    Aston Martin V8 Vantage - Power increase in the future?

    I have been trying to research if AM will be giving the V8 a power increase in the near future.

    I can't find anything firm on www.amoc.org . Anyone here on Rennteam know anything about this?

    Re: Aston Martin V8 Vantage - Power increase in the future?

    I heard they are adding power for the automatic but I have little idea how much.

    Re: Aston Martin V8 Vantage - Power increase in the future?

    The Vantage is definately in need of some extra power, a normal E36 M3 would be able to keep up with it atm.

    Yes it is. But isn't it a bit early for a power increase for the Vantage V8?

    Re: Aston Martin V8 Vantage - Power increase in the future?

    yes i agree, too early. otherwise it will be like the boxster s owners. if i was one i would be really frustrated.

    Re: Aston Martin V8 Vantage - Power increase in the future?

    It will see a power increase but not any time soom.... They will have too cause the competition is getting faster and its not like the Vantage is a very fast car even now. They'll have to to keep the car competitive....



    But for some reason I dont think the power deficit will be/is too much of a problem for Aston owners/buyers

    Re: Aston Martin V8 Vantage - Power increase in the future?

    I believe they will have an "S" version shortly, with 420 HP...or so I read, cant remember where at the moment...

    Definately, I got into my Carrera S Cab straight after the test drive and it is much quicker. I'd imagine a Carrera S coupe will dominate a Vantage

    Re: Aston Martin V8 Vantage - Power increase in the future?

    Auto Express said that AM was testing the 420 bhp version, with lower suspension, and lighter body.But when the AMV8 was launched, Ulrich Bez said that a supercharged 500 bhp version would be in the cards...

    Re: Aston Martin V8 Vantage - Power increase in the future?

    500HP? wow .. that version will be interesting..
