Elite is making 30 limited-edition LMV/Rs based on the V8 Vantage
5 August 2009

US firm Elite has launched 30 limited-edition Aston Martin Le Mans Vantage Racers (LMV/R).

Based on the Aston Martin V8 Vantage, the LMV/R is inspired by the Ferrari 430 Scuderia and Lamborghini Superleggera. It is significantly lighter than the Vantage that leaves the factory, thanks to Elite’s extensive use of carbonfibre bodywork.

Elite has also added an Alcantara interior with carbonfibre-panelling trim, 20-inch alloy wheels and a new rear wing and diffuser.

Other upgrades include a new aerodynamic kit, a sports exhaust system, lowered springs and stronger brakes.

Elite is currently looking for Aston Martin dealers to distribute its $173,000 (£100,000) package. This price doesn't include the Aston Martin Vantage base car, however.
