Aston Martin V12 Vantage: Performance

The agility and outright performance formed the basis for design Aston Martin V12 Vantage provides the most interesting incarnation of the Vantage range, up to date. Aston Martin the most efficient engine is the most agile car zone produces a very exciting sport.

The V12 power plant has been cleverly packaged in a compact Vantage, it retains its perfect proportions. While the external dimensions of the V8 Vantage remains unchanged, the home front structure were reviewed until the suspension towers to accommodate the bigger engine, brakes, cooling system, and twin air intake system .



The engine was designed by Aston Martin headquarters in Gaydon, Warwickshire, and is hand built at the factory engine dedicated to Cologne, Germany. For the purpose, the engine is equipped with a number of improvements over the standard 6.0-liter V12 in the DB9. These include a "bypass" port of the engine air intake that opens at 5500 rpm, a consumer revised and re-profiled air inlet ports that further improve current of air into the combustion chamber to improve performance.

The naturally aspirated 6.0-liter V12 510 horsepower hand products (380 kW / hp 517) at 6500 rpm and 570 Nm (420 lb.-ft.) of torque at drivers access to high power and torque any engine speed.

This mode is designed for use in dynamic driving situations, the more clear answers are needed, extracting maximum performance from the machine.

Aston Martin V12 Vantage Aston Martin will benefit from first class, all-alloy VH (Vertical Horizontal): a light attached to a forum that offers excellent advantages of strength, stiffness and weight.



Although the V12 engine weighs 100 kg more than the production car, the intelligent use of lightweight materials and components including carbon ceramic brakes, lighter forged aluminum wheels, lightweight interior panels and rear side seats have brought additional light a curb weight of only 50 public his brother kg heavier V8. In the distribution of weight resulting from the balance that gives it almost perfect (51:49).

Only available with a manual six-speed transaxle gearbox uses a setup to facilitate the distribution of weight. The ratio of the Aston Martin V12 Vantage unit was also changed from last 3.71:1 3.909:1.

The Vantage N24 GT4 class made gains across Europe since its launch in 2006. Common street cars and competition is the platform on which the architecture is based Aston Martin Vantage V12 VH. Composed of aluminum alloy pressing and casting, attached with aircraft grade adhesive, the backbone of the car is running with the drivetrain and suspension to create a response to the exceptional driving experience.

Near-perfect weight distribution is achieved mounted transaxle gearbox, which sees 85% of the weight of the car between the front and rear. Aston Martin's engineers have invested in the engine as soon as possible and the lowest drive to promote the weight distribution of 51:49. Includes the weight of the Aston Martin V12 Vantage step because a low polar moment of inertia, to create a car that is a natural agility.



Excellent handling is central to the Aston Martin V12 Vantage, the rear suspension was modified with a dual-spring design more compact rates to accommodate a wide combination of wheels and tires, better grip and traction. The ride height of the Aston Martin V12 Vantage was also lowered by 15 mm, while the spring rates have been stiffened by 45% and anti-roll bars are 15% (front) and 75% (rear) more rigid than the standard car. These are used to lower the center of gravity of the car and reduce the amount of roll when cornering, new capacity expansion Aston Martin V12 Vantage dynamic.

Aston Martin V12 Vantage diamond turned 19 "light alloy wheels are manufactured by forging process, saving a total of 5 kg, which reduces the weight of the car, as well as to improve both ride and handling characteristics.



10 new breeds are coated with a wider Pirelli P Zero Corsa, which was designed specifically for Aston Martin V12 Vantage will enable it to produce higher cornering forces of Aston Martin, up to 1.3 g peak is possible.

Aston Martin V12 Vantage is equipped with Carbon Ceramic Matrix (CCM) brakes, a huge stopping power. To benefit from the intrinsic properties of carbon fiber, CCM brakes are not only harder than traditional cast iron discs, but also to dissipate heat quickly and then fade less continuous driving dynamics.

Air ducts placed in the grid supply lower air directly onto cooled and optimize braking performance.

Aston Martin V12 Vantage CCM discs have a diameter of 398 mm front and 360 mm rear, when the brake calipers in six-piston front and four behind pads larger than the V8 Vantage. CCM brakes are about 12.5 kg lighter than the traditional wheel brakes will not only reduce the overall weight of a car, but unsprung weight separately.

Each form according to their functional needs, while contributing to a stunning design - a front splitter channels revised cooling air to the brakes and the radiator while production increased by force. Hood Grilles remove heat from the engine compartment and helps against increased down force by reducing the air pressure builds up under the hood. Rocker again from the air channel N24 running towards the rear of the car instead of underneath it, which reduces lift.



A more pronounced "flip" and the new rear diffuser work in carbon fiber in harmony with a redesigned rear under the floor to channel air through the oil cooler and high capacity to hold a new area of ​​low pressure the rear of the car produces more effective and help reduce the adhesion.
