Improvements to the Aston Martin V8 Vantage range further enhance the dynamics, style and value
Improvements to the Aston Martin V8 Vantage range further enhance the dynamics, style and value. The revised 4.7-litre 420bhp (426PS/313kW) entry-level V8 Vantage features a raft of improvements first seen in the Vantage S. The standard six-speed manual transmission remains, but the optional six-speed Sportshift™ automated manual transmission has now been replaced with the seven-speed Sportshift™ II. With an additional gear, closer ratios, lower final drive and a quicker, refined shift quality, this new gearbox designed and manufactured specifically for Aston Martin provides faster and more precise shifts, optimises acceleration and delivers a sporting driving experience.
Quicker steering, bigger brakes and wider tyres have all been fitted to further enhance the V8 Vantage’s class-leading poise and make it even more responsive and exciting to drive. A new steering column installation, re-valved power-steering pump and a quicker ratio of 15:1 compared to 17:1 on the previous model ensure the new V8 Vantage steers with even greater precision, handles with more agility and provides more feedback for a completely engaging drive.
The revised V8 Vantage together with the rest of the range is available to order now from Aston Martin’s global dealer network.
