In this video Jenny previews the new Aston Martin Vantage V8 at this years 2018 Geneva International Motor Show. The engine is a very popular AMG V8 biturbo unit that does wonders in a range of highest-performing Mercedes-AMG cars. In this version it gives 510 hp and 685 Nm of torque. It is not paired with an AMG Speedshit gearbox, but ZF’s close ratio 8-speed. We’ve heard that there will also be a proper manual to please the purists.
