Discover New Vantage
PURE & ENGAGING
The heart of Vantage AMR remains Aston Martins potent new alloy, 4-litre twin-turbo V8 engine. Set low and as far back in the chassis as possible for optimal centre-of-gravity and near perfect 50:50 weight distribution, this high performance, high efficiency engine develops 510PS at 6000rpm and 625Nm from 2000-5000rpm, propelling Vantage AMR from 0-60mph in 3.9 seconds and 0-62mph in 4.0 seconds*. As with the existing Vantage model, top speed is met at 195 mph*. However, while performance is still at the forefront of all Vantage models, its delivery in the Vantage AMR is very different. Vantage AMR is equipped with a motorsport-inspired 7-speed transmission developed by Graziano, featuring a dog-leg first gear. Inside, the driver is presented with the opportunity to deliver each gear with both precision and finesse via a hand-stitched leather-clad gearstick. Second to seventh gears those that will be used most frequently when on the move are positioned in a traditional double H-pattern configuration. To ensure a more rewarding and engaging experience expected of a manual, Vantage AMRs transmission is mated to a limited-slip differential, tuned and calibrated by Aston Martins leading dynamics team, headed by Chief Engineer Matt Becker, from the teams base at Silverstone Race Circuit.
Vantage AMRs manual transmission also features AMSHIFT. The system, which is driver selectable, uses clutch, gear position and prop shaft sensors, together with finely-tuned engine management program to mimic the technique of heel-and-toe downshifts; the act of blipping the throttle while braking and changing gear to allow smoother deceleration and cornering as a result. AMSHIFT also offers the capability of full-throttle upshifts for maximum smoothness and minimal interruption in acceleration. Removing the automatic transmission and including carbon ceramic brakes as standard not only creates a purer driver experience, but also assists in removing 95kg of weight. Known for its handling prowess already, Vantage AMR pushes the boundaries further and continues to exploit Aston Martins latest adaptive damping system incorporating Skyhook technology - with Sport, Sport + and Track modes to ensure the cars character can be tuned to the drivers preference or road conditions.
Limited to 200-units, Vantage AMR is available in five designer specifications. 141 of those 200 will be available in either Sabiro Blue, Onyx Black, China Grey or White Stone. In contrast, the final 59 will be crafted in celebration of the 60th anniversary since Aston Martins triumphant 1959 24 Hours of Le Mans victory with DBR1. Named Vantage 59, this fixed specification features a Stirling Green and Lime exterior paint scheme and Dark Knight leather and alcantara interior, finished with a signature AMR lime stripe and stitch.
A NEW BREED IS BORN
The heart of Vantage AMR remains as Aston Martins potent 4-litre twin-turbo V8 engine, propelling Vantage AMR from 0-60mpg in just 3.9 seconds and 0-62mph in 4.0 seconds. While performance is at the forefront of all Vantage models, Vantage AMR is a very different breed, delivering the involvement and driver engagement that only a manual can offer.
The Pulsing Heart
Typically, as a car gets faster, it requires more cooling, larger brakes and stronger suspension, which inevitably results in increased weight. The DBS Superleggera Volante begs to differ. Naturally it has been upgraded in all areas required to handle its phenomenal performance, but not by merely adding more of the same, instead using the finest, strongest lightweight materials.
Equipped with a motorsport-inspired seven-speed dog-leg transmission, Vantage AMR is designed to deliver a focused and engaging driver experience. AMSHIFT ensures maximum smoothness and minimal interruption in acceleration, while the limited-slip differential combine to deliver one of the most exhilarating driving experiences on offer.
Immersive and Focused
The distinctive cockpit feel of the interior is one of absolute focus and functionality. A lower driving position creates a more immersive experience, intimately connecting the driver with the car and the road ahead.
Athletic Poise and Agility
Vantage is raw and instinctive, unwavering in its singular purpose: to overwhelm the senses through its world-renowned design, agile performance and dedicated craftsmanship. Its heart beats with a high powered 4.0 litre twin-turbocharged V8, producing that visceral Aston Martin roar. A rare breed and a statement of independence on the road, Vantage embodies all that is beautiful in our performance sports car range.
