The V8 Vantage has a front-mounted 4.7-litre engine; as it happens, 4.7 is also the exact number of seconds it takes to reach 60mph from a standing start. The V8 provides maximum torque of 470Nm at 5000rpm; however, the rear mid-mounted manual transmission (a Sportshift automated-manual transmission is also available) supplies an appropriate level of thrust at all speeds. Putting the car into "Sport" mode provides even more front-wheel grip and rear-wheel traction.
An interior tailored to your personal requirements is as important a part of the Vantage experience as its engine and the exterior styling. Full-grain, electrically adjustable leather seats, a range of in-car entertainment systems and convenience features such as folding heated side mirrors come as standard; but the cabin of each Vantage is hand-crafted and can be customised in any way you wish.
2016 model upgrades include the updated AMi II Infotainment system which offers improved driver interface controls with additional vehicle information. Updates also include the introduction of a new style fascia, this stylish one-piece console now flows through the centre of the car, offering a more useable interface for both the driver and the passenger.
