New Aston Martin Vantage GTE Le Mans challenger launched

22 November 2017

All of this sounds great, but there's one downside to this performance - the engine comes backed exclusively with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

However, in the Vantage, where the block is positioned so far back from the front axle that the weight distribution is a ideal 50:50 split, that powerplant, matted to an eight-speed automatic transmission, is half a second quicker off the mark, serves up over 510hp and 685Nm of torque and a top speed of 195mph.

Aston Martin has taken the covers off its new version of the Vantage sports vehicle.

The shell generates significant downforce which again is a route Aston Martin has not previously pursued with its road cars. Motorsport diffusers are a bit more hardcore than your average car's diffuser, and that's pretty damn evident here - the thing sticks out for days behind the rear bumper.

Still not sure about the new Aston Martin Vantage?

A new exterior look is the most obvious change to Aston Martin's entry-level two-seater model, which will arrive on United Kingdom roads in February 2018 and replace a vehicle described by company CEO Andy Palmer as "the single most successful model in Aston Martin's history".

The new Vantage goes on sale immediately, priced from £120,900, and brings a twin-turbo V8 engine and a new level of technology to the popular Porsche 911 rival, which has proved to be Aston's best-selling model to date.

She said that Simmons then called her, they spoke for 27 minutes, and throughout the conversation, he never denied her claims. Russell Simmons is now facing sexually assault allegations along with his buddy movie and music video director Brett Ratner .

Aston Martin have used a combination of rotary and toggle style controls. "This new product is going to make people fall in love with this auto".

The Vantage also includes a new-to-Aston electronic rear differential, adaptive dampers and torque vectoring system to increase cornering capability. The design of the diffuser creates an area of low pressure air, while simultaneously preventing turbulence generated by the rear wheels from disrupting the flow of air exiting centrally from beneath the rear of the vehicle. The three driving modes are Sport, Sport Plus and Track.

The Vantage is the second of seven new models Aston Martin is promising to introduce in the next few years.

The new Vantage is now on sale in the United Kingdom, with pricing set at £120,900.
