Van­tage

NZ Autocar - - Fyi -

Nat­u­rally, As­ton feels the GT8 is the most driver-fo­cused V8 Van­tage yet, thanks to tweaks made to ride and han­dling char­ac­ter­is­tics. Ev­i­dently it in­cor­po­rates de­vel­op­ments from the GT4 race car, for it has to be cred­i­ble on track, but is still a road car in essence. Another spe­cial edi­tion vari­ant is due to launch this year, to counter lim­ited runs from other sports car mak­ers like Porsche.

Proper new­bies com­ing from the Brit in­clude the DB11, a much softer rid­ing GT than the DB9, and the DBX cross­over due be­fore 2020. The DB11 kicks off a six-year plan and every nine months there­after new prod­uct will emerge, ac­cord­ing to Re­ich­man.
