The new 2018 Aston Martin Vantage utilises a high performance 4-litre V8 Twin Turbo engine, generating an output of 510 horsepower at 6000rpm and 685Nm from 2000-5000rpm. The basis of this engine has been provided by Mercedes-AMG as part of the company’s successful ongoing relationship. Aston Martin Engineers have worked to ensure that this engine maintains the unique AML character and ‘feel’ that Aston Martins are renowned for.
With a dry weight of 1530kg this gives the Vantage formidable power-to-weight and torque-to-weight ratios – something vividly demonstrated whenever the throttle is squeezed. Detailed tuning of the induction, exhaust and engine management systems has given the Vantage a truly intoxicating character and soundtrack.
Maximum speed 195mph; 0-60mph in 3.5 seconds
