As regular readers will already know, MotorMartin is a big fan of all things Aston Martin and so news that leading luxury dealer group H.R. Owen have welcomed an extremely rare Aston Martin to its Cheltenham showroom – a limited-edition Vantage GT8, has been met with excitement over here on the top floor of the Towers.
It’s. even shared with MotorMartin that Aston Martin have drawn on all of their extensive competitive experience in GTE, GT3 and GT4 racing to create the GT8 – a track-focused, lightweight powerhouse that delivers 440bhp thrills. Crikey.
To keep things exclusive, just 150 models were created by Aston Martin, and H.R. Owen, have shared with MotorMartin that they have exclusively listed car no. 66 for sale. Available for viewing at Aston Martin Cheltenham, the GT8 is finished in striking Onyx Black metallic paint, with red inserts both inside and out hinting at its explosive potential and, in MotorMartin’s opinion, looks absolutely stunning.
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. However, H.R. Owen has used its stature in the automotive world as the very best in the business to offer such an exclusive model to one lucky client. The Vantage GT8 is currently listed at £259,950 which could be considered as something of a bargain.
H.R. Owen demonstrated its credentials as the UK’s leading luxury dealer group once again recently when the Aston Martin Reading welcomed one of the rarest Aston Martins around to the showroom.
The Vanquish Volante AM37 Edition by Q is a one-of-one model that celebrates the launch of Aston Martin’s partnership with Quintessence Yachts, featuring completely unique touches and a special-edition ‘1 of 1’ plaque.
Stephan Plant, General Manager of Aston Martin Cheltenham, explained to MotorMartin recently that: “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.”
The Aston Martin Vantage GT8 is available to purchase for £259,950. Best start saving I reckon.
