2006 Loder1899 Vantage V8 news, pictures, specifications, and information

Loder1899 transforms the new Aston Martin Vantage V8 into an elegant custom concept

Cool English reserve has been shaken by a stroke of Bavarian brilliance

The Bavarian design team at Loder1899 has successfully combined the comfort of a luxury vehicle wîth the dynamic power of a race car. The result is a fresh take on the Aston Martin Vantage V8, courtesy of a new high-end titanium suspension system.

The Vantage V8 normally comes wîth a non-adjustable suspension. But Loder1899 now offers a 4-way adjustable sport suspension system. This enables the driver to adjust vehicle height, gradient, pressure level and strut compression; thereby optimizing driving pleasure and cornering speeds without sacrificing comfort levels. This exclusive titanium suspension package - for the front and rear axles - is available for 9,320€.

The sport exhaust system (5,900€) includes a sport catalytic converter and is completely assembled from stainless steel. At 4,000 rpm a special valve opens, allowing the 4.3 litre V8 better breathing. The result is an even more strident exhaust note, as well as a notable increase in horsepower (from 385 to 405-hp).

Additionally, Loder1899 has developed its own carbon-fiber parts, which beautifully – and discreetly – add to the powerful elegance of the Aston Martin Vantage V8. These include a modified front lip, engine cover, a subtle rear diffuser and rear spoiler. These stylish accessories actually reduce the overall weight of the vehicle. The carbon-fiber package costs 4.680€.

Loder1899 recently joined forces wîth the British wheel designer Afzal Kahn for the Aston Martin Vantage V8 portfolio. International wheel design has been strongly influenced by this British design icon, and his creations for exclusive high-performance and luxury vehicles underline the classic grace of this special breed of cars.

Loder1899 is the exclusive German distributor of the Kahn Design RS-V wheel line in 9x20 and 11x20 inch for Aston Martin V8, Aston Martin DB9, Bentley GT, Mercedes SL, VW Phaeton and Audi A8. This exclusive set of wheels is available starting from 7,000€.

The so-called ‘Baby Aston Martin' Vantage V8 can also be equipped wîth the technically innovative 9x21 inch Hollowspoke wheel. The price for the complete set of these lightweight wheels is around 6000€. For the first time, Loder1899 is also offering a set of winter wheels. Named Gaydon (the site of Aston Martin's ÚK-headquarters), they can be ordered in dimensions of 225-, 245- or 255/40 R18. A set of Gaydon wheels (for either the Vantage V8 or DB9) starts from 2.799 €.

Technical Data: 4.3-litre longitudinal V8, located behind the front axle - four valves per cylinder - cylinder capacity of 4280 cm³ - power increase from 283kw to 297.9kw (385hp to 405hp) at 7000/min - maximum turning moment of 410Nm at 5000/min.- rear wheel drive wîth transaxle six gear gearbox - independent suspension - length/width/height 4382/1866/1255mm - tank capacity 77 litres - tires; front 255/30 ZR 21 - rear 295/25 ZR21, net weight 1570 kg - 0-100km/h in 4.9 sec - top speed 280 km/h - price 147,900€ (standard price 105,000€).
