Geneva Motor Show: Aston Martin Vantage
A raft of improvements have been confirmed for the updated V8 Vantage presented by Aston Martin at Geneva.
The seven-year old design has been fettled with a bodykit from the Vanquish, including a lower front bumper and added splitter, larger air intake and a rear diffuser.
The 4.7-litre V8 pushing 420bhp remains unchanged, though an optional seven-speed SportShift II gearbox has now replaced the six-speed box, offering quicker and smoother changes to enhance acceleration. 0-62mph takes just 4.2 seconds with a top speed of 190mph to boot.
Wider tyres, bigger brakes and a quicker steering rack will help to make the new Aston corner and stop better than the previous model, while hill start has also been added.
Prices will start at £84,995.
