The highly anticipated Aston Martin Vantage AMR has finally been showcased and it has certainly not disappointed! It’s the forerunner of the new Vantage family and the first of its kind to come fully equipped with a manual gearbox.
The Vantage AMR’s specifics are mind-blowing. Carswitch.com talks about the specifications, features, and trims of the car for sale! Read on to find out more!
Speed and Horsepower
It has an AMG sourced 4.0 litre twin turbo V-8 that boasts 503 horsepower and 625 Nm of torque which is responsible for powering the vehicle. The AMG enters unparalleled depths. With a downstream power plant, the car is able to operate smoothly with a near even weight distribution which allows for serene cruising.
Perhaps, what truly sets the Vantage AMR apart is its motorsport-esque, 7-speed gearbox which follows a dog leg gear shift in the classic double H pattern. All this allows the sought-after sports vehicle to reach speeds of up to 100 km/h in a mere 4 seconds with a maximum of 313 km/h.
The Vantage AMR has plenty more to offer, instead of just speed and horsepower. Certain design changes, such as carbon ceramic brakes, have allowed this elite model to cut off weight, a whopping 95 kg to be exact, as compared to the traditional Vantage. In addition, it also inculcates the Skyhook adaptive damping system which entails Sport, Sport+ and rack settings.
Released as a limited edition model, the Aston Martin Vantage AMR will see just 200 makes, with 141 of these being restricted to the following four aesthetic choices: Onyx Black, White Stone, China Grey and Sabiro Blue.
The remaining 59 pieces will be part of the ‘Vantage 59’ collection and will be used to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Aston Martin’s victory at the 1959 24 Hours of Le Mans. These exclusive pieces will be coated in the finest quality Stirling Green and Lime paint.
Making sure not to leave any of its valued customers behind, Aston Martin has offered an alternative for those who are unable to grab one of these limited 200 pieces. In the year 2020, Aston Martin will be releasing the standard Vantage vehicle equipped with a manual transmission. Hence, ensuring speed and quality without compromising on limited availability.
