The Archetypal Hunter
Vantage is raw and instinctive, unwavering in its singular purpose: to overwhelm the senses through its world-renowned design, agile performance and dedicated craftsmanship. Its heart beats with a high powered 4.0 litre twin-turbocharged V8, producing that visceral Aston Martin roar. A rare breed and a statement of independence on the road, Vantage embodies all that is beautiful in our performance sports car range. Vantage AMR is a new breed of predator, 95kg lighter in weight, and boasting a seven-speed manual transmission. This is a beast designed to deliver pure, engaging, manual performance.
Vantage Roadster is the perfect partner to the Coupe, designed side by side they sit together united in their commitment to providing the ultimate driving thrills. A convertible which amplifies the emotional appeal of a model renowned for delivering a compelling blend of potent performance, outstanding dynamics and everyday usability. Race track, winding country road or the everyday commute, Vantage is an Aston Martin of outstanding class, delivering a drive so intensely felt that it demands to be experienced time and time again.
Beautiful Won't Be Tamed
Like the archetypal hunter, everything has been finely tuned for a purpose. Sculptural forms create an athletic predatory stance, while muscular flanks and broad haunches express the agility and dynamism inherent to the car. The signature ultra-slim rear light graphic illuminates the full-width of the tailgate, accentuated by the flick in the Vantage’s tail. It provocatively expresses the car’s animalistic character in what is set to become an iconic symbol of performance.
The distinctive cockpit feel of the interior is one of absolute focus and functionality. A lower driving position creates a more immersive experience, intimately connecting the driver with the car and the road ahead. While Vantage Roadster mirrors the Coupe’s exceptional tactility, pace and cornering performance, the design of the body is very much its own.
Aston Martin’s principles of purity and beautiful proportion remain uncompromised. While Vantage has made significant advancements, echoes of the magnificent bloodline can still be seen. Ever since the nameplate launched in the 1950s as an upgrade to the DB2, Vantage has been synonymous with performance, becoming our flagship sports car.
The nose of the clamshell bonnet is pitched towards the ground, as if hunting its prey. Distinctive and assertive features like the three-dimensional S curve surrounding the meshed grille, or the focused expression of its ultra-slim LED headlights, instantly portray Vantage’s beautifully intense visual character.
The heart of Vantage beats with a 4.0 litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine. Impressive acceleration of 0-62 mph in 3.6 seconds and a speed of up to 195 mph deliver raw athleticism and an enticing performance feel.
Vantage’s high-performance V8 power house is positioned low and further back in the chassis to improve weight distribution and driving dynamics, leaving a lasting impression well beyond the drive. Effortless, inherent potency comes from the engine’s extraordinary 510 PS output and 685 Nm of torque fed through Vantage’s ZF automatic transmission. The eight-speed gearbox delivers the perfect balance of performance and refinement, with adaptive software designed to gauge the operating conditions – along with the demands the driver is making – to ensure the car is in exactly the right gear at the right time.
Our talented engineers sought the ideal foundation for the new Vantage, crafting its frame from lightweight, bonded aluminium. The inherent sporting agility comes from its compact dimensions, an impressive weight of just 1,530kg* and near perfect 50:50 weight distribution. A rigid subframe within this backbone delivers enhanced stability for the suspension. The overwhelming benefit is beautifully responsive control behind the wheel; car and driver connecting symbiotically to deliver unrivalled excitement and dynamic drivability.
