V8 Vantage gets a performance advantage

Prodrive has launched a range of enhancement products for the Aston Martin V8 Vantage.

Customers can choose from a performance pack for the engine; new driver-adjustable suspension; unique forged wheels; and an aero package.

Prodrive has tuned the 4.3 litre V8 engine to raise peak power from 380bhp to 425 bhp. This reduces the car’s 0-62mph time from 5.0 seconds to an estimated 4.7 secs and increases the top speed by to 183mph.

“The V8 Vantage is already one of the world’s best sports cars,” said Roland Cherry, Prodrive performance products director. “Our aim was to develop a range of parts which enhanced the car’s performance but, most importantly, did not compromise the inherent Aston Martin driving characteristics or styling. I think we have achieved this with a range of parts owners can specify as a package or individually.”

The range of parts and prices will be available from early 2007.
