Aston Martin Releases Vantage GT Technical Specs
Aston Martin has recently revealed the technical specs for the Vantage GT, a move coinciding with the model’s debut at the New York Auto Show.
Powered by a 4.7-liter V8 engine that develops 430 bhp at 7,300 rpm, the Aston Martin Vantage GT can go from 0 to 62 mph in 4.6 seconds and reach of top speed of 190 mph. The model comes with either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed Sportshift II automated manual transmission. In order to get as much out of the engine as possible, Aston Martin has equipped the Vantage GT with a valved air intake system, as well as an aggressive spark strategy.
The Aston Martin Vantage GT comes with a variety of distinctive (and distinguishing) styling elements, like graphite diamond-turned alloy wheels, black headlight bezels, side window surrounds and textured tailpipes. The interior is similarly luxurious, featuring machined carbon sill plaques, black magnesium paddle-shifts or carbon fiber gearshift surround; satin chrome rotaries; a leather (or Alcantara) steering wheel with contrasting on-center stitch feature; seat and door inserts in technical PlisseAlcantara and unique seat trim patterns.
Aston Martin is selling the new Vantage GT as both a coupe and a roaster. The price is set at around $99,900, with deliveries starting later this year.
