Aston Martin Vantage cars – performance with style

Oct 5th 2015 at 4:41 AM

When it comes to powerful, smart, luxury, sports cars, Aston Martin wins the votes. Of course, every Aston Martin car is the epitome of luxury and power that no other model can match up. Every make from this British maker is a great model to drive in. However, an Aston model is not everyone’s cup of tea for the price tag that it carries.

Users have all been in the awe of Aston Martin sports car, but the maker didn’t have anything like a party model. So, they came forward with V8 Vantage. The obviously luxurious model has all the features that this car maker is known for. The engineers kept the 4.7-liter V8 engine under the model plan but considered a redesign for the valved air intake system with slight improvement in the spark strategy. These changes caused to accrue more air to the engine at a higher rpm and also aided to ignite the gasoline more effectively. All these factors together aid to more power generation and more efficiency for superb performance.

With the modifications also came an engine paired to either a seven-speed automated manual or a six-speed manual. The modified engine has the capability to produce 430 horsepower and 361 pound-feet of torque. In addition, engineers designed the engine to reach 0 to 60 in just 4.6 seconds with the capability to touch the top speed of 190 mph.

Engineers also left no stone unturned to ensure that V8 stops and goes well. They got inspiration from GT racing series and tried to incorporate high-performance brakes and quick-ratio steering rack. Amid all the changes, the maker also tried to keep the price maintained to fit most of the pockets.

An uplift comes with the model Aston Martin V12 vantage S – where ‘S’ stands for ‘extreme in its nature.’ The basic bone remains the same, but the car has been designed to pounce with its wide stance and pronounced rear wheel arches. Different from the basic structure is its carbon-fibre grille inset – which is black in the model. Across the hood are arrayed extensive vents for the V-12, which are accented in red-tinted carbon-fibre (optional). The interior has a driver-oriented cockpit and a tall centre stack having two crucial buttons – one for the adjustment of the steering response and setting the adaptive damping to modes: Track, Sport and Normal; and second one to toggle a Sport mode for quicker throttle responses and shifts.
