Aston Martin Racing has announced the Vantage Legacy Collection, a trio of cars offered to commemorate the British brand’s racing success in the past decade. The set includes the final V8 Vantage GTE as well as the Vantage GT3 and GT4. 

Aston Martin Vantage posted class victories in the 24 Hours of Le Mans race in 2014 and 2017 and earned seven FIA World Endurance Championships between 2009 and 2018, as well as other British, European and World Challenge titles.

“The trio of Legacy Vantages, based on V8 Vantage road car launched in 2005, have been created in Aston Martin Racing’s workshops and is being offered for sale as a collection,” the company said, albeit without announcing the price. 

It did say all three cars are built on “brand new chassis,” are ready to race and are identically liveried in sterling green with yellow trim lines around the radiator and above the side windows.

The Vantage GT4 in the set is the last of 108 such vehicles produced since 2009, the company noted, adding that the GTE in the collection is the seventh and final one of its kind and carries chassis number 007.

“For a collector, this trio of Aston Martin Racing Vantages represents the ultimate tribute to a halcyon period for the brand in international sports car racing,” said David King, Aston Martin Racing president.

“While Aston Martin has since gone on to record world championship titles with the current generation turbo-charged V8 Vantage, the foundations laid by the huge success of the original car won it admirers the around the globe and led to it becoming a firm favorite with racing fans. The Legacy collection is a beautiful sign-off for this wonderful car.”
