Well, that didn't take long. Just a few days after the official launch the car was spotted in Greenwich (CT). The V8 Vantage is on a promotion tour in the USA, and Miller Motorcars is one of the first dealerships to promote the new car. The dealership decided to bring the car to a popular restaurant where a lot of affluent people like to dine and showcase the car, a perfect spot to win over some potential customers.
The mission for the new Vantage was simple. Make a car as exciting and engaging as possible without compromising its everyday usability or making it too challenging for drivers of all abilities. The new V8 Vantage has a maximum speed 195mph and reaches 60mph in 3.5 seconds. Aston Martin uses for the first time the new Electronic Rear Differential and their E-Diff and Dynamic Torque Vectoring linked to Dynamic Stability Control System. This allows the owner to drive the car at ease on the road and track in three different modes, all designed for the perfect driving experience.
Aston Martin President Chief Executive Officer, Dr Andy Palmer said: “It speaks volumes for the outgoing Vantage that it is the single most successful model in Aston Martin’s history. Creating a worthy successor has been a challenge to relish and a huge source of motivation. I’m enormously excited by what we’ve created: a new Vantage that’s more explicit in looks and intent, wrapping heart-pounding performance and dazzling dynamics into an everyday usable package. A true sports car with a sharper look and a keener dynamic edge, the new Vantage is the Aston Martin pure driving machine enthusiasts have been waiting for.”
The new Vantage is on sale now with a recommended retail price from £120,900 in the UK, €154,000 in Germany and $149,995 in North America. Deliveries are scheduled to begin during the second quarter of 2018.
