The new Aston Martin Vantage Coupe 4.0 V8 Twin Turbo is a car that needs to be driven. It’s stronger and lighter than the DB11 and more agile, more in touch with the road than its predecessor. But the only way to find out is to take the wheel for yourself.
Aston Martin Bristol has a stunning example just waiting to be driven on the open road. Finished in Special Q Order Viridian Green with a Pure Black Alcantara interior, this beautiful beast of a sports car is more aggressive in styling and dynamics than the old Vantage.
It’s got a scoping shark-nose grill at the front, narrow LED headlights and rear lights which envelop and wrap around the back. The chassis is 20kg lighter than its predecessor and 30 per cent more rigid. It’s also 10 percent more rigid than that of the DB11.
There’s an eight-speed ZF gearbox. Once your foot touches the accelerator the Vantage will sprint from 0-60 in just 3.6 seconds accompanied by the satisfying and unique bark of the V8 engine.
Aston Martin Bristol’s very special Aston Martin Vantage Coupe 4.0 V8 Twin Turbo has been fitted with a host of factory option packs:
Then there’s the optional factory extras including an Aston Martin premium audio system, deep pile carpet mats, satin carbon fibre twill trim Inlays and a dark chrome jewellery pack.
The Vantage logo is embroidered on the seats, there are aluminium treadplates protecting the door sills and just to finish the exterior look, it’s fitted with black brake calipers, gloss black mirror caps, a gloss black roof panel, a matte black side gill, matt black exhaust tailpipes and 20” Y-Spoke Graphite Duotone wheels.
There’s also a perimeter parking camera and an AM Tracking System - just about everything you need to get the absolute best out of this incredible car.
It really is driver-focused. Aston Martin has moved the familiar strip of engine and transmission control buttons downwards and closer to the driver. The iconic Start/Stop button hovers above your left hand and changing the differential and sport modes can be done on the steering wheel, allowing you to make changes while keeping both hands on the wheel.
Prices for the Aston Martin Vantage start at £120,900 and if early interest is anything to go by, you’ll need to be quick off the mark to secure yours. Call into Aston Martin Bristol to find out more about this exhilarating car and book a test drive for yourself.
