Two novelties of Aston Martin were introduced in New York
Before we told you about the best cars that had been rolled at the annual show in New York las week. Now we want to dwell on two new models of Aston Martin.
The Aston Martin manufacturer did not presented the completely new cars because before at the auto show in Geneva, the carmaker introduced both of them. However, in New York the carmaker finally announced some costing details.
First, the carmaker named its 2015 novelty as the Vantage N430, but there were some doubts that the American buyer would not understand the “N” in the car’s name because the N’s vehicles were considered as racecars. Thereby, Aston Martin named its novelty as the Vantage GT for the U.S. auto market.
The Aston Martin Vantage GT is equipped with the 4.7-liter V8 engine producing the power of 430 horsepower. The car is offered with the six-speed manual gearbox and the seven-speed automated manual transmissions with paddle shifters. This powertrain is able to accelerate the car from 0 mph to 60 mph in just 4.6 seconds; the high speed of this novelty is 190 mph as well.
The redesigned exterior of the Vantage GT includes impressive liveries with variable graphic packs. The auto manufacturer used lines and shapes of the classic racecars launched in past to add special details for side mirrors, a grille and the back diffuser as well.
Potential buyers will be glad to see the updated interior, which includes new materials inside such as carbon sill plaques, black magnesium paddle-shifters, a stylish gear shifter made of carbon fiber, satin chrome rotaries, and certainly, there is Alcantara trim and leather in the car.
Moreover, as we have said before, the carmaker had announced the prices for its model. The Vantage Gt is available in coupe and convertible versions and both will cost starting from 99,900 dollars.
The second novelty of Aston Martin that was also presented in New York is the DB9 Carbon edition. This model is offered in black and white carbon flavors. In addition, the customers will be able to choose their own preferable color combination.
What about the powertrain of this novelty, the new DB9 is equipped with the 6.0-liter V12 engine, which produces the power of 510 horsepower and 457 lb-ft of the torque. The car gets the standard six-speed automatic gearbox. The maximum speed of this novelty is expected to be about 183 mph.
