Aston Martin Rally GT, based on the Aston Martin V8 Vantage, was developed
by Aston Martin Racing and automotive engineering specialists
Prodrive (see Prodrive
P2) for use in rally racing.
The Aston Martin Rally GT was extensively engineered by Prodrive,
and like the DBRS9 based on the Aston Martin DB9, the Rally GT is based on a
standard road car's chassis. However the Rally GT has been fitted
with a Prodrive rollcage, a tuned and more responsive version
of the standard car's 4.3 litre V8, and new competition Eibach
springs and adjustable EXE-TC dampers. The 6-speed transmission
is the same unit found in the road car, but it can be upgraded
to a close ratio dog engagement gearbox specifically developed
for the Aston Martin Rally GT.
