One of the world’s most iconic 24-hour races will serve as the introduction for a new racing Aston Martin.

The Aston Martin Vantage is one of the brand’s most iconic sports cars. It’s got dashing looks, British luxury and racing spirit, and a turbocharged 4-liter V8 engine that gives it world-class performance and dynamism. The latest racing version of the car, the Vantage GT3 has been preparing for the infamously challenging 15.8-mile Nordschleife circuit of the Nürburging to compete in the Nürburgring 24-hour race.

Along with it, two German teams will be entering 3 Vantage GT4s each, with a total of seven Aston Martin Vantage-based race cars on the track for the event. Aston Martin has been a presence at the Nürburgring since 2005 with the Vantage GT4. Placing fourth, the V12 Vantage GT3 gave Aston Martin its best results at the Nürburgring in 2018. Practice begins for the ADAC TotalEnergies 24h Nürburgring on Friday, May 26, with the race beginning at 4:00 PM CET on Saturday, May 27. It will be available to live stream on both the event’s website and YouTube channel.
