The GT3 special edition develops 600 PS, and is 100 kg lighter than the standard Vantage.

The car is powered by the same 6.0-liter V12 engine that develops 600 PS, while the weight has been reduced by 100 kg (at 1,565 kg) compared to the standard V12 Vantage S.

Re-engineered and restyled, the GT3-inspired special edition sits lower and wider, with broader tracks and is shod with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres. External enhancements include carbon fiber bonnet, door casings and wings.

Carbon fiber is used extensively in the interior on the center stack and seats, while an aero pack adds a prominent rear wing and front splitter for better downforce, grip and stability.
