Startech has released details of their tuning upgrades for the Aston Martin Vantage, which premiered at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.
At €7,497 ($8,318) in Germany, the most expensive part is the PowerXtra SP600, which includes a moderately increased boost pressure and an auxiliary control module.
Once installed, it lifts the output of the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 from 510 PS (503 hp / 375 kW) and 685 Nm (505 lb-ft) to 600 PS (592 hp / 441 kW) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft) of torque. Nought to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) drops by 0.2 seconds, to 3.4, while top speed remains the same at 314 km/h (195 mph).
Going for the restyled front grille with carbon fiber air intakes and a glossy look costs an additional €2,677.50 ($2,971). The carbon fender vents, in the same gloss finish, are €1,808.80 ($2,007), while the rear diffuser, whose shade mimics the rest of the visual add-ons, comes at €2,201.50 ($2,443).
Startech is also offering carbon fiber side mirror caps for €1,188.81 ($1,319) and a reverse/fog light integrated into the diffuser for €1,999.20 ($2,218). The exhaust tips will set you back €4,284 ($4,753), and the 11.5×21-inch Monostar M wheels have a €1,404.20 ($1,558) price tag – but you can go for the 9×21-inch ones that, at €1,178.10 ($1,307), are a bit more affordable.
Add everything up from the Startech’s list and you will see a grand total of €23,061.01 ($25,586 at current exchange rates). That’s definitely pricey for a tuning upgrade, but you have to bear in mind that the new Vantage starts at $150k in the U.S. of A., before options. You wouldn’t expect those mods to cost the same as in, say, a Honda Civic now, would you?
