To celebrate Aston Martin’s 2016 World Endurance Championship campaign, the British car maker has announced they are releasing a limited edition run of 250 sets of ‘Wing’ badges, each representing the flag of the countries the V8 Vantage GTE has raced in. With
only 1 road to go in Bahrain, the GTE’s have all ready completed the 6 hour races in Belgium, Germany, France, the UK, the USA, China, Mexico and Japan. Each badge was hand made in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter and is made from a base of copper with coloured enamel placed into the 42 different segments. The full set of 9 pins will set back the 250 lucky owner £3,750 and will be available from selected Aston Martin dealers and their Boutique store in Mayfair.

The V8 Vantage GTE competes in the LMGTE AM catorgory and is based on the road going model with a variety of motorsport upgrades and an increased power output of 480bhp. The 2016 season has been very succesful for the British manufacturer with 5 race wins out of the 8 completed races and driver trio of Mathias Lauda, Pedro Lamy and Paul Dalla Lana sitting 2nd in their respected series.
