CALLED THE baby As­ton by en­thu­si­asts, the As­ton Mar­tin Van­tage is revered by many. The com­pany has now re­vealed an all-new ver­sion of the model. The new Van­tage takes its de­sign in­spi­ra­tion from the DB10 con­cept, the car ex­clu­sively cre­ated to be James Bond’s part­ner of choice in the movie Spec- tre. Sport­ing an im­pos­ing stance, the com­pany be­lieves that the aero­dy­namic per­for­mance was cen­tral to the de­sign process of the new Van­tage. As ex­pected, the cabin is de­signed to be healthy mix of pre­mium as well as mod­ern. The new Van­tage draws its power from a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 en­gine which de­vel­ops 503bhp and 650Nm of torque, giv­ing it the abil­ity to do the 0-100kmph dash in 3.6 sec­onds straight. It will also be the first As­ton in his­tory to get an elec­tronic rear dif­fer­en­tial to con­trol how much power goes to which wheel. Tech ad­vance­ments in­clude a new adap­tive damp­ing tech­nol­ogy.
