HMG Paints continues Prodrive partnership with launch of new era Aston Martin Vantage GT3

13 March 2024

Manchester, UK-based HMG Paints’ range of coatings will once again be taking to the track on race circuits across the world but this year, it will be on the spectacular new Aston Martin Vantage GT3. As Technical Partners with Prodrive, one of the world’s largest and most successful motorsport and technology businesses, HMG will provide its paints for a number of cars throughout the upcoming season.

The Vantage GT3 is a comprehensive evolution of the ultra-successful and recently retired Vantage GTE and GT3 cars, which made their debuts in 2018. Sharing their mechanical architecture – and that of the new Vantage road car – the Vantage GT3 is built around Aston Martin’s proven bonded aluminium chassis structure and powered by its fearsome twin-turbo 4.0-litre V8 engine. Boasting a dramatic, all-new nose-to-tail aerodynamic package, comprehensively revised suspension and state-of-the-art electronics, together they endow this latest-generation Aston Martin GT racer with world-beating potential.

Built to comply with all FIA GT3 class regulations, including the new-for-2024 LMGT3 category, the new Vantage GT3 is a truly global competitor. The Vantage GT3 will be fighting for victory at the Nürburgring 24 Hours, Spa-Francorchamps 24 Hours and – most iconic of all – the 24 Hours of Le Mans later this year. The Vantage GT3 will also see action in a host of national GT championships around the globe – including the Japanese Super GT Championship and British GT Championship – underlining Aston Martin’s leading role in world motorsport.

HMG’s partnership with Prodrive dates back to 2013, and has seen HMG’s range of paints and coatings appear on a number of iconic cars built and run by Prodrive in several global racing series.
