Vantage – a real pearl in the model line of the British company . Since 1951 and for over 20 years, the name Vantage has been awarded the most powerful and fastest modifications to . Since 1972, Vantage has become an independent model, which received a stylish appearance with an angular stern and a gasoline 4.0-liter “six”. For 2 years, it was released only 71 copies of the sport two-door, considered to date one of the most desired acquisitions of car collectors.
In the following years, produced V8 Vantage (1977-1989), V8 Vantage Volante (1986-1989), V8 Vantage Zagato (1988-1990), V8 Vantage (Virage) (1992-1999), DB7 V12 Vantage in 1999-2003) and the most successful V8 Vantage, made its debut in 2005 and became a real bestseller of the brand, which sold around the world in more than 25,000 copies. Appeared in 2009, the V12 Vantage, by the way, is less in demand on the market than the model with an eight-cylinder engine.
The new Vantage, with a look at the predecessor of the 2005 model, must at least be no worse than to repeat the success. The new Vantage is created almost from scratch and has everything necessary for successful promotion in the market and successful competition with representatives of the German automotive industry in the person of Mercedes-AMG GT S and Porsche 911 Turbo .
It is interesting that it is enough to just look at the body of the British novelty, to fall in love with the two-door forever. Competitors just fade away next to the new Vantage. The car is both so attractive and seductive, bright and stylish, charismatic and dynamic, that in time to devote to the laudatory odes to designers who created such beauty.
The front part of the body with the largest mouth of the falshradiator grille, located on a large bumper body with bright aerodynamic elements made of carbon, neat LED headlamps and a solid hood with a powerful relief.
Side of the body of the British sports car looks like a sports car with a powerful engine and two door coupe: an elongated hood, a strong slope of the windshield, an ideal roof dome, flowing to the stern with lush forms of hind wings, miniature side windows, doors and side body panels, decorated with powerful vyshtampovkami, huge cutouts of wheel arches, under the string filled with 20-inch wheels.
The rear of the body is a real work of automotive design. An original luggage compartment lid with a characteristic spoiler lip stitching, a phenomenally stylish LED chandelier with overall lighting technology, organically repeating the bends of the tailgate, a powerful and monumental bumper with diffuser and aerodynamic chips, of course, light carbon fiber.
- The outer overall dimensions of the Vantage 2019-2019 are 4465 mm in length, 1942 mm in width, 1273 mm in height, with a 2704 mm wheelbase.
- For the coupe, 20-inch alloy wheels are standard, 20-inch forged wheels are optional. In both cases, the Pirelli P Zero tires are 255/40 R20 on the front axle and 295/35 R20 on the rear axle.
The British novelty can boast an ideal 50:50 weight distribution along the axes, an impressive distance between the axles with wheels arranged around the perimeter of the body with compact overhangs, an aluminum chassis (a shorter platform DB11 ), rear-mounted gearbox and carbon-cardan, dual-link front and five lever rear suspension, as well as steel body panels. It’s a shame, but in the presence of only a drive to the rear wheels, the new Vantage proved to be very well-fed with a dry-loaded body weight as much as 1530 kg.
Add technical fluids and 73 liters of gasoline – the curb weight of the body will exceed 1600 with an extra kilo. Porsche 911 Turbo with all-wheel drive and all liquids, including a full tank of gasoline, tightens on the scales 1595 kg, and the horses under the hood under the bonnet are more – 540. The lack of a full-wheel drive for the new Vantage is compensated by British engineers for the presence of a rear differential lock with electronic control.
The interior of the novelty is double, and the trunk can take 350 liters of cargo volume. Finishing materials of the highest quality (natural leather, carbon, aluminum), equipment, of course, is also very generous. In the presence of a multifunctional digital instrument panel, sports multifunction steering wheel, multimedia complex with 8-inch color screen, dual-zone climate control, sports seats for driver and passenger with electric adjustment, heating and cooling, parking sensors in front and rear, rear view camera for a surcharge, the system of a circular view), fully LED lights and rear parking lights, parking assistant, tire pressure sensors.
The most striking impression in the cabin is the original architecture of the front panel and the center console. At the top in the center of the torpedo is a screen of a multimedia system, installed as if in a pocket, underneath stylish ventilation deflectors, even below the climate control unit and buttons that activate the auxiliary functions in the company with the push button control of the automatic transmission and the start / stop button of the engine. On the horizontal surface of the central tunnel a massive joystick controls the multimedia complex, as well as a scattering of buttons responsible for the mass of other equipment.
Technical characteristics of the Vantage 2019-2019. At the heart of the novelty is the aluminum platform from the older DB11 model, but slightly shorter. Suspension of all wheels is independent (in front on double wishbones, behind five levers), disc brakes with cast-iron brake discs (front 400 mm disks and 6 calipers, 360 mm rear wheels with 4 calipers), drive only rear, shock absorbers with electronic control and possibility selection of the degree of rigidity (Sport, Sport Plus, Track).
In the engine compartment turbocharged 4.0-liter engine V8 Mercedes-AMG (510 hp 685 Nm), gearbox 8 automatic transmission (classic automatic from ZF). The British sports car accelerates from 0 to 100 km / h in 3.7 seconds and is able to reach a maximum speed of 314 km / h.
It only remains to add that the turbocharged “eight” Mercedes-AMG before the installation on the Vantage was slightly upgraded by the British motorists (a new engine management program, as well as other characteristics of intake and exhaust). In this case, the “voice” of the motor can be changed depending on the selected driving mode.
