles. It features polycarbonate rear windows, a titanium exhaust system, a carbon fibre roof panel, a full body kit that includes a front splitter, wheel arch flares, and a rear air diffuser.

The vehicle is available on sale now, priced from GBP165,000. The automaker is producing 150 units of the vehicle, but none of them will be allocated to the United States.
