2007 Aston Martin Vantage N24 - Road registered
2007 Aston Martin Vantage N24
Aston Martin built and road registered, this accomplished example of Aston Martin’s first Gaydon built ‘off the shelf’ race car, conceived by former Aston Martin CEO, Dr Ulrich Bez and built within the newly formed Special Vehicle Operations based at the Gaydon factory. Boasting 410 bhp and weighing in at 1330kgs, some 250kgs lighter than the standard Vantage road car.
Built for the purpose of endurance racing, the N24 first made its competitive outing on the notorious Nordschliefe circuit, in the Nurburgring 24hrs in 2006, finishing a highly respectable 4th in class and 24th overall (out of 220 entrants!)
Following the N24’s initial and successful outings, a total of just 14 N24’s were constructed, by Aston Martin’s Special Vehicle Operations prior to motorsport competition engineers Prodrive, continuing production and eventual evolution of the N24, into the GT4.
The N24 on offer, is one of the first 14 Aston Martin built examples and believed to be 1 of only 4 to have been certified and registered with DVLA for road use. Built with the 6-speed manual transmission and driven by the first owner primarily on the road, the car was subsequently prepared by Velocity Motorsport and raced in a select number of AMOC and GT4 Challenge races, including the Le Mans Aston Martin Festival 1 hour race, in 2012.
By 2019 and with a fresh Aston Martin N24 4.3 litre race engine installed, this car was safety updated and fully prepared, prior to a shakedown test at Silverstone that year. It was planned to be raced in 2020, however with the advent of the Covid pandemic and resultant lockdowns, the 2020 season was cancelled. Put away into professional storage, the car has remained unraced since preparation. This competitive N24 is now eligible for inclusion in the newly created Masters Historic Racing GT Trophy (for 2007-2018 GT4, Challenge and Cup cars), currently run in conjunction with the prestigious, Endurance Legends race series.

A comprehensive spares package is included with the car, including handbrake fittings, spare wheels, exhaust components, suspension components, springs, lamps, hoses, hydraulic pipes and running essentials. A list is available on request.
