The New Vantage, The Successor to a True

Sporting Dynasty

(Hong Kong, February 1, 2018) – Aston Martin has pulled the wraps off the new Vantage for the first time in Hong Kong, providing onlookers with a first glimpse of the British marque’s latest sporting icon. Shown for the first time at Aston Martin Hong Kong, the spectacular new Vantage demands a bold and distinctive design language. Pure, sculptural forms create an athletic, predatory stance, while the minimal front and rear overhangs, muscular flanks and broad haunches express the agility and dynamism inherent within the car. New head and tail lights form dramatic new signatures giving the Vantage unmistakable road presence and contribute to a strong and individual identity within the growing Aston Martin model range. On the inside, new Vantage rejects long, fluid curves in favour of sharp, focussed lines denoting the more aggressive nature of the car. A high waist interior theme and lower driving position creates a more immersive driving experience, and contributes to significant gains in occupant space and headroom. Aerodynamic performance was central to the Vantage design concept: the front splitter directs airflow underneath the car, where a system of fences channels cooling air where it is needed, and also ensures the rear diffuser is fed with clean airflow. The design of the diffuser creates an area of low pressure air, while simultaneously preventing turbulence generated by the rear wheels from disrupting the flow of air exiting centrally from beneath the rear of the car. The heart of the Vantage is Aston Martin’s 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 perfect 50:50 weight distribution, this high erformance, high efficiency engine returns a CO2 figure of *245g/km yet develops 510PS at 6000rpm and 685Nm from 2000-5000rpm. With a dry weight of 1530kg this gives the Vantage formidable power-to-weight and torque-to-weight ratios - something vividly demonstrated whenever the throttle is squeezed.
Detailed tuning of the induction, exhaust and engine management systems has given the Vantage a truly intoxicating character and soundtrack. The Vantage deploys its power and torque to the rear wheels via a rear-mounted ZF eightspeed automatic transmission. Capable of accelerating from 0 to 60mph in 3.5 seconds and on to a maximum speed of 195mph, it employs a suite of integrated electronic systems to offer maximum control and driver enjoyment. The new Vantage’s Electronic Rear Differential (E-Diff) heralds an unprecedented technological upgrade as it analyses and understands the car’s behaviour, and reacts accordingly to direct engine power to the relevant wheel - from fully open to 100% locked in a matter of milliseconds. Being an Aston Martin, the new Vantage features exceptional standard equipment versatility thanks to the In-Car Entertainment system - controlled and viewed via a centrally mounted 8” LCD screen - comprises of the Aston Martin Audio System, Bluetooth® audio and phone streaming, iPod®, iPhone® and USB playback along an integrated satellite navigation system. Aston Martin President & CEO, Dr Andy Palmer said: “Vantage is the single most successful model in Aston Martin’s history. 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 pure driving machine enthusiasts have been waiting for.” Aston Martin Hong Kong Managing Director, Mr Gordon Choy said, “I must say the newest Vantage will take your breath away. Apart from its world-renowned design, its heart beats with a high powered 4.0- litre twin turbo V8 engine, capable of accelerating from 0 to 100km/h in 3.6 seconds and on to a maximum speed of 314kph. Like they said, the Beautiful won’t be tamed.” The new Vantage was launched on 1 February 2018 at Overview Platform, Marco Polo Hotel, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon. The new Vantage is now on sale and priced from HKD 2,480,000* up in Hong Kong. Deliveries are scheduled to begin during the third quarter of 2018.   Back to Home Page
