Well known for its tuning endeavors with BMW, MINI, Ferrari, Porsche, Land Rover and Lamborghini, German tuning house Hamann Motorsport has added Aston Martin to that list with the V8 Vantage Coupe and Roadster. Hamann makes no mention of engine performance upgrades but instead has focused on optimized aerodynamics and handling.
The body kit consists of a lower front bumper fascia with 2-piece side spoilers, side skirts, rear deck lid spoiler and three-piece diffuser with rear center spoiler which attaches to existing rear bumper fascia. Also, for the Le Mans GT look a roof mounted air scoop is available. Alternatively, a front lip spoiler is available for attachment to the standard front bumper fascia. All body components are available in fiber glass or in matte carbon.
Mechanically Hamann offers a stainless sport exhaust system good for an extra 20 hp, three-piece Hamann EDITION RACE 21-inch wheels and 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.
For the interior Hamann offers an aluminium pedal set including a foot rest and floor matts made of threaded pearl velour. If desired, bespoke leather trim and equipment is available on request.
[Correction: Hamann offers an ECU upgrade for the Vantage 4.3-liter and 4.7-liter V8 producing 358hp (283 kW) and 426 hp (313 kW) respectively, for an increase of 23 hp (17 kW) and 30 hp (22 kW). Torque is increased by approximately 25 Nm and 30 Nm. Top speed is increased to 290 km/h (series 283 km/h) and 295 km/h (series 288 km/h).]
