Aston Martin Racing announced the E85-compatible Vantage GT2 car back in January, but all we saw at the time was a sketch. Well, on Friday, Aston finally unveiled the sexy flex-fuel racer, and it's a visual feast. The Vantage is a beautiful starting point, and when race-prepped, it looks positively menacing. It's race debut comes on April 5th when the green flag waves at the European Le Mans Series round in Barcelona. In addition to the European LMS, the Vantage GT2 is also cleared for use in ALMS competition. In due time, racing cars like this -- ones that use flex-fuel or other alternative fuel technologies -- will become the norm as race series integrate green policies and initiatives like the Green Challenge ALMS announced this year in Detroit.
