Aston Martin To Improve Upon V8 Vantage

Written by tonks on June 4, 2008

V8 VantageThe Vantage is one of the more popular Aston Martin’s and is one of their most successful – which was proven when it earned up to 10,000 sales. Taking from this experience they have decided to improve on the Vantage in the hopes that they will attract more customers.

Although the changes may not be too apparent from the outside if you lift the hood you will see an enlarged engine – up from 4.3-litres to 4.7-litres, which raises power by just over ten per cent to a new high of 420bhp. This reduces the 0-60mph acceleration time to 4.7 seconds and lifts the top speed to 180mph. Economy improves to just over 20mpg in manual mode and you will be able to travel precisely one mile further if the transmission is in Sportshift mode, which has also been improved.

There are also enhancements to the suspension system in order to achieve mission impossible by improving both the low speed comfort and high speed cornering.
