Aston Martin Vantage 2018: continue the development of the new generation

To find the last time our photographers
managed to catch the new Aston Martin
Vantage 2018
during a testing session, we look back to full
summer of this year when the engineers of the british manufacturer decided to
bring a prototype to the Nürburgring to see what it was his
behavior in the face the curves of this legendary German track.

The Aston Martin Vantage 2018 is evidence from the north of Sweden.

Now, a few months after, Aston Martin moves his “center of operations” in the north of Europe, more specifically Sweden, to to continue with the development of the new generation of the Vantage. As the unit photographed above, we find many elements of provisional as well as a large number of camouflage present, especially on the front.

Defined as a “baby DB11”, it is clear that will be an Aston Martin DB11 ‘shortened’ with a distance between axles reduced and a shorter length as well as a behind cut. Will be mounted on a shortened version of the new aluminium platform that underpins the new DB11. Unlike its “big brother” with an interior 2+2, the new Vantage will be a genuine two-seater.

And the same thing will happen on an aesthetic level, as they will present a great influence for the new DB11. Both in technology as a technician will be closely related to both models. And, although your image will have some influence,

Will there be a most powerful option above the V8 engine? Therefore, although it is not confirmed, the brand is considering to add the new V12 engine of 5.2 liters as an option top of range.

Another of the aspects that are still in the air is the transmission, as it is not yet clear if the Aston Martin Vantage 2018 will be available exclusively along a gearbox six-speed manual or there will also be an optional automatic transmission.

¿When it will come to the market? The first to make an act of presence will be the Aston Martin Vantage 2018 with bodywork coupe, whose launch is planned for the autumn of next year. However, to see his “brother” convertible will have to wait until nine more months, since they not debut in society until the year 2018.
