The three factory-entered Aston Martin Vantage GTEs competing in the FIA World Endurance Championship will race with a new livery next season.

Aston released images of its updated design on Saturday, three days before the pre-season Prologue test at Circuit de Catalunya next week.

The bright green livery used in the car’s first season with the works GTE-Pro outfit has been retained as a base layer and covered in a new stripe pattern on the rear of the car.

The updated scheme will be active on both the GTE-Pro machines and the No. 98 GTE-Am entry which is also operated by the Prodrive-run AMR squad.

They will be made distinguishable by different colored sun shades on their windscreens.

This season marks the first time that the second-generation Vantage, which debuted last year, can be raced by Am-class teams in the WEC.

Aston Martin has yet to confirm its GTE-Pro driver lineups for the 2019-20 season, although unchanged pairings have been confirmed for the Silverstone season-opener.

Nicki Thiim and Marco Sorensen will return in the No. 95 car, while Alex Lynn and Maxime Martin will co-drive the No. 97 machine.

Additionally, Jonny Adam has been placed with the TF Sport customer squad in the GTE-Am ranks.

The Scot, who contested three races last season with the GTE-Pro team, joined TF Sport for most of the 2018-19 campaign and has now been confirmed with the team for the whole season alongside Charlie Eastwood and Salih Yoluc.

Paul Dalla Lana is so far the only driver confirmed in the No. 98 AMR entry.
