“This car is the second new model under our Second Century Plan. The second of seven new models in seven years,” said Ms Nancy Chen, Head of Sales Operations for Aston Martin, Southeast Asia. They call it the new Beautiful; Vantage. A two-door coupé with a sculpted form and muscular flanks, the design is indeed breathtaking and perfect for everyday use, even in the busy city of Kuala Lumpur.
Almost everything about it is new, including 70 per cent of the structure’s components to better improve the Vantage’s balance, strength, rigidity and weight efficiency. Couple that architectural detail with the 4-litre twin-turbo V8 engine, transmission and a wide variety of driving assistance systems; and you’ll find effortless power, keen responsiveness and a sharp vocal character.
In general, the new Vantage is capable of accelerating from 0-100 km/h in a mere 3.6 seconds with a top speed of 314 km/h. The main highlight, however, rests in the Electronic Rear Differential (E-Diff) — a first for an Aston Martin. Essentially, it’s linked to the car’s electronic stability control system which helps the car react accordingly regardless of speed and corners, letting the driver feel at ease and confident to push the Vantage to an entire advantage.
The new Vantage is priced from RM1.6 million, after duties, and is available for viewing in the Aston Martin Kuala Lumpur showroom (by appointment only). For more information, visit their website.
