The Vantage sold within the A. S. : the V8 Vantage and V8 Vantage s ( and the roadster variants ), and therefore the v12 Vantage s, that replaces the normal V12 Vantage when it arrives just like a 2015 model within the 1st quarter of 2014. America doesnt acquire the V12 Vantage roadster. Different new features for 2014 embrace a sport button on V8 Vantage and V8 Vantage S models, and an optional sports exhaust for our V8 Vantage ( normal on v8 Vantage s ).
Beginning from around $120, 000 and moving upwards of $185, 000 in prime trims, the Vantage will have a robust normal feature set, together with last years updates, that brought automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers, but a backup camera.
Beneath the hood as to the Vantage vary youll realize the bottom 4. 7-liter v-8, rated at 420 horsepower and 346 pound-feet of torque, upgraded to firmly 430 horspeower and 361 pound-feet of torque in v8 Vantage s trim. The V12 Vantage gets s a 565-horsepower, 6. 0-liter V-12 engine rated at 457 pound-feet of torque. All models drive the rear wheels merely, via a selection the most six-speed manual transmission or perhaps a seven-speed sportshift ii ( sportshift iii within the case as to the V12 Vantage S ) automated manual transmission.
More power should also be on the table, with the current 4.7-liter V-8 and 6.0-liter V-12 engines remaining but undergoing a major overhaul to not only produce more power but also fewer emissions. There has been some talk of a return to six-cylinder engines at Aston Martin, but apart from some hints from CEO Dr. Ulrich Bez there haven’t been any other details suggesting it.
The minimal changes to the test-mule make sense as we’re only in the very early stages of the development phase for the new Vantage, however, it could suggest something we’ve been expecting for a while now.
In fact, most reports suggest the venerable bonded and riveted VH aluminum platform underpinning Aston Martin’s entire lineup (not including the limited edition One-77 supercar) will be revamped for the new Vantage as well as the DB9 successor, along with the current engine offerings.
What does that mean for the new Vantage? First and foremost the VH platform should be made significantly lighter in order to improve acceleration, braking, handling and gas mileage. Engineers are reportedly looking at a 10-15 percent weight loss for the new Vantage, which could mean up to 350 pounds shed from the current model’s mass.
