H.R. Owen Cheltenham lists rare Aston Martin Vantage GT8

Time 8:30 am, April 25, 2017

LUXURY dealer group H.R. Owen has welcomed a rare Aston Martin to its Cheltenham showroom – a limited-edition Vantage GT8.

Aston Martin drew on all of its extensive competitive experience in GTE, GT3 and GT4 racing to create the GT8 – a track-focused, lightweight powerhouse that delivers 440bhp thrills.

Just 150 GT8s were created, and H.R. Owen has exclusively listed number 66, pictured, for sale at £259,950. The GT8 is finished in Onyx Black metallic paint, with red inserts inside and out.

Its massive rear wing adds even more drama to the equation, while the carbon-fibre front splitter, door sills and roof both save weight and create an even more monstrous look.

The car was unveiled at the end of 2016 to something of a fanfare, with the 150 cars selling out in double-quick time.

Stephan Plant, general manager of Aston Martin Cheltenham, said: ‘We are delighted to be able to offer this incredibly rare Aston Martin Vantage GT8 for sale. It’s one of only 150 ever made and is a fantastic collector’s item for any Aston Martin enthusiast. These cars sold out long before they were released in the UK, so having this car up for grabs represents a very rare opportunity for a lucky buyer.’
