Aston Martin V8 Vantage

Aston Martin V8 Vantage

Just hours after revealing the 2019 Vantage production vehicle, Aston Martin took the wraps off the racing version, the Vantage GTE.

Aston Martin revealed an all-new version of its most affordable model Tuesday.

The new Vantage promises to be more agile, responsiveness, sharper, vocal and exciting.

The new V8 Vantage has some Vulcan styling in the front with a wide-open grille that looks suspiciously like the Aston Martin logo upside down. Together with the new side gills, which have been integrated into the body surface and bleed air pressure out from the front wheel arches, and the pronounced upswept rear deck lid, the Vantage generates a significant level of downforce - a first for a core production Aston Martin model. Materials include a combination of perforated leather and synthetic suede, and Aston says it will offer a bunch of personalization with optional colors, materials, etc. Aimed at revamping Aston's current offerings and expanding its lineup moving forward, the strategy involves launching seven new models in as many years, the first of which was the 2017 DB11.

In addition, since its 503-horsepower V-8 takes up less space than a V-12, the Vantage has wheelbase that's 100 millimeters (roughly four inches) shorter than the DB11's.

Fonseca said the message has been on the rear window of her pickup for almost a year and it would remain there for the time-being. She said during the press conference that there are positive aspects to the attention this dispute has received.

Now we want to know: How would you configure your 2018 Aston Martin Vantage? So this new Vantage is relatively a compact variant of the vehicle. It's set low down and far back in the chassis for a ideal 50:50 weight distribution. The new E-Diff will be sure to handle power correctly when rocketing from 0-60 or hitting that top speed. Zero to 60 miles per hour happens in 3.6 seconds, an eight-speed ZF automatic is the sole gearbox (good, but a stick would be better) and it's got some innovative new technology at work.

The photos of the Vantage's show an eye-catching interior that looks as stunning as anything we've seen from Lamborghini or Ferrari in recent years. The Brits have really focused on making the new Vantage drive and handle like an Aston Martin should.

"We've collaborated closely with Aston Martin's Gaydon headquarters to develop the road and race cars in parallel".

Industry observers suggest a V12 version of the auto is likely to launch later, but not a hybrid as Aston Martin's already announced plans to offer electrified versions of all its cars are scheduled from 2025, suggesting the next generation of Vantage will be the first with electric power. If you're not paying attention, a walk through the paddock could result in a banged-up shin for you and a very expensive fix for the vehicle. Each makes the car's performance, and its engine sound, more aggressive.
