We’ll sound like a broken record if we say again what a banner year it’s been for GT2 & GT3 cars, but looking at this new Aston Martin V12 Vantage GT3 just begs us to say it again. I mean, just look at it- that car is 100% gorgeous. Let’s be clear though- Aston Martins have always been the clear choice for someone who wants sophistication in their supercars. Someone who isn’tĀ necessarily concerned with getting places the very fastest or having the absolute most power on tap, but instead how much class and female attention the car conjures when it does arrive to any given destination.

This new V12 Vantage GT3, however, will ditch all of the sophistication and replace it with power. Aston’s saying they’d like the car to hit the 600 horsepower mark and weigh around theĀ 2,700-pound mark, or roughly a Mazda Miata with a dead body in the trunk. All the while still looking like a naked Jennifer Aniston with a really big spoiler and two exhaust pipes.

The car is expected to make it’s first debut this July and in case you’ve forgotten, here is a list that proves why 2011 has been such an epic year for streetcars gone racy:

- McLaren MP4-12C GT3

- Ferrari 458 Italia GT2

- Porsche 911 RSR GT3

- Lancia Stratos GT2
