In-game descriptionEdit

"A 550 BHP monster touring car with twin superchargers."

Following the company's purchase by American automaker Ford in 1987, Aston Martin unveiled a high-performance car called V8 Vantage at the 1992 British International Motor Show. The V8 Vantage was the top of the line in the company's V8 lineup.

While the base models were powered by a 5,340 cc DOHC V8 that produced 344 BHP and 363.8 lb-ft of torque, the Vantage added two superchargers to the engine equation resulting in a whopping 550 BHP and 449.7 lb-ft of torque. The powerplant came mated to either 6-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission. Even with its 2-ton curb weight, the Vantage could reach a top speed of 186 mph and sprint to the 60-mph mark in a scant 4.6 seconds. helping to stop the car were large-diameter AP brake discs; the 362-mm diameter front rotors were among the largest ever in a road car.

The Vantage was large as 2+2s went, with a length of 186 inches, with of 76 inches, and wheelbase measuring 102 inches. The exterior was fundamentally the same as the other V8s, but the front grille was changed from a cross-rail type of a lattice design. The Vantage also wore bigger tires than the other cars in the lineup. They consisted of 285/45ZR18s at all four corners. Production of the Vantage V8 began in 1992 and continued through 1999.
