Aston Martin wowed the socks off of everyone at the Geneva auto show when it showed off the Vantage GT3, a track-focused special edition with a 592-hp V-12 and looks to kill. All 100 examples have already sold out, but when those lucky owners receive their lightweight, carbon-fiber-intensive Astons, they won’t be getting a GT3.
