In February 1977, Aston Martin unveiled the new Vantage with V8 power. The name was previously used on upgraded Aston Martins dating back to the DB2, however the new V8 Vantage pushed the industry forward as the first production car with a capable top speed of 170mph. Considered to be the first true British Supercar, the V8 Vantage had a classic GT layout seating up to four. Powered by the same master work 5.3 litre DOHC V8 that was fitted in the Lagonda, the Vantage V8 was tuned with higher duration camshafts, larger valves, and an increased compression ratio. Fed by four Weber 48 IDF carburetors, in Euro specification form the Vantage V8 pushed nearly 400 horsepower! Style was based on the Aston Martin V8 with several aerodynamic aesthetic touches including a solid front air dam with twin CIBIE lights while a front spoiler to draw in air to the radiator. The famous Flip Tail spoiler was bolted onto the first 16 cars, and became an integrated part of the body work after. Assembled by hand in Aston Martins legendary tradition, the V8 Vantage was praised by the automotive press upon its release. Several publications noted that the V8 Vantage outperformed other great marques including the Lamborghini Countach, the Ferrari 512BB and the Porsche 930.
