In-game descriptionEdit

The third generation Vantage came 5 years after the 2nd generation model ended production, debuting in 2005. The Vantage had been positioned as the high-performance model previously, but the new model was placed as the low-end model of the lineup; with a strategic price tag that was surprisingly low for an Aston Martin.

The 3rd generation Vantage was sometimes referred to as the 'baby Aston' for this reason, but its targeted rival was now the Porsche 911. For this reason, this Vantage was developed to truly pursue driving performance of a front engine rear wheel drive sportscar. The basic structure of the flowing coupe body carried over from the DB7 is a unique bonded aluminium space frame called the VH platform, started from the DB9 announced in the previous year. Lighter than the 2nd generation Vantage by almost 400 kg, the car weighs in at 1,570 kg.

The power unit is a naturally aspirated V8 based on the model from the Jaguar XK. In actuality it has been so modified that the only thing in common is the shape of the block, producing 379 BHP from 4.3 litres. Gradual improvements brought the power up to 400 BHP in 2007, and in 2008 the displacement was increased to 4.7 litres with 420 BHP. In 2011 it was further increased to 429 BHP.

The high-performance Vantage S is the car powered by this 429 BHP version of the engine. Not only is it 9 BHP more powerful than the standard model, the dampers, springs and bushings are stiffer, with a quicker steering gear ratio that makes it more suited for sports driving overall.
