Dynamic Upgrades

With outstanding performance and handling, the V8 Vantage represents Aston Martin's archetypal sports car. To enhance this performance yet further we have developed three custom upgrades. The Sports Pack reduces body roll and improves handling, the Sports Exhaust offers a more dynamic driving soundtrack and the Power Upgrade adds further potency to the renowned V8 Vantage engine. Available from official Aston Martin dealers all three of these upgrades prove consistently popular with V8 Vantage owners.

Sports Pack

The V8 Vantage Sports Pack has been developed with the enthusiast in mind. Already boasting an outstanding chassis as its foundation, the Sports Pack sees further key components tuned to deliver an even more agile and focused driving experience.

A process-driven, comprehensive approach has been taken in re-engineering such components, to ensure that all modifications made work not only to complement each other but also to increase the precision of the overall driving experience.

For example the combination of up rated springs and Bilstein aluminium dampers with their improved dynamic response works in perfect harmony with the new lightweight, five-spoke alloy wheels, all resulting in an exceptionally responsive suspension.

Overall the pack helps reduce body roll and improve control especially at high speeds, while also offering unrivalled agility in all aspects of handling.

Sports Exhaust

The V8 Vantage Sports Exhaust has a new stainless steel silencer is designed and developed to the same exciting durability and integrity standards applied to the cars' original fit silencer guaranteeing compatibility with your Aston Martin. The silencer is an all new lighter design having a new external shape profiled to support undercar airflow, different internal tuning and retains the engine management controlled exhaust valves.

Uniquely, this ensures that this silencer is fully compliant with all noise legislation yet gives the V8 a more dynamic soundtrack. Aston Martin engineers have developed a new engine calibration that has optimised valve opening points to maximise sound quality but at a low load and cruising speed the valves close to minimise unwanted noise. The exhaust valves also stay open on the over-run to give a distinctive and different sports characteristic to the standard silencer. To signify the fitment of the Sports Exhaust system a pair of new dark smoked stainless steel Graphitic tailpipes are supplied. These tailpipes are exclusive to this system, and the construction of these parts has been tuned to work in conjunction with the silencer.

Power Upgrade

The V8 Vantage Power upgrade creates an even more potent version of Aston Martin's already impressive 4.3 litre engine. The Power upgrade features valved airboxes that open at higher rpm allowing additional air into the engine, which in turn enables more power to be produced.

Peak power is raised by 20bhp to 400bhp while peak torque is also increased by 10Nm to 420Nm. The revised engine management system also enables the engine to take full advantage of the latest high octane fuels, providing a crisper throttle response and stronger performance feel.
