Aston Martin V8 Vantage (1977)
The Aston Martin
Aston Martin
V8 Vantage was hailed at its 1977 introduction as "Britain's First Supercar" (sometimes nicknamed "British Muscle car") for its 170 mph (270 km/h) top speed. Its engine was shared with the Lagonda, but it used high-performance camshafts, increased compression ratio, larger inlet valves and bigger carburettors mounted on new manifolds for increased output. Straight-line performance was the best of the day, with acceleration from 0–60 mph (97 km/h) in 5.3 seconds, one-tenth of a second quicker than the Ferrari Daytona.[2] The first series had 375 hp (280 kW), and series specific details such as a blanked bonnet vent and a separate rear spoiler.[3] 38 of these were built (plus 13 "Cosmetics" for the US).[4] The Oscar India (for 1 October, the date of introduction) version, introduced in late 1978, featured an integrated tea-tray spoiler and smoother bonnet bulge
