Performance

The heart of Vantage beats with a 4.0 litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine. Impressive acceleration of 0-62 mph in 3.6 seconds and a speed of up to 195 mph deliver raw athleticism and an enticing performance feel. Vantage GT4 is designed specifically as an entry-level customer GT race car, with more than 40 Vantage GT4s already racing competitively globally. Making its victorious debut in the 2019 ADAC TOTAL 24 Hours (N24), Vantage GT4 dominated the SP8T class for close-to-production vehicles in the legendary Nürburgring Nordschleife-based endurance race.

Design

Like the archetypal hunter, everything has been finely tuned for a purpose. Sculptural forms create an athletic predatory stance, while muscular flanks and broad haunches express the agility and dynamism inherent to the car. The signature ultra-slim rear light graphic illuminates the full-width of the tailgate, accentuated by the flick in the Vantage’s tail. It provocatively expresses the car’s animalistic character in what is set to become an iconic symbol of performance. The distinctive cockpit feel of the interior is one of absolute focus and functionality. A lower driving position creates a more immersive experience, intimately connecting the driver with the car and the road ahead. While Vantage Roadster mirrors the Coupe’s exceptional tactility, pace and cornering performance, the design of the body is very much its own.

Engineering

Our talented engineers sought the ideal foundation for the new Vantage, crafting its frame from lightweight, bonded aluminium. The inherent sporting agility comes from its compact dimensions, an impressive weight of just 1,530kg* and near perfect 50:50 weight distribution. A rigid subframe within this backbone delivers enhanced stability for the suspension. The overwhelming benefit is beautifully responsive control behind the wheel; car and driver connecting symbiotically to deliver unrivaled excitement and dynamic drivability. The suspension has a forged double wishbone design at the front and a multi-link system at the rear. Adaptive damping with sensors on the car detect the prevailing driving conditions, as well as the demands the driver is making of the car.
