recently I had as Aston Martin had prepared a new vehicle exclusive use in the circuit. The style of the Vantage GT12, but a little more civilized with the use of a mechanical V8. Today has been presented to the Aston Martin Vantage WG8, which inherits directly the DNA of competition of the firm Gaydon. The keys of this model for success will be the increase of power and the weight reduction.
Although its basis is the V8 Vantage S, has little in common with it. The aesthetic has been radicalized and now perfectly emulates the Aston Martin V8 Vantage GTE competition, with the poses in the images. It has been worked on the aerodynamics to improve their performance and excel in this aspect the rear spoiler fixed, the front splitter, enlarged, or the rear diffuser with the outputs of the exhaust built. There will be an optional Aero Pack.
As we said, the Vantage WG8 has managed to reduce your weight 100 kg with regard to the model of street. There are a total 1.510 kg thanks to the use of lightweight materials as the roof of carbon fiber, the moon rear of polycarbonate or titanium exhaust. In spite of this diet cannot dispense other elements that add convenience such as air conditioning, the browser or an audio system, 160 W.
One of the points that we are most interested in is the engine aspirated V8 4.7-liter. It is the same as that in the V8 Vantage S, but for this occasion, the power has increased up to the 446 CV. Do not tell us your engine torque, although it does say that they will be able to choose between a manual change of sesis speeds and other auto Sportshift seven relationships with camshaft behind the wheel. There have been detailed the benefits, although you will be quite above that of the series.
The Aston Martin Vantage WG8 will come in a shot very limited, as only will produce 150 units. His older brother, the Vantage GT12 is made 100 units, and it took very little to sell, so we hope that it also runs out quickly. Does your price? In the United Kingdom will depart from the 165.000 pounds, which means a 207.500 euros at the exchange.
