Following the launch of the new Aston Martin 4.7 V8 Vantage this summer, owners of the original 4.3 liter V8 Vantage are now offered the choice of a retro-fit power enhancement and the popular Sports Pack option.Available through the dealer network, customers will be able to upgrade their existing 4.3 V8 to an even more potent version. With the addition of the power upgrade, peak power is raised by 20bhp to 400bhp and torque is increased to 310 lb-ft, increasing top speed to 177mph and delivering a slight improvement in the 0-60mph time.

Developed by the Aston Martin engineering team, the power upgrade is realized through a revised induction system using technology introduced on the DBS. The induction system has a pair of airbox valves that open at 5500rpm, allowing additional air into the engine and giving more power. The ECU has also been re-programmed with new software to optimize ignition timing. In addition, the new calibration allows the engine to recognize higher octane fuels, further maximizing performance.

Owing to the overwhelmingly positive response of customers towards the Sports Pack option introduced on the new V8 Vantage earlier this year - now fitted to half of all V8 Vantages produced - 4.3 V8 Vantage customers can now alter the handling characteristics of their car, with the same package of dynamic enhancements.

Developed with the enthusiast in mind, the Sports Pack comprises uprated springs and Bilstein dampers. Lightweight forged aluminum five-spoke wheels help to reduce the unsprung mass, further augmenting the precision handling.Both options are available through Aston Martin's global dealer network.
