The 24 Hours of Le Mans is one of the most important, and perhaps most recognizable, endurance racing events worldwide, and automakers regularly save some debuts for this action-packed weekend.

Enter Aston Martin and not one, but two different race cars.

Aston Martin pulled back the veil on the Vantage GT3 and GT4 racers ahead of the 24-hour race in France this coming weekend.

While the car it's based on, the Aston Martin Vantage GTE, will be racing at Le Mans this weekend, fans of the GT3 and GT4 will have to wait until March of next year to see it hustling through corners.

The two new Vantage racers are split into two distinct classes.

The Vantage GT3 will enter a class that includes both amateurs and professionals.

At the 2017 Geneva Motor Show, Aston Martin announced AMR, its answer to performance sub-brands like BMW M and Mercedes-AMG.

It showed a couple of AMR concepts at Geneva, but is only now revealing the first production model.

That would be the Vantage AMR, which Aston says represents the lower of two “tiers” of AMR models it plans to offer.

While the Vantage AMR features some upgrades and special features, Aston is also planning a line of AMR Pro models with more extensive modifications.

Aston views the AMR sub-brand as a celebration of its racing exploits, so among the options for the Vantage AMR is a paint scheme inspired by a championship-winning car.

The Goodwood Festival of Speed in West Sussex, England, is an annual treat for gearheads and racing enthusiasts alike, but if you have a thing for British metal, 2016 will be extra special.

Along with tons of other stars from the U.K., Aston Martin will showcase four vehicles that are equally at home on a bedroom poster as they are on the racetrack.

The Vantage GT8, V12 Vantage S, Vulcan hypercar, and all-new DB11 will participate in Goodwood s famous hill climb, and one of them will have a very distinguished driver.

The Goodwood Festival of Speed is one of the best events of the summer season and Lord March s beautiful estate has become a place of pilgrimage for car enthusiasts, said Palmer.

Unfortunately for the rest of us, all 24 of the carbon-fiber-laden beauties are sold out.

The Vantage GT8 — heavily inspired by the V8 Vantage GTE race car — will participate in the Supercar Shootout portion of Goodwood with a 440-hp V8 as its primary weapon.

BMW likes to tout its motor sports pedigree, but since 2011 the German automaker has been absent from one of racing s biggest stages: the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

But BMW is planning a comeback.

It will enter the FIA World Endurance Championship WEC , the race series that includes Le Mans, in 2018, and will race in the GTE class for production-based cars.

That means BMW won t compete for an overall Le Mans win, but it will rub fenders with the same cars it competes with in showrooms.

The GTE class includes the Chevrolet Corvette, Porsche 911, Aston Martin V8 Vantage, Ferrari 488, and Ford GT which won the class at Le Mans this year .

Using race cars based on road cars makes the class more relevant to fans than the top LMP1 prototype class.

But the British automaker has developed a way for those who aren’t part of the 1% to experience its luxury cars.

Bentley created an augmented reality (AR) app for its EXP 100 GT concept, and now it’s done the same for the 2020 Flying Spur sedan.

Available for iOS and Android, the app lets users of the Flying Spur, Bentley’s newest production model.

Users can do a virtual walk-around of the car, as well as climb in and take a virtual test drive.

In addition to displaying a full-size car, the app can shrink it down to a tabletop-sized model, according to Bentley.

Bentley owners can personalize their cars through a myriad combination of colors and trim materials, but Bentley has narrowed it down to two options for the app.

For a few years now, automotive enthusiasts have been observing a trend that might soon apply to all types of vehicles.

Not only is the car industry gradually shifting to electric platforms, but it seems that most modern rides are now equipped with automatic drivetrains.

Nevertheless, the 2020 Aston Martin Vantage AMR is outfitted with one for those who are interested.

Hence, the 2020 Aston Martin Vantage AMG offers that option for consumers who want complete control over their ride.

CNet notes that with the starting price of $184,995, buyers can check out other options, but fans will most likely choose it for the brand recognition alone.

On top of the renowned marque, this luxurious coupe will certainly appeal to those seeking a more tactile driving experience.
