Wow! Aston Martin is here with the new Vantage. Following the DB12, this is now the latest model available from the British. Sleek and more beautiful than ever with a powerful V8 engine in the forecastle. From certain angles it even reminds us of the One-77!
As the latest in an iconic bloodline, Aston Martin proudly introduces the new Vantage. Aston Martin's signature sports car and the most driver-focused and fastest Vantage in the famous nameplate's 74-year history. It's an authentic, unadulterated celebration of pure performance, designed to deliver maximum thrill with maximum confidence. As mentioned, the announcement of a new Vantage follows last year's successful introduction of the acclaimed DB12 Coupé and Volante. Vantage further strengthens Aston Martin's next generation of sports cars, cementing the brand's position in the ultra-luxury, performance sports car market, in addition to its leading role in the ultra-luxury sports GT, SUV and hypercar arenas.
Powered by a hefty custom, hand-built 4.0 Twin-Turbo V8 engine, the new Vantage is the fastest in the nameplate's history. Peaking at 665 PS and a colossal 800 Nm of torque, it also makes the biggest ever jump in power and torque compared to the model it succeeds, with the increases of 155 PS and 115 Nm representing gains of 30% and 30% respectively. 15%. Unbelievable of course when you consider that 510 hp is not that little in a sports car. Aston Martin is taking giant steps with the V8 engine and also in the Vantage. The Vantage reaches 100 km/h in 3.4 seconds, while the top speed is 325 km/h. These higher power outputs have been achieved through extensive tuning by Aston Martin engineers, the use of modified camshaft profiles, optimized compression ratios, larger turbos and improved cooling, delivering impressive new figures and creating an engine with a sharper, more visceral and more vocal character .
The biggest pain point for Aston Martin has finally been addressed for the Vantage. The interior. Clean, uninterrupted lines create a striking yet elegant environment in the Vantage cockpit, giving the driver a feeling of space and clarity. From the sleek air vents and perfectly integrated infotainment screen to the clearly defined array of physical switches on the lower portion of the center console, the new Vantage interior is a triumph of functional beauty and tactile quality. Vantage is the second model to feature Aston Martin's next-generation infotainment. Developed in-house and first introduced in DB12, it has been completely customized and developed from scratch. Complemented by a new Aston Martin customer connectivity app supporting iOS and Android devices, it enables interaction, control and feedback to and from the customer's Vantage via their personal device.
Last but not least the appearance. Here too, they went to the drawing board again. From the first glance you know that you are dealing with the new generation of Vantage. A 30mm wider body with a more muscular appearance is accentuated by a completely redesigned front fascia with a 38% larger, reshaped veined grille opening, offering a 29% increase in mass airflow for additional cooling. Further cooling intakes in the bumper either side of the grille sharpen the front end characteristics, while the new integrated splitter, with a wider and lower stance, adds aerodynamic functionality, providing high-speed stability by reducing lift. This striking front-end treatment is completed by an all-new Matrix LED headlight design with integrated DRLs, featuring Aston Martin's new lighting signature.
Standard-fit 21-inch forged alloy wheels fill the wider wheel arches to perfection, creating a purposeful stance that exudes both strength and poise. Frameless door mirrors and distinctive door handles are also new to the Vantage, while a wider rear bumper with side vents and larger diameter quad exhaust pipes ensure the Vantage looks as bold from the rear as it does from the front.
The new Vantage is available from now on and the first deliveries will take place in the second quarter of 2024. We are already looking forward to it!
