2015 Aston Martin Vantage | Review, Price, Interior, Exterior, Engine – Welcome to Neocarsuv.com, we will provide the latest information about the Aston Martin Vantage. 2015 Aston Martin Vantage concept is one brand new car from Aston Martin that was released in 2015. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2015 Aston Martin Vantage.
Now, the 2015 Aston Martin V12 Vantage S raps an exotic soundtrack, and delivers unsubtle performance in a gentlemanly way. The Aston Martin Vantage is the ultra-luxury automaker’s most sporty offering, and its smallest car. It’s also the least expensive, but with muscular V8 Vantage models priced from about $120,000 and topping out at the V12 Vantage S’s base price near $185,000, it’s not what you’d call inexpensive.
For that price, drivers get one of the most exclusive sports cars on the road, one with a choice between a powerful V-8 engine and a thrilling V-12 that is one of the car world’s sheer aural delights. Either is very quick, but the V-12 is downright seductive, with its fantasy-ready soundtrack.
Both Vantages have the same profile, a suggestively low hoodline and sleek, laid-back windshield, with rounded rear haunches that have become Aston’s signature since it started building cars mostly from aluminum. There’s more room for air to circulate on the V12, with more intakes slitted into the hood, and it wears new 10-spoke wheels, a blacked-out roof and a black panel on its exceedingly short decklid. The cabin’s carried over with Aston’s crystal keyfob taking center stage, and metal and Alcantara accents framing a well-organized dash–with carbon-fiber trim on V12s taking on accent colors.
The coupe is set to hit the U.S. market starting from $99,900 before shipping and any taxes, making it nearly $20,000 cheaper than the standard model. Sure, it’s not exactly dirt cheap but, mind you, the V8 Vantage S has similar engine specifications and costs about $30,000 more.
Right before the 2014 Geneva Motor Show kicked off in March we introduced you to the new Aston Martin V8 Vantage N430 , a special edition model that made the V8 Vantage more appealing with slightly more horsepower and a few extras here and there.
The V8 Vantage GT is not just a sugar-coated Aston Martin. Its racing-oriented character is evoked in the cabin as well, where customers will notice machined carbon sill plates and a carbon fiber gear shifter surround as soon as they open the door.
The V8 Vantage and V8 Vantage S come with plenty of standard features, including a 160-watt Aston Martin audio system with six-CD changer; Bluetooth; integrated iPod and USB connectivity; and a 3.5-mm auxiliary input jack. Electrically adjustable sport seats, a full-grain leather interior, organic electroluminescent displays, automatic climate control, rear parking sensors, and power-folding heated exterior mirrors are also standard. Stepping up to the V12 Vantage S brings all of those features plus standard navigation, auto-dimming mirrors, three-position memory seats, and various carbon fiber and titanium interior and exterior accents.
The entire Vantage range shares similar cockpit and seating features, with low-slung but comfortable seats, a wide and relatively simple center stack, and good forward visibility. In all, it’s a nice environment for sporty driving or even extended cruises, but it’s not particularly roomy.
As you’d expect with a high-performance two-door, there’s not a lot of room for luggage or other gear. The trunk is adequate for a weekend getaway at most, and there’s very little storage in the main passenger compartment. Given the Vantage’s objective high-speed touring and sporty weekend driving that’s probably not an issue for most buyers.
From a distance, the V8 Vantage GT might seem like a regular model with a fancier paint, but things are bound to change once you get closer to it. That’s when you start noticing dark-themed details such as the black surrounds for headlamps, taillights and the side windows, as well as a blacked-out grille and a set of graphite-colored alloy wheels.
The standard V8 Vantage hangs on to its 4.7-liter V-8, pegged at 420 horsepower and 346 pound-feet of torque in base trim, lifted to 430 horsepower and 361 pound-feet of torque in the V8 Vantage S. Transmissions are a six-speed manual or a seven-speed, automated manual. The V8 Vantage S manages the 60-mph run in 4.3 seconds with a maximum speed of 190 mph, while the standard V8 Vantage takes 4.9 seconds and tops out at 180 mph.
For an electric experience without lithium-ion batteries, there’s the V12 Vantage S, which replaces the former V-12’s 510 horsepower with the same 565-hp, 6.0-liter V-12 found in Aston’s Vanquish. Torque is rated at 457 pound-feet. The only transmission available is a seven-speed, automated manual. With its extra power, the V12 Vantage S is capable of a top speed of 205 mph and 0-60 mph acceleration in just 3.7 seconds. It has one of the best engine notes in the entire car world; if only the automated manual had the same smooth moves. It’s less juddery than in other applications we’ve driven (Aventador, older BMW M3s), but the lurching that accompanies low-speed gear changes requires a gentle foot on the throttle. It’s much smoother as speeds build in a blast of horsepower: we’ve seen 143 mph without stressing the big twelve in any major way.
Performance-wise, the V8 Vantage GT sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds, faster than the entry-level version, and tops out at 190 miles per hour.
The engine is connected to a six-speed manual gearbox, but Aston Martin also offers a close-ratio seven-speed Sportshift II automated manual transmission for those looking to take their GT to the track.
