V8 Vantage Coupé

Race-bred pedigree with extra power and torque

Aston Martin’s V8 Vantage Coupé is a drivers’ car that offers a blend of performance and understated style. At 4385mm (172.5") long and weighing 1630kg, the V8 Vantage is one of the manufacturer’s smaller vehicles – but the strength of its delicately balanced frame gives it the poise needed to handle the power of the 4.7 litre V8 engine.

The lithe exterior styling of the V8 Vantage Coupé is accompanied by a surprising degree of comfort and practicality on the inside. Despite the car’s modest size, a 300-litre boot (with a foldaway parcel shelf) gives significantly more luggage space than most other performance cars. Occupants also enjoy a substantial amount of leg and knee room.

Overview

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.
