Motorsport Pron: Aston Martin Vantage V12 vs. Aston Martin Vantage GT4 (Jalopnik)

Continuing with our motorsport week here on ROTL is a piece from Jalopnik. Aston Martin's V12 Vantage road car is known to be the best performing chassis/engine combo Aston puts out, but in an interesting contest it's pitted against the new Aston Martin GT4. The GT4 is a race spec factory car running a V8 rather than a V12, a cage, race suspension, track diet etc., but the sticker price on both is roughly the same. I think you know how this will end.
