Aston Martin V8 Vantage Upgrades

As it came out of the factory the Aston Martin V8 Vantage was universally lauded for its gorgeous looks. However such praise was tempered by its merely adequate performance, handling and braking much of which was compromised during the new product introduction process to bring the Vantage to market.

Familiar with the compromises required to bring the cars to production, we at Bamford Rose, have strived to tackle these compromises through a set of thoroughly engineered evolutions of the cars. For earlier cars, these evolutions are in a complementary fashion to the way the factory itself evolved the V8V.

Since the first project car in 2011 hundreds of Vantages have been upgraded at Bamford Rose. These carefully considered upgrades cover the complete gamut of the V8 Vantage’s model history from V8V 4.3 to V8V GT8. Each upgrade has a mission to take this beautiful design and evolve it into the focused driver’s car it was always meant to be.

Bamford Rose’s obsession with quality extends to every element of these upgrades. Each upgrade is developed to and beyond OEM standards using the best raw materials, best craftsmen and best tooling.
