The guys over at CAR have learned that Aston Martin is working on a revised and more powerful V8 Vantage for release this summer. CAR says their spy, who is hanging out in Sweden, has seen new V8 Vantages going under winter testing, and says that they are registered with a bigger 4733cc V8.
Aston Martin is hoping to workout glitches that prevent the Vantage from taking on the sportier Porsche 911s and other cars in its class. Sources are saying that the interior will be improved with a series of detail changes including an upgrade to the Volvo swtichgear and the 90’s Ford flat-barrelled key that doesn’t mix well with the class cabin.
We may see the upgraded Vantage V8 at the upcoming Geneva or New York Auto Show. The car is expected to be launched in May of 2008.
