A celebration of Motorsport Success

Racing success is always hard won, never more so than at the Nürburgring Nordschleife. Yet in the last four years Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT4 race cars have delivered two SP10 class wins and four podiums in the uniquely challenging ‘N24’ Nürburgring 24-hour endurance race. To mark this achievement – and bring an intensified racing flavour to our most focussed road-going model, the V8 Vantage S – we have created the ‘SP10 Special Edition’.

Performance

Built around the same core ingredients as Aston Martin’s dominant GT4 racers, the SP10 Special Edition features the potent version of our magnificent 4.7-litre V8 engine. Developing 436 PS, 490 Nm of torque it delivers rousing performance and a fabulous soundtrack to match, courtesy of a special sports exhaust system.

Design

Available as a Coupe or Roadster, the Vantage SP10 is blessed with perfect proportions and breathtaking looks. Featuring discreetly enhanced race-proven aerodynamics for increased stability and visual presence, both versions are finished in lustrous Ceramic Grey metallic paintwork, the Roadster with a Titan Grey hood. Black 19" V-Spoke forged alloy wheels and black brake calipers continue the striking monochrome look.

Control

As befits a car with racing in its DNA the SP10 Special Edition is a true driver’s car blessed with supreme athleticism. Fitted with a 6‑speed manual transmission as standard (the first time the V8 S engine has been mated to a manual) or optional 7‑speed Sportshift II paddle operated transmission, the SP10 appeals to both purists and technocrats. The SP10’s powerful brakes, wider tyres and more responsive steering complete a peerless dynamic package.

ENGINEERING

Light and strong, compact and perfectly balanced, the SP10 Special Edition is blessed with the inherent poise and feel that define every Aston Martin. Built around an all-alloy structure and employing advanced materials such as magnesium and composites to reduce weight, this intelligent engineering is the key to the SP10’s exploitable performance, not to mention its supreme pace and durability in the most gruelling endurance race of all.

CRAFTSMANSHIP

The SP10 Special Edition might have the beating heart of a racing car, but it remains a pure Aston Martin. That means the finest materials, applied in the most stylish way to create a car of rare quality and luxury. Special use of black Alcantara, supple leather and contrasting silver stitching and high-gloss Piano Black detailing create a suitably sporting ambience. As a finishing touch each SP10 Special Edition will carry a bespoke plaque denoting its special series status.
