A rare opportunity to buy a new Vantage GT4

Wednesday, August 07, 2019

Being listed for sale on Racecarsdirect.com at the moment is a rare opportunity of skipping what is potentially still a very long waiting list at the Prodrive factory to secure yourself an almost mint example of a 2019 specification Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GT4.

Purchased by the David Appleby Engineering team, the team who prepare cars for the Generation AMR SuperRacing Team as part of a previously cancelled order from another Partner team, this chassis has only conducted a brief test at the Silverstone Circuit by the team just after they received both chassis from Prodrive earlier this year. The black Vantage in the background is the car the drivers James Holder and Matt George use in the GT4 European Series as well as the French FFSA GT Championships and will be retained by the team.

Since then, the car has only been taken to race events being competed in by Holder and George as a rolling spare but now the car is being offered for sale.

This was the car that TF Sport had enquired about using last weekend had they not been able to resolve the fuel tank/pump issue that was being experienced on the #97 car after Qualifying at Brands Hatch on Saturday. That request was never made in the end as firstly the problem was eventually rectified but also because the car may not have been allowed to run with TF Sport anyway at the Brands Hatch event due to the former chassis having already qualified.

We also understand that had David Appleby Engineering not have purchased the chassis when they did then it may well have ended up in the British GT Championship as part of a three car team effort and then, that team wasn't the only ones after it!!!

Always next year.........................!!
