Having Daddy’s German power and Mommy’s British good looks has it’s benefits: Meet the 2018 Vantage V8


Flugplatz Blue in the flesh


Solo Motorsports @Norcross had a delightful surprise show up out of the blue (get it?) A brand new 2019 Vantage V8 in Flugplatz Blue! We are proud to say we are one of the first shops here in America that can tune these beauties properly!


Let’s take a look under the bonnet, shall we?


Wait, that’s no Aston Engine.

Your eyes are right, that is the same engine that powers the Mercedes-AMG GT. Daddy Benz was one generous sugar daddy to Aston Martin by the looks of things. Secretively partnered in 2013 Daimler has been supplying electronics, infotainment and engines for a minimal return of benefit in Aston Martin’s ever-growing stakes (just like a classic sugar daddy, they want to see some returns from their investment) Benz gave Aston a mid-engine heart of 503-horsepower, twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 and ontop of it the title of one of the best handling Aston Martins ever created. Not a bad trade, if you ask me.

This unsuspected Lovechild born from this scandalous affair is brilliant in our opinion. Why such the partnership? Possibly Aston Martin & Mercedes-Benz teamed up to have a challenger ready for Chevy’s mid-engine C8 ‘Zora”. Maybe Mercedes-Benz wanted to shake their “doesn’t play well with others” attitude, who truly knows all that matters is WE GOT A GORGEOUS VANTAGE OUT OF IT and got to Dyno it!
