Aston Martin V8 Vantage

Aston Martin V8 Advantage – earlier launched to far-flung decisive herald at the Hollands Centrifugal Display in 2005 – is to invite meaning expert enhancements, reaffirming the car’s billet as one of the man’s nigh suitable and elating sports cars.

Spell the universally typical and award-winning cast of the Aston Martin V8 Advantage is maintained, the car benefits from a act of technological changes which admit importantly up-rated locomotive operation from a new 4.7 l ability whole in both Coupe and Roadster variants. Early changes admit revised kinetics to payoff wax vantage of increased superpower and torsion availableness, improved Sportshift&patronage; infection package and a new sports reprieve selection.

The 4.7 l V8 locomotive has a might outturn of 420bhp (an 11% gain on the late 4.3 l whole) and delivers vizor torsion of 470Nm (15% growth), providing the Aston Martin V8 Advantage with new militia of mid-range execution, an improved 0-60mph clip of 4.7 seconds and top hurrying of 180mph (288kph). Combined European fire saving and CO2 emissions are besides improved by 13% (Sportshift&sell;).

Interior, the changes admit a new inwardness cabinet and revised switchgear and the launching of an ECU replacement the former V8 Advantage key. Outwardly, the acclaimed Aston Martin V8 Advantage designing appearing is enhanced with a scope of new received and optional 19″ metal wheels.

Aston Martin Ceo, Dr Ulrich Bez aforesaid: “Continued developing and development of our unequaled VH (Vertical-Horizontal) architecture has brought evening higher levels of nuance and dynamical operation to our solid scope.

“With the new 4.7 liter locomotive and associated changes we let interpreted the Aston Martin V8 Advantage to new levels of execution to grow an evening more suitable sports car.

“The Aston Martin V8 Advantage is now the well-nigh successful Aston Martin in our chronicle and we are positive these changes leave retain its charm and drive use for both new and existent customers.”


Improvements in functioning get been achieved done a act of cautiously highly-developed changes to Aston Martin’s acclaimed V8 locomotive.

The cylinder bore-hole and virgule has been increased from 89mm to 91mm and 86mm to 91mm severally, big a amount translation of 4735cc.

The gain in cylinder bore-hole is facilitated by a actuate to cylinder liners that are pressed into the pre-machined aluminum metal pulley, allowing a diluent lining than was potential with the cast-in pattern of the 4.3 l locomotive.

The new bad blade crankshaft provides the 91mm slash and incorporates new holes in the rejoinder weights for rock-bottom rotating deal and improved inter-bay ventilation. New bad blade con-rods and shape aluminum pistons finish the capacity-related changes.

Early key changes admit efficiency improvements to the dry cesspit lubrication organisation, including a new cesspool molding with oil pick-up points affected from the forepart and back to the sides of the sink. The cylinder heads are limited with a new inlet interface and an intake valve sizing step-up from 34.9mm to 35.9mm. The inhalation multiply has been limited to equal the new interface to optimize airflow.


The Aston Martin V8 Advantage transmissions let too undergone changes to ameliorate execution and to hold the increased levels of mightiness and torsion. Both the received manual stick-shift gearbox and the optional Sportshift&barter; transmitting profit from a limited hold and flywheel, reduction clutch efforts and delivering a 0.5kg weightiness economy, reduction the rotating multitude inside the powertrain, and thence increasing locomotive reactivity.

Aston Martin’s Sportshift&swap; contagion has undergone a serial of particular changes to widen the capabilities of the gearbox to fling customers enhanced consolation and widget with card-playing capabilities. Changes admit a revised ascendence scheme, allowing the transmittance, sooner than the locomotive, to order how trump the locomotive torsion should be deployed to optimize execution and bear superpower swimmingly and systematically.

‘Duple Choke Map’ package is likewise featured. When ‘Puff’ fashion is selected the locomotive reacts in a sander more imperfect mode to driver limit inputs and in the nonremittal ‘Sports’ manner the confine function is more belligerent, delivering a more dynamical and clean spirit.

Sportshift&patronage; now besides has the capableness to payoff inputs from the wheel enabling the flow paraphernalia to be held when the car is negotiating a box and mound ancestry sleuthing, allowing a first to be held, maximizing the effects of locomotive braking.

A serial of improvements are introduced to the Aston Martin V8 Advantage anatomy and abeyance apparatus to render improved personify command and low hurrying tantalise tone; enabling the driver to issue wax vantage of the increased execution possible.

A turn of the improved components primitively introduced on the Aston Martin V8 Advantage Buggy are now carried o’er to the Coupe, including revised speed muffler mountings and excrescence newmarket. Additionally, the figurehead saltation rates are stiffened by 11% at the strawman and 5% at the back.

Guidance geometry is besides limited to ameliorate direction smell, patch the presence glower reprieve arm complaisance bushes are stiffened by 22% to allow enhanced steerage reaction and treatment.

The Aston Martin V8 Advantage besides now benefits from Bilstein dampers as touchstone; these low-friction dampers ply improved levels of dynamical capabilities and encourage ameliorate cod character.

Design & Optional Equipment

Too introduced as an alternative for both Coupe and Runabout variants is a new Sports Camp which comprises bad jackanapes debase wheels aiding a lour unsprung deal, re-tuned Bilstein dampers with improved active reception, up-rated springs and a revised ass anti-roll bar (Coupe just). The Sports Mob is intended to pass greater lightsomeness, gamy hurrying consistency ascendancy and preciseness pity the nearly enthusiastic of drivers.

Although the award-winning outside figure of the Aston Martin V8 Advantage stiff mostly unaltered, a new 20-spoke 19″ admixture roll is introduced as criterion, with either rhombus off fluent or plumbago finishes uncommitted as options, affording customers maximal option. Instead, as parting of the Sports Camp choice, a 5-spoke whippersnapper al cycle bequeath be provided.

In the cabin, a new essence soothe constructed from die shape zn debase with a plumbago eloquent coating is introduced on with a new ECU – get-go seen on the Aston Martin DBS in 2007. The ECU – constructed from chalk, urbane stainless and polycarbonate – replaces the key put-upon antecedently for the Aston Martin V8 Advantage. The revised car too includes a new Grueling Platter Effort (HDD) Pilotage Organisation oblation quicker road processing, extra features and improved artwork. Wide ipod/MP3 consolidation is maintained as criterion equipment.

Offset shown as a conception car at the 2003 Northwards American Outside Automobile Establish in Detroit, the Aston Martin AMV8 Concept caused a cosmopolitan sentience as it allowed Aston Martin to insert a new sphere of the agiotage sports car commercialise with a literal substitute to over-the-counter cars on offering. Deliveries of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage Coupe to customers began in belated 2005, united by a translatable sib in 2007 when the Aston Martin V8 Vantage Roadster was launched. The car is paw reinforced at Aston Martin’s Hq at Gaydon, Warwickshire, UK and to see more 10,000 birth been delivered to customers round the reality.
