    Hamann Aston Martin V8 Vantage

    Hamann V8 Vantage

    CONNAISSEURS FIRST CHOICE
    HAMANN precious parts for ASTON MARTIN V8 Vantage and Vantage Roadster


    No doubt – HAMANN knows how to refine luxury cars. And with the tuning
    programme for the V8 Vantage of the English luxury brand Aston Martin, the
    Laupheim-based company once again confirms its supremacy as a manufacturer of
    sport accessories and thrilling body design.

    Optimised aerodynamics in perfect quality

    ”Form follows function“ – in this spirit, HAMANN perfectly co-ordinates the individual components of the aerodynamics kit with each other. The result is an impressive styling with an optimised airflow over the car silhouette and an additional output for increased bend speed.

    The bow of the Aston Martin can be optionally equipped with a spoiler lip for the original front or enhanced with an entire front skirt. Between the front and rear side, the striking HAMANN side skirt attachments render an integrated design and give the Vantage a lowered and more stretched look. In order to reduce the lifting forces at the back axle, HAMANN technicians developed a shapely spoiler which can be fitted on the rear lid and enhanced with a matching three-part rear diffuser. The latter optically extends the side skirts downwards and skilfully enhances the two end pipes of the HAMANN sport exhaust system. Basically, the customer can choose from two materials for the body components. HAMANN produces its entire aerodynamics programme in fibre glass or optionally in matt carbon.

    Sportive and elegant – the new light alloy wheel EDITION RACE

    One of the technical highlights in the tuning programme is the new three-part HAMANN light alloy wheel named EDITION RACE. The forged wheel combines both sportiness as well as elegance. The black varnished rim star and the titanium bolting emphasise the dynamism of the wheel, the highly-polished rim flange on the other hand renders a noble appearance. HAMANN offers the wheel/tyre combination measuring 9,0Jx21 inches with 245/30ZR21 tyres at the front and 10,5Jx21 rims with tyres measuring 295/25ZR21 at the back for 8,540 €. The new aluminium wheels are accentuated with special chassis springs which lower the centre of gravity of the V8 Vantage by 30 mm at the front axle and by 20 mm at the rear axle. At the same time, this enhances the handling of this sports car.

    HAMANN exhaust components: a successful symbiosis of sound and performance

    Especially for the V8 Vantage, the Swabian engineers developed sport catalysers and sport end mufflers. The components made of stainless steel render an impressive sound setting and emphasise the sportive value of the HAMANNmakeover. At the same time they breathe an additional 20 hp more performance into the British noble car and this mainly enhances its agility.

    Stylish interior

    Produced in the traditional style of Aston Martin which is reflected in comfort, luxury and sportiness in the interior, HAMANN Motorsport offers discreet interior applications. Thus, the noble aluminium pedal set including a foot rest and the car mat set made of threaded pearl velours set sportive trends. If desired, customers can also opt for a handmade complete leather equipment which meets the exclusive demands of Aston Martin drivers.

    Apart from the rims, I actually think the first one looks really nice.

    IMO, Hamann family feeling doesn't work at all on Aston's sinuous and smooth lines.

    The last thing the Aston needed was adding parts. It already weights a million tons.

    I agree....most Hamann's offering are usually over-the-top, but this is relatively sedated and actually looks quite nice...
