Aston Martin Racing unveils Vantage GTE

Aston Martin Racing unveils Vantage GTE

Power is sent to the rear wheels via an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission, although Aston has confirmed a conventional manual gearbox will be available at a later date. Set as low and as far back in the chassis as possible for a low center of gravity and 50:50 weight distribution, the powerplant delivers 510 metric horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 685 Nm (505 lb-ft) of torque between 2,000 and 5,000 rpm.

Aston Martin took the wraps off the all-new 2019 Vantage this morning, and I'm really liking what I'm seeing. The bodywork - including the massive rear wing, diffuser and front splitter - is mostly made from carbonfibre, helping the racier Vantage hit the 1245kg FIA-regulated weight figure. That's what James Bond drives; that's the one that everyone points to as one of the most handsome cars in the world, and that's the one that's easy to keep track of, with generations named DB1, DB2, DB4 and so on to DB11. While the new auto employs turbocharging, its 4.0-litre V8 comes from AMG, so we reckon it'll titillate racegoers' ears just as much. It features double-wishbone suspension at the front, with multi-link suspension at the rear. Staying true to the traditional sharp-nosed, flat-tailed bullet shape, the Vantage has truly become a contemporary vehicle, boasting a remarkably minimalistic design.

Inside, it's much harder to tell that this is based on the Vantage. As a result, Aston Martin says the cabin is roomier than before, especially when it comes to headroom.

On the outside Aston has gone for an "athletic, predatory stance, while the minimal front and rear overhangs, muscular flanks and broad haunches" - all to visually underline the agility of the auto. Zero to 60 miles per hour happens in 3.6 seconds, an eight-speed ZF automatic is the sole gearbox (good, but a stick would be better) and it's got some innovative new technology at work.

For the first time on an Aston Martin, the new Vantage also features an Electronic Rear Differential. "The infotainment system is controlled via a centrally mounted 8" LCD screen. A stern test straight out of the box for the new Vantage, then, and Aston has gone for tried and tested drivers.

Aston Martin president and CEO Dr Andy Palmer said: "It speaks volumes for the outgoing Vantage that it is the single most successful model in Aston Martin's history". Enhancing performance is a choice of Sport, Sport Plus, and Track modes to tailor the drive even more to suit the driver's needs. Alcantara and leather upholstery round off the luxury interior.

The new Vantage is on sale now with a recommended retail price from £120,900 in the United Kingdom, €154,000 in Germany and $149,995 in the USA.
