Aston Martin has revealed the latest version of the Vantage sports car.
Coming with an all-new aggressive design that stands out from the crowd, the Vantage comes with a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine that is paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The ferocious engine produces 503bhp and 685Nm of torque, which when driven through the rear wheels translates to a 0-60mph time of 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 195mph.
Fitted with an electronic rear differential and torque vectoring system, the Vantage is focused on being great to drive and with a 50:50 weight distribution and low centre of gravity, it should handle well in most conditions.
The car sits on specially developed Pirelli P Zero tyres and adaptive suspension, while you can choose between Sport, Sport Plus and Track driving modes to optimise the car to its fullest.
Inside the Vantage is well-equipped with a central eight-inch infotainment touchscreen, satellite navigation, Bluetooth, smartphone connectivity, air conditioning and a high-quality material finish as standard.
Systems fitted include start/stop, parking distance display, park assist and all-around parking sensors. Optional extras are also available, with the Sport Plus Collection that includes a sport steering wheel and seats, premium audio system and various forged alloy wheels also on offer.
Aston Martin president and CEO Andy Palmer said: “It speaks volumes for the outgoing Vantage that it is the single most successful model in Aston Martin’s history. Creating a worthy successor has been a challenge to relish and a huge source of motivation.
“I’m enormously excited by what we’ve created: a new Vantage that’s more explicit in looks and intent, wrapping heart-pounding performance and dazzling dynamics into an everyday usable package. A true sports car with a sharper look and a keener dynamic edge, the new Vantage is the Aston Martin pure driving machine enthusiasts have been waiting for.”
Available to order now, prices for the new Vantage start from £120,900 in the UK with deliveries beginning in the second quarter of 2018. For more information on the new Vantage, register your interest or contact a member of the team on 0113 389 0700.
