The 1964 Aston Martin DB5 Vantage is a classic British sports car. It can be bought for $450,000, and appeared in Ultimate Driving on Racing Update. It is known as the 1964 Marek PV1 Royale in game.
The high-performance DB5 Vantage was introduced in 1964 featuring three twin-choke 45DCOE side-draft Weber carburetors and revised camshaft profiles, delivering greater top-end performance at the expense of overall flexibility, especially as legendary Webers are renowned as 'full-throttle' devices. This engine produced 325 BHP (330 PS; 242 kW) at 5,500 RPM.
With a cost of $450,000, it is not the cheapest car in the game, and comparing it's performance stats to other cars in the game, it's not very quick for what it is. With a top speed of 143 MPH (231 KM/H) and a 0-60 MPH (0-97 KM/H) time of around 6 seconds, it's not as fast as some other cars in this game but considering that it's a classic and not meant for great speed, it's easily forgiven. And despite the performance, Revenue per mile is actually rather impressive, with a cashback of $912 per mile.
Despite the lack of top speed, the DB5 Vantage has a high tendency to roll when going sideways, giving it great cornering abilities. This behavior is similar to the behavior of the AE86 Trueno.
- When you are completely stopped, if you try to start driving while you're turned all the way left or right the car will not move
but will instead switch between neutral and 1st gear rapidly. The way to fix this is to drive straight then turn.
- This is the first Aston Martin to be added to Ultimate Driving.
