Erlkönig Aston Martin Vantage S (2019): pictures and data

D the model is shown at the rear a double-flow exhaust system on the right and left and a slightly modified diffuser. Otherwise, the shot down model is still on the road with the body of the 'civilian' Vantage. From 2019, the S version will have a more rigidly tuned chassis and modified steering. The British also save around 30 kilos in weight.

Vantage S with 550 hp

Under the hood, the AMG V8 with a displacement of four liters and twin-turbo charging works. It makes 510 hp and delivers 685 Nm of torque. This accelerates the Vantage to 100 km /h in 3.6 seconds. The top speed is 314 km /h. In the Vantage S, the eight-end engine will have 550 hp in the future and will transmit the power to the rear wheels via the eight-speed automatic. The design of the Vantage adapts Aston Martin to the higher performance.

But handset fans can look forward to the fact that the Vantage and Vantage S will also be equipped with a manual seven-speed gearbox in the future. Aston Martin boss Andy Palmer plans to use up to 25 percent of the Vantage models as a manual switch to satisfy the 'weekend warriors'. These are the customers who are out on the racetrack at the weekend.

Manual transmission for the Vantage

The manual transmission with seven gears is supplied by the Italian transmission specialist Oerlikon Graziano, who also has the Manufactures dual clutch transmissions for McLaren. The manual transmission with H-shift is designed as a sports shift with the first gear 'bottom left'. Accordingly, the more frequent gear changes between “two” and “three” can be shifted faster.

However, the handset fans have to be patient. The new transmission option will not be available until mid-2019, as the AMG V8 has never been coupled with a manual transmission. The development and testing effort is correspondingly higher here.

In addition to the Vantage and the Vantage S with automatic and manual transmission, Aston Martin will also be offering the model in the future as a convertible version Volante and with a 5.2-liter twin turbo -V12 on. There should also be an AMR edition from Vantage.
