Aston Martin has dropped a shady picture illustrating the side profile of what we believe is a hardcore Aston Martin Vantage. We won’t have to be delayed much longer for the Aston Martin Vantage to be revealed since the Gaydon-based marque says it will unveil the car on Monday. By the looks of things, we’re tempted to accept that the livery takes after the recently unveiled Vantage Safety Car for the upcoming Formula 1 season.
At the center of the spicy Aston Martin Vantage there should be a familiar twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 developed by AMG. It puts out a fine 503 horsepower and 461 pound-feet (625 Newton-meters) of torque in the Vantage AMR, so there is a really good chance the bump in output would not be significant. We have been hearing rumors that it will be massaged to deliver 528 hp while torque could remain untouched as was the case with the F1 Safety Car.
The teaser image of the Aston Martin Vantage isn’t too revealing, but there’s enough light in the picture to see a combative aerodynamic package that likely serves a functional purpose aside from looking hard. It would make sense looking at the aforementioned F1 Safety Car-spec Vantage has a been newly developed front splitter that produce 155 kilograms (342 pounds) of down force at speeds of 124 mph (200 km/h) or double than the regular splitter.
Beyond the improved engine and revamp bodywork, the enthusiastic Aston Martin Vantage might offer a software modification for the transmission along with a stiffer chassis and some little changes inside the cabin. Aston Martin’s new supercar dressed in Racing Green is expected to have the same F1 Safety Car and feature additional underbody bracing and some adjustments to the steering, suspension, and dampers.
The jury is still out regarding the name of the vehicle, although it could be a new Vantage AMR looking at the previous one was limited to 200 examples. The answer to this question will be provided when the vehicle officially debuts on the 22nd of March.
