Due to hit Australian roads in July 2018, the Vantage looks extremely promising.
The British manufacturer revealed the details of the vehicle late last year. After a series of fairly similar looking vehicles, they made clear that they were differentiating from the Vantage’s bigger brother, the DB11.
The new design is immediately noticeable. The Vantage’s styling is sleek, lithe and aggressive. The front end is dominated by Aston Martin’s trademark grille, which incorporates a lower splitter and side gills with the intent to further control and utilise airflow and turbulence.
The new design reflects the Vantage’s reported performance. The Vantage is smaller, lighter and more dynamic. This doesn’t mean that the Vantage has lost any power however. A 4.0-litre Twin Turbo V8 puts out a solid 375 Kw and 685 Nm. An eight-speed automatic transaxle drives the rear wheels and has the ability to accelerate the car to 100km/h in 3.5 seconds and hurtle the car to an astonishing 313 km/h.
2018 Ferrari Portofino
The reveal of the Portofino has excited Ferrari fanatics and car enthusiasts. So much so that if you haven’t ordered one by now, you most likely won’t be able to get one in your garage before 2019.
Set for release in late 2018, the Portofino will succeed the Ferrari California. The vehicle sports a decidedly sharper look. A prominent grill, structured bumper and a lower splitter adds aggression to the design.
Ferrari has confirmed that the Portofino will be the first car to feature electric power steering. The Ferrari California’s double wishbone system featuring magnetic dampers will also be carried across to the the Portofino.
The Portofino can go from 0-100km/h in 3.5 seconds and Ferrari claims that it can reach a top speed of over 320km/h.
2018 Chevrolet Camaro 2SS
Sadly, Holden manufacturers have left Australia. That doesn’t meant that nothing exciting will come from them! Instead of producing the HSV Commodores as they have for the last 30 years, Holden have switched to importing cars and converting them into right-hand drives.
With an expected release within July 2018, there’s alot of hype for the iconic American vehicle being stirred up. It will be exclusively sold at over 60 Holden dealerships around Australia.
“The Camaro 2SS is powered by a 6.2-litre naturally-aspirated V8 that produces 340kW of power and 615Nm of torque. It weighs 1671kg, 90kg lighter than its predecessor, and accelerates 0-100km/h in 4.0 seconds flat, almost a second faster than the 5.0-litre V8-powered Ford Mustang GT.” – drive.com.au
