2015 ASTON MARTIN VANTAGE: Starting with the V8 Vantage, the 2015 Vantage range consists of the three distinct models utilizing two advanced engines; V8 Vantage, V8 Vantage S and V12 Vantage S, all available in both Coupe and Roadster formats. There is also the stylish Vantage GT special edition that represents the most dramatic expression of V8 Vantage ever created. Ideally proportioned, compact and close to the ground, the long low hood line and sweeping side profile of the Vantage presents balance between beauty and sporting intent. A bold new carbon fiber front grille and optional lightweight forged wheels are features on some of the models, and an advanced aluminum structure sits at the heart of every Aston Martin. The front mid-mounted 4.7-liter V8 engine produces 420 horsepower in the Vantage and 430 in the Vantage S. The powerplant is mated to a six-speed manual gearbox or optional seven-speed ‘Sportshift II’ paddle-operated automated manual transmission and short final-drive ratio delivering exceptional in-gear acceleration. For even greater performance, the Vantage combines its next-generation AM28 V12 engine with the lightest sports car Aston Martin can create. The V12 is linked with the seven-speed automatic, and the rear-wheel drive sports car can reach a top speed of 205 mph. There is a custom exhaust muffler and bypass valve map offered that is combined to create a distinctive and highly vocal exhaust sound. Inside the cockpit, there are two styles of seats offered – Sport and Lightweight – and a choice of Luxmill leather or Alcantara. With high-performance numbers, sporting suspension setting, a superbly responsive steering rack and wide tires, the two-seat Vantage and Vantage S is the benchmark sports car.
