Try not to hyperventilate. This beauty right here is the special edition Aston Martin Vantage GT3. Only 100 of these track-focused super Vantages, each housing a reworked 6.0-liter V12 with 592 horsepower, will be built. As the name and that enormous rear wing indicate, this model is a road version of the GT3 Vantage racer.

Nearly everything on the car, inside and out, has been altered. Beyond the tweaked engine, the car features magnesium inlet manifolds, a magnesium torque tube, and a titanium exhaust system, helping keep the weight down.Additional weight savings come from a massive use of carbon fiber (rear wing, front splitter, trunk, door casings, roof, and front wings).

The changes shaved a total of 220 pounds off the original V12 Vantage S. Combine that with a lower and wider stance, and this car is going to hug a corner like you hug your momma.

The interior is gorgeously crafted with full alcantara. The continued carbon surroundings continue through the center stack and the carbon sport seats. The special edition model will break cover at the Geneva Motor Show on March 3.
