Year of Manufacture : 2012 | Driven no. of Kms. : NA
There is no other supercar in the market which says Power, Beauty and Soul when you press the ignition. Aston Martin cars are known for their superior performance and outstanding quality. These cars are not just fast but also very comfortable to drive. Aston Martin vehicles are one of the best teams to race at Germany’s Nurburgring competing in the 24 hour race. It has all the abilities to be a Grand Tourer. The looks of the Aston Martin Vantage are jaw dropping and the finesse is splendid. The V8 vantage is very similar to the Aston Martin DB9 in terms of features but is punchier and yes, it also costs less. But the Aston Martin DB9 is a little quicker for the extra bucks you pay. The Aston Martin V8 Vantage shares the same interiors like the Aston Martin DB9’s which are impeccably handcrafted along with the fine leather and metallic trims. The Aston Martin Vantage is a marvelous car to look at and even drive. It has the low stance which makes it look like a sports car but inside it also makes you feel like you are in a sedan with the tremendous comfort offered. The company will offer this car in Coupe and Roadster versions with an “S” variant to both the versions. The car will use a horizontal splitter under the lower front grille in order to increase airflow under the car. A new lower front air dam and bumper set up built from carbon fiber creates a more aggressive look than ever for the front end of the Aston Martin. This also functions to provide more air for the cooling of the new designed front brakes. At the rear end of the car is a more prominent deck lid which the company claims will reduce lift at high speeds. The carbon fibre diffuser will also help airflow from underneath the car. The sporty feel is further enhanced when the driver pushes the sport button on the dash allowing the exhaust bypass valves to open fully and let out a strong Aston Martin V8 rumble. The inside of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage is one of the most exquisite handcrafted cabins in the industry with impeccable level of fit and finish. Once you get into the cabin of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage through its upswing doors you are greeted by the embroidered VANTAGE logos in the carpets and headrests. Aston Martin wanted this car to be more driver-focused with a more involving character overall which is why to increase performance they have also been able to tune the suspension and stability control. Aston Martin builds each of its V8 engines at their facility in Cologne, Germany. The Aston Martin V8 Vantage secured its position as the automakers sportiest model when it was introduced at the 2005 Geneva Motor Show for the 2006 model year and ever since then is has lived up to every expectation a person would want both from inside and outside. It’s a car which makes you want to get in every time you step out of it. The Aston Martin V8 Vantage holds the trump card when it comes to handling. It has better driving dynamics than its rivals and it also has the iconic design of the Aston Martin. While the aluminium platforms are virtually identical to the standard Aston Martin V8 Vantage coupe and roadster models, The British automaker is targeting driving enthusiasts with these heavily upgraded Aston Martin V8 Vantage S variants. The S variants have a more aggressive spark mapping and the ability to take advantage of higher octane fuels. All of the design elements contribute to lowering the coefficient of lift and drag, thus increasing high speed stability.
