Aston Martin Vantage
The premiere, the Aston Martin Vantage, a sports car with an aluminum body on the V / H platform, the same platform as the Aston Martin Vanquish, took place in early 2005 in Geneva. Production started in December of the same year. The car was going to hand, equipment was made to order. The whole model range is Aston Martin.
There were several sets of Aston Martin Vantage. The most interesting model is the Vantage GT3, which will be released in March 2015. As one might expect, its design was designed with a focus on the racing option. That’s why the novelty will be flaunting through the streets of cities with its developed aerodynamic dodger, shining with carbon splitter and massive anti-wing at the back, extended side sills and diffuser, as well as air intakes in the front wings. The 19-inch light alloy rims have been fitted with an equally interesting version of Michelin’s Pilot tires. These and some other improvements have reduced the weight of the coupe by 100 kg.
Absolutely all Aston Martin cars are assembled by hand. This is not an easy tribute to the old days, but also a guarantee of high quality performance. All Aston Martin Vantage control and audio systems were also assembled by several craftsmen. To be sure, you just need to sit in the Aston Martin V12 Vantage, GT3 or any other vehicle, take the three-spoke steering wheel, change a bunch of settings using the electronics that are always there. All the switches and controls are so optimally positioned that even the most grumpy and picky car enthusiasts will enjoy driving.
If you look under the hood of the Vantage GT3, you’ll see an upgraded 6-litre V12 engine. It can easily produce 600 horsepower and as much as 625 NM of torque. In comparison, its predecessor’s power output was 573 “horses” and 620 Nm. Almost forgotten – Vantage’s older brother is V12 Vantage S.
The acceleration has also been reduced to a hundred – now it takes 3.7 seconds against 3.9 seconds. The maximum speed of the new product in 2015 reached 297 km/hour. Aston Vantage 2015 has been equipped with an adaptive suspension, shock absorbers and a friction differential for comfortable handling. The transmission here is robotic and seven-band Graziano.

The new Aston Martin has once again shown that the British are not standing still, but continue to develop the range of premium cars. The assembly is still manual, the quality is on top, the technical characteristics and design are pleasantly surprising. Of course, and the price of such cars is appropriate.
