The Porsche 911 may be sitting pretty on top of its pedestal, but it should be wary. Aston Martin has designed the 2019 Aston Martin Vantage to not only meet the Porsche 911 head-on but exceed it in many of its features. So, if you are thinking about getting the 2019 Aston Martin Vantage in Dallas, take a look at this.
First things First
The Aston Martin Vantage is not only designed to compete with the Porsche 911, but destroy the competition against Ferrari and Bentley as well. It does this by, according to Marek Reichman, Chief Creative Officer and studio head of Aston Martin, being “instinctive and unadorned” and “stripped of armor, revealing a sense of rawness and focus.” The front grille is replaced with a far lower nose, giving it a predatory element. Together with a Mercedes-AMG twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine paired with a ZF 8-speed automatic transmission, you’ll get a blustery and powerful 503 horsepower with 505 lb-ft of torque roaring machine. This pales in comparison to the 3.0- liter six-cylinder twin-turbo boxer engine that produces up to 370 hp on the Porsche 911 Carrera.
When performance is on the line, weight distribution is paramount. The 2019 Aston Martin Vantage boasts a 50/50 mass distribution between the front and rear. Together with the low and dead center seating position and impressive viewing angle, you’ll always feel like you are in control as you hunt your prey.
Speed Meets Performance
The Porsche 911 Carrera reaches it 0-60 mph speed in 4.4 seconds and can have a top track speed of 183 mph. The 2019 Aston Martin Vantage reaches out to the 200-mph mark with its top speed of 195 mph. Its 0-60 time is an impressive 3.6 seconds. With this, you know your Vantage is not only exceeding in performance but is as responsive as you can get.
This isn’t even getting into the double A-arm suspension at the front and the DB11’s multilink configuration at the rear of the Vantage. If you want to stand out, take a look at the 2019 Aston Martin Vantage in Dallas. Come see us at Aston Martin of Dallas, today!
