If you are a member of the British Conservative Party, then your worldview is naturally fearful and narrow-minded. Some Conservative Think-Tank organisations believe Northern England, as an economic hub, is doomed and that all of its people should move down South. This extreme extrapolation of thought is derived from actual think-tank research from individuals who studied at elite universities such as Oxford and Cambridge.
Obviously, this research is borne out of insanity conducted by individuals who use their elitist education as a front to cover up their naturally stupid inclinations. So what has this all got to do with the Aston Martin V8 Vantage?
We want to prove the North of England is alive and kicking, not a basket case as presumed by people with stupid inclinations. Amari Supercars is a Preston based supercar dealership. We reckon, that wherever you find a supercar dealership it signifies the area and by proxy its people is well-to-do.
If the area is wealthy then that means there is no need for it to move down to Southern Englandshire. And that brings us, finally, to the subject of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage, reports indicate that it is the supercar of the moment and that makes us here at DCB Towers very happy.
This particular example from Amari supercars has already been sold, it’s on a 2018 plate and has only covered 150 miles, probably from the delivery journey up from Aston HQ in Gaydon to Preston, which is 146 miles according to Google Maps.
Decked out in Black with gloss black 20-inch rims and bright red brake calipers, this specific example looks stunning. And so too does the Copper tan interior although we would get rid of that mouse, its really not required.
The new generation V8 Vantage shares the same platform that underpins the DB11 and uses powertrain and infotainment technology sourced from Mercedes Benz. Mercedes owns a 5 percent stake in Aston Martin which allows for guilt-free this transfer of technology.
Sadly the engine is also from Mercedes, the 4.0-litre V8 Twin-Turbo emits 510-bhp and 685 Nm of torque allowing it to reach a top speed of 189mph with a 0-62-mph time of 3.6 seconds. The engine is made by Mercedes’ AMG division, Aston Martin basically install the engine without any factory modifications.
The V8 Vantage, as for now, is only available with an 8-speed automatic transmission, at a later date Aston will introduce a manual derivative. Interestingly it is the first production Aston to feature torque vectoring with an electronically controlled differential, courtesy of Mercedes no doubt.
The new V8 Vantage retails from £120,000, this Amari example is fully loaded with optional extras, factor in supply and demand then you are easily looking at around a £200k asking price.
