Total Control & Pure Emotion

Pure Sporting Capability

A pure-bred sports car combines agility, athleticism and potency. Powered by a lightweight 4.7ltr V8 engine, V8 Vantage adheres to an outright philosophy – effortless and exploitable performance. Fantastic performance figures; 426PS of peak power, maximum torque of 470Nm and a sprint time of 4.9secs to 62mph. V8 Vantage combines power and ability in one unique package. Hand-assembled at Aston Martin’s purpose-built engine facility the V8 engine is tuned to deliver the broadest possible spread of performance.

Advanced Engine Technology

Creating a great engine isn’t just about statistics it’s about usability. Special attention was paid to the way the engine breathes, performing to maximum at low and high revs.

Air flow is guided into the combustion chambers through sculpted inlets, and evacuated through free-flowing exhaust systems. Bypass valves subdue the exhaust note at low speeds, but at higher speeds these valves open to reduce pressure, increase the power output of the engine and produce a truly magnificent soundtrack.

The core of V8 Vantage is our VH (Vertical Horizontal) architecture. Providing a lightweight, high-strong and stiff structure to which the engine, transmission and double wishbone suspension are attached, the VH platform is designed to concentrate as much mass as possible within the wheelbase for perfect weight distribution, a low polar moment of inertia and a low centre of gravity.

Light, Strong
& Rigid

New Interior

Vantage’s new infotainment system, AMi II brings ergonomic and interface refinements to create a fully intuitive experience. High quality switchgear and contemporary materials combined with instantly responsive displays are integrated with the car’s dynamic performance. Key infotainment features now include Bluetooth® as standard, text message integration and a wide range of connectivity options. Convenience is married to peerless style with an elegant new centre stack available in a wide variety of tactile finishes, touch sensitive switchgear featuring haptic feedback technology and a user interface that is completely intuitive.

Industry Leading Dynamics

Power from the V8 engine. Agility from a choice of two transmission options. Stiffness from an advanced core. V8 Vantage adds a fourth layer; exceptional dynamics. ABS and Traction Control (TC) help maintain maximum grip at all times and in all weathers, while Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) provides a further layer of protection against wheel slip or loss of traction. We didn’t stop there; V8 Vantage features grooved and vented 380mm cast iron discs offering fantastic braking ability.
