Get ready to lust after the new Aston Martin Vantage

Meet the world-eater new Aston Martin Racing Vantage GTE revealed

Paired to that engine is a ZF-sourced eight-speed automatic gearbox and a six-speed manual will come later.

Tipping the scales at 3,373 lbs and employing a front-mid-engined configuratioun, this athlete comes with a 50:50 weight distribution, while being the first Aston Martin to pack an electronically-controlled rear diff with torque vectoring.

And while we're not aware of the test car's exact objective, this sighting makes for a brilliant opportunity to remind you of the rumors that talk about the future of the 2019 Aston Martin Vantage. The bodywork - including the massive rear wing, diffuser and front splitter - is mostly made from carbonfibre, helping the racier Vantage hit the 1245kg FIA-regulated weight figure.

The new Vantage promises to be more agile, responsiveness, sharper, vocal and exciting. That's certainly not light for a sports vehicle that seats two people, but with a flawless weight distribution, the higher overall total won't be as much of an issue.

The new Aston Martin Vantage conveys a powerful look on its tidy footprint. He added, "This is a golden era for GT racing and today's launch of the new Vantage GTE wil ensure that Aston Martin Racing remains at the forefront of the world's greatest endurance series".

All-new Aston Martin Vantage launched

A new exterior look is the most obvious change to Aston Martin's entry-level two-seater model, which will arrive on United Kingdom roads in February 2018 and replace a auto described by company CEO Andy Palmer as "the single most successful model in Aston Martin's history". In its place is a more dynamic and compact multi-tier center stack topped by a screen, center vents, HVAC controls and then a new triangular horizontal surface that arranges the PRND switches in a triangular fashion.

Other appointments include a tricky new electronic rear differential to aid driving stability and a chassis further refined from the DB11.

The new Vantage is now on sale in the United Kingdom, with pricing set at £120,900.

An electronic rear differential has been fitted to the Vantage - a first for Aston Martin - to better improve the sports car's dynamic behaviour at both high and low speed. It can continue to accelerate until a top speed of 195 miles per hour. Enhancing performance is a choice of Sport, Sport Plus, and Track modes to tailor the drive even more to suit the driver's needs. This is a feature that could become a signature design item on future Aston Martin cars, a spokeswoman said. Naturally, leather and Alcantara upholstery are included, and a wide range of personalisation will be offered.

Deliveries of the all-new Vantage will start during the second quarter of 2018, with the base price in the US coming in at $149,995.
