Bangkok (Thailand) – March 28, 2018 (travelindex.com) – Aston Martin Bangkok will reveals a stunning line-up of Aston Martin luxury sports cars, produced by the iconic British marque, at the 39th Bangkok International Motor Show. The new Aston Martin Vantage, the second car delivered under the company’s Second Century Plan, will officially make its debut in Southeast Asia alongside the beautiful V12-powered DB11 coupe, extraordinary four-door Rapide S sports sedan and the ultimate Grand Tourer, Vanquish.
Mr.Komkrit Nongsawat, General Manager of Aston Martin Bangkok, said that “We are very excited to be unveiling the highly anticipated new Vantage, offering Thai customers afirst glimpse of the British marque’s latest sporting icon. This important milestone also underpins Thailand as a key emerging market in Asia, on the back of a successful sales performance in 2017.”
Aston Martin Vantage: The Successor to a True Sporting Dynasty
The spectacular new Vantage demands a bold and distinctive design language. Pure, sculptural forms create an athletic, predatory stance, while the minimal front and rear overhangs, muscular flanks and broad haunches express the agility and dynamism inherent within the car. New head and tail lights form dramatic new signatures giving the Vantage unmistakable road presence and contribute to a strong and individual identity within the growing Aston Martin model range.
The heart of the Vantage is Aston Martin’s potent new alloy, 4.0 litre twin-turbo V8 engine. Set low and as far back in the chassis as possible for optimal centre-of-gravity and perfect 50:50 weight distribution. This high performance, high efficiency engine returns a CO2 figure of 245g/km yet develops 503BHP at 6,000 rpm and 685 Nm from 2,000-5,000 rpm. With a dry weight of 1,530 kg, this gives the Vantage formidable power-to-weight ratio- something vividly demonstrated whenever the throttle is squeezed. Meticulous tuning of the induction-exhaust system and engine management has given the Vantage a truly intoxicating character and soundtrack.
Exuding raw athleticism with its explicit look and intent, the everyday usable Vantage deploys its power and torque to the rear wheels via a rear-mounted ZF
8-speed automatic transmission, making it capable of doing 0-100 km/h in just 3.6 seconds and achieve a top speed of over 314 km/h. It employs a suite of integrated electronic systems to offer maximum control and driver enjoyment.
The new Vantage’s Electronic Rear Differential (E-Diff) heralds an unprecedented technological upgrade as it analyses the car’s behaviour, and reacts accordingly to direct engine power to the relevant wheel – from fully open to 100% locked in a matter of milliseconds.
Being an Aston Martin, the new Vantage features exceptional standard equipment versatility thanks to the In-Car Entertainment system-controlled and viewed via a centrally mounted 8” LCD screen – comprises of the Aston Martin Audio System, Bluetooth® audio and phone streaming, iPod®, iPhone® and USB playback along an integrated satellite navigation system.
Nancy Chen, Head of Sales Operations, Asia Pacific, said, “Vantage is an established sporting icon and we believe that this new model continues to deliver that same ethos. The second product of our Second Century Plan, the new Vantage is another important step towards the future success of our business and I hope that those who get a chance to view it will agree that this has the potential to become a real modern classic.”
Spurred on by last year’s impressive sales growth and improving buyers’ sentiments which have carried over to 2018, Mr. Komkrit also shared, “Aston Martin Bangkok anticipates yet another successful year ahead with the dual excitement of the latest product offerings and sustained interest in the Thai market. We also remain committed to delivering first-class Aston Martin Ownership experience to meet the needs of our Aston Martin clients.”
