The new 2019 Aston Martin Vantage is simply a heavenly ride no matter where it actually comes from. While Aston is stile one the UK’s most beloved brands, even if its taken on a German flare.
The new 2019 Aston Marin Vantage is pushed by a sweet twin turbo V8, that’s capable of pushing out over five hundred pounds of torque along with a horse power peak in the neighbourhood of five hundred. The engine which was borrowed from the Mercedes-Benz AMG family of a twin turbocharged four litre V8 engine that will get you were you need to be very, very quickly with tests showing that you should get from zero to sixty in, oh, how about three point six seconds. The German built AMG V-8 engine will come with its eight speed automatic transmission and a carbon fibre drive shaft and paddle shift ZF units along with an automatic torque converter, which does’t miss a beat at all even under the most stressful of conditions.
The company chose to buy its engines from the team over at the AMG division of Mercedes-Benz, and while some would question the decision to out source the pure guts of the Aston Martin Vantage, most agree that it was a good call so that the company could focus on other necessities in and around the car itself. This includes and insanely wide variety of customized options for the interior and exterior of the vehicle and will allow the buyer to choose from over forty exterior colors, another sixteen colors for the interior base and a whopping thirty five for stitching, carpets and seatbelts. Everything else is, as you would expect in the Aston fashion where the glass buttons are real glass and everything else is as it should be. The infotainment system, which the the team at Aston also purchased from the Mercedes-Benz AMG team is purely high end and comfortable to use, but does feel a bit out place in the rest of the high end interior.
While its hard to justify anything that costs over $150k, we have to admit that this might be one of those times as the 2019 Aston Martin Vantage feels like it might actually be a good deal.
