At the New Zealand unveiling of the new Aston Martin Vantage
The Aston Martin Vantage has always been synonymous with performance. It’s a staunch British sports car that has the style and ‘voice’ to both drop jaws and turns heads – so the fervent attention from press and public at the NZ unveiling of the all-new Vantage was inevitable.
The withdrawn silk revealed a vehicle of intense beauty with an underline predatory instinct. Its crafted styling and attention to detail, (inside and out) is instantly apparent, yet look closer and you’ll begin to see the performance car aerodynamics that underpins the vehicle’s racing DNA.
Under its low pitched clamshell bonnet lies a 4L, V8 twin-turbo heart, that produces 310 kW and 685 Nm, which when paired with the Vantage’s eight-speed ZF gearbox, will propel you from 0-100km/h in around 3.6 seconds – all with that distinctive, visceral Aston Martin exhaust soundtrack.
Being there to watch the silk come off and lick the paintwork is one thing, but we’ll be camping outside the Aston Martin showroom in the hope of being given the keys to test drive – who’s up for joining us?
