The new Aston Martin Vantage has officially been released... and its lime green!
The Aston Martin Vantage follows on from the DB11 model and rivals the Porsche 911. It is lighter and faster than the previous model and shares barely any of the same features, in fact, 70% of the features of this model being brand spanking new. It has a new look and is fitted with the latest and greatest car technology. The bullet–shaped car features a sharp nose and a flat tail inspired by the DB11.
The body is made of aluminum with better aerodynamics due to the front splitter and rear diffuser that directs airflow underneath the car to create more downforce. The side gills placed behind the front wheel were created to release pressure in the wheel arches.
The aerodynamics are not its only impressive feature. The car is fitted with a 4 litre–twin turbo V8 pushing out 685 Nm of torque. This gets the lime brute from 0 to 62 mph in 3,6 seconds and tops out at 195mph. The engine is placed further back in the chassis than usual to create a 50:50 weight distribution, comes with electric rear differentials and 20 inch alloy wheels. The 1530 kg weight of the Vantage is significantly less than the DB11 and puts it into Porsche 911 territory.
The interior is fitted with heatable dark leather seats that have lime green stitching and a DB11 inspired digital dashboard. As if lime green wasn't loud enough, the car comes with a thumping sound system while the entire look has been updated to give it its own unique character.
The Vantage is priced at €120 900, €25 000 more expensive than the Porsche 911 GTS.
