Aston Martin Vantage (V8/V12)
The Aston Martin V8 Vantage was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in 2005. The two-seat, two-door coupe had an aluminum structure. The 4.38 m long car featured a hatchback-like tailgate, with a large luggage rack behind the seats. In addition to the coupe, a convertible known as the V8 Vantage Roadster was introduced later that year. The V8 Vantage was powered by a 4.3L (4,280cc) quad-cam 32-valve V8. However, models produced after 2008 had a 4.7L V8. The cylinder block and heads, crankshaft, connecting rods, pistons, camshafts, intake and exhaust manifolds, lubrication system and engine management were all designed in-house by Aston Martin and the engine assembled by hand at the AM factory in Cologne, Germany. The original V8 Vantage could accelerate from 0 to 97 km/h in 4.8 seconds. The V8 Vantage had a retail price of €104,000 in 2006. Included was a six-speed manual transmission and leather upholstery for the seats, dashboard, steering wheel and gear knob. A new six-speed manual transmission called Sportshift was later introduced as an option.
On December 11, 2007, Aston Martin unveiled a concept car based on the V8 Vantage as part of the opening of its own design studio. Known as the V12 Vantage RS, this model featured the AM11 V12 engine from the DBS and produced 510hp. Weighing 1695kg, this car accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds and has a top speed of 310 km/h. Additions include a new rear diffuser, retractable rear wing that can be raised or lowered and carbon-ceramic brakes. The trunk lid and vented hood are also made of carbon fiber to reduce the weight of the car. In early 2008, Aston Martin's CEO confirmed production of the V12 Vantage RS for mid-2009. Prototypes of the V12 Vantage RS appeared in April 2008 before Aston Martin unveiled the production version simply called the V12 Vantage in 2009. For the US market, According to Aston Martin, some subtle changes to the car's structure are necessary to comply with North and South American regulations. In addition to these improvements, the company announced a new Carbon Black version of the V12 Vantage exclusive to the US market.
