Powertrain and Drivetrain

Under the hood, Aston Martin Vantage AMR is housing a new alloy 4.0-litre V8 engine. The motor generates 510hp and provides a 625 Nm of torque. The new elegant model of Aston Martin accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in only 4.0sec and has a top speed of 314 km/h. These performance numbers sound good for a sportscar like Vantage AMR, but what is really impressive is the drivetrain and transmission of that vehicle.

What is unusual for this particular Vantage AMR is the manual Graziano seven-speed Transaxle transmission with first dog-leg gear, and the rest gears (from 2 to 7) positioned in a traditional double-H pattern.

Limited slip differential (LSD) ensures the engaging experience of the special manual gearbox. The drivetrain includes an AMShift also. This is a system consisting of clutch, sensors and engine management program, paired together to result in a smooth deceleration, acceleration and cornering stability.

Vantage AMR is already on sale with a price of nearly €200 000. The first deliveries are scheduled to start during the last three months of 2019.
