About the Aston Martin V8 Vantage

The Aston Martin Vantage epitomizes the auto designer’s art. Curbside elegance, married to exceptional performance and handling, result in automotive excellent encountered only once or twice in a lifetime. The noteworthy performance is provided by a quad-cam, 4.7-liter, V-8 which turns out a very healthy 420 horsepower and a maximum of 346 ft./lbs. of torque, just the thing for a muscular launch at the starting line.

Found in both the roadster and couple models, this power plant is capable of rocketing the Vantage around the track at 180 mph.

However, not all the 180-mph speed derives from the magnificent engine. Aston Martin incorporated a high-strength, low-weight, aluminum-magnesium-steel alloy into the body and frame. The suspension and weight distribution were fine-tuned to enhance agility and better cornering, while outstanding aerodynamic design reduces drag. As a two-seater, this is most definitely a sports car, not a grocery-getter.

Fuel economy is 12 mpg in the city and 16 mpg on the highway. The body and chassis are designed and handcrafted in Gaydon, Warwickshire, UK, while the magnificent engine is made and assembled in Cologne, Germany.

The Aston Martin Vantage was born in 1972 as the successor to the legendary DB series. Originally powered by a straight 6-engine, the power plant was reworked and replaced by the more familiar V-8 configuration at the end of the first generation. It remained in production until the late 1980s, then after a short hiatus, production resumed in 1993 and continued until 2000.

After several corporate-level shufflings, the Vantage V8 reemerged in 2005. A notable feature of the 2010 model was a strong resemblance to its relatively more glamorous sibling, the V12.

The Aston Martin mystique demands a constellation of available options and buyers of a Vantage V8 will be satisfied. Refining exterior touches include: two sport packs boasting either 5-spoke or 12-spoke forged alloy wheels; silver bonnet and side strake meshes; 19-inch, 20-spoke wheels; and a host of other high-end features. Aston Martin products are valued for their attention to ensuring the comfort of the driver and passengers, an attitude that is carried through in the Vantage’s interior.

A few options include heated seats, a classic piano-black fascia trim, a 700-watt audio system, satellite and Sirius radio capabilities, GPS and Bluetooth.

The Aston Martin Vantage has the curriculum vitae of a movie star. The Vantage 8 Volante appeared in The Living Daylights, following in the tire prints of the estimable DB series. The newest generation was designed to compete against such high-end brands as Porsche and BMW.

Car Design News readers in 2006 voted the Aston Martin Vantage 8 as the best current car design, while in 2007 Automobile magazine voted it one of the publication’s All Stars for the model year. Additionally, a near-stock Vantage V8 with a racing package installed performed very well in the 2006 Nurburing 24-hour endurance race and was then driven home on public roads.
