The Aston Martin V8 Vantage was the second all-new Aston to be built at their Gaydon headquarters. Based around the already proven VH (Vertical and horizontal) platform. The V8 offered performance and dimensions similar to that of the Porsche 911 its closest competitor. The coupe was launched back in 2005 followed two years later by the roadster version. The second generation of the Vantage was introduced in 2008 and showcased the new 4.7 litre V8 engine. The new 4.7 produced 420 bhp, 40bhp more than the outgoing 4.3 litre engine, this in turn increased performance giving improved drivability with greater mid range torque. This engine coupled with a six speed gearbox and rear transaxle setup made for one of the most balanced sports cars on the market with a near 50/50 weight distribution. As with all hand built Aston Martins only the finest materials were used.
