Aston Martin Vantage AMR will be easier and get a seven-step manual transmissionMay 2, 2019
For the first time, a sports coupe will be sold with a mechanical transmission especially for those who like to fully control the process. However, the company decided to limit the circulation and will release only 200 such cars.
The British company Aston Martin has announced a new special version of the dispute-trailer Vantage AMR. Despite the fact that the current version has everything that we would like from a modern car, including a 500 strong V8 engine and an automatic transmission from the ZF by eight steps, the professionals wanted more. Now the company presented a limited version in honor of the victory in the competition “24 Hours of Le Mans” in 1959.
The sports coupe will receive a special “mechanic” for seven steps. The car will help the driver to switch to a lower gear at high speeds while maintaining high revolutions – this is possible thanks to the different modes of the AMSHIFT system. Vantage AMR will also receive a new limited slip differential, which will allow more efficient use of all engine power.
The power unit will remain the same – a 4.0-liter biturbo engine with a capacity of up to 503 horsepower and 625 Nm of torque. Maximum torque is available in a wide range from 2,000 to 5,000 rpm. Another feature will be a weight reduction of 95 kg and an adaptive suspension with modes of use Sport, Sport + and Track.
A total of 200 vehicles will be produced, available in Sabiro Blue, Pnyx Black, China Gray or White Stone. However, the last 59 cars will receive a special color Stirling Green. The price will start from 185,000 dollars.
