Base 2dr Coupe

Maximum Towing Capacity - 999 lb

It is the same for all trims.

The maximum weight that Aston Martin V8 Vantage is allowed to tow. The maximum trailer weights listed are only applicable for altitudes up to 3280 ft (1,000 m) above sea level. With increasing altitude the engine power and therefore the car's climbing ability are impaired because of the reduced air density, so the maximum trailer weight has to be reduced accordingly. The weight of the car and trailer must be reduced by 10% for every further 3280 ft (1,000 m) (or part thereof).

Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) - no data

This is the maximum amount of weight Aston Martin V8 Vantage is rated to carry (engine, chassis, fluids, passengers, cargo, load - everything). It is often determined by the manufacturer and is indicated in the owner's manual or on the inside of the drive's door panel.

Curb Weight - 3595 lb

This is how much Aston Martin V8 Vantage weighs sitting on the curb with no driver, passengers, no cargo and no load with all standard options.

Payload Capacity - no data

Payload is considered all the extra stuff you put inside your vehicle, whether it be passengers or a pile of rocks, that weight is all considered payload. You can increase it by:

  1. Upgrading the Rear Springs.
  2. Adding Coil-Over Shock Absorbers.
  3. Installing a Longer Truck Bed.
  4. Attaching a Trailer.
  5. Adding Bed Racks.

Horsepower - 420 hp

It is the same for all trims.

The higher the power of your engine, the more weight your car can pull.

Torque - 346 Lb-Ft

It is the same for all trims.

High torque is essential for towing because it allows you to pull the trailer at a lower RPM, reducing the strain on the engine.

Axle Ratio - 3.91

It is the same for all trims.

The higher the axle ratio, the more power your vehicle produces, and as a result, the more weight this car can tow.

Drive Type - no data

All-wheel or rear-wheel drive vehicles are best suited for towing, while front-wheel drive vehicles can haul much less weight.

Transmission - no data

Do not overload your vehicle while towing, as this can cause the transmission to overheat and fail. If your transmission has "Towing mode" - be sure to turn it on.

Turbocharger - no data

Turbocharged engines produce more power, so if you need a vehicle for towing, choose the one equipped with a turbo.

Wheelbase - 102.5

It is the same for all trims.

The longer your vehicle's wheelbase, the less likely the trailer you tow will push down on the rear axle and lift the front end.

Front Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR) - no data

It is the maximum allowable weight that can be placed on a front axle of your Aston Martin V8 Vantage.

Rear Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR) - no data

It is the maximum allowable weight that can be placed on a rear axle of your Aston Martin V8 Vantage.

The towing capacity in reality is the vehicle's greatest volume of weight that it could safely tow. This info can generally be seen on a sticker label situated on the inside of the driver's front door close to the door latch. The gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) is the optimum functional weight (which includes freight and passengers) and should not be exceeded. Typically, the mass of any trailer being towed is recommended to stay within 10-15 percent of the GVWR.

Down the page, we offer the information about the towing capacity of the 2011 Aston Martin V8 Vantage with all trims and generations.
