Description

From the collection of Darren Turner - Aston Martin ‘Works’ Driver

• Finished in special order ‘Q’ colour of ‘Argento Nurburgring’
• Serviced by Aston Martin Works
• Highly specified example

Designed to celebrate the success of the Le Mans winning V8 Vantage GTE, the GT8 was built on a performance enhanced chassis. Clothed in a largely carbon fibre body and paired with an uprated 4.7 Litre V8 engine, the GT8 is the lightest and most powerful V8 Vantage that Aston Martin produced.

Aston Martin built just 150 examples of the GT8, and all were sold before the car was unveiled in early 2016. Aston Martin ‘Works’ Driver, Darren Turner was part of the development team from Gaydon that was entrusted with testing and evaluating the model before production began. Turner needs no introduction to his commitment to the brand having notched up three victories at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and numerous podiums in the FIA World Endurance Championship spanning a career with Aston Martin of some fourteen years.

As a mark of Turners success and career long involvement with Aston Martin, he was given the opportunity to purchase one of the first GT8 road cars, the example that we are proudly offering on his behalf.
