A BORN PREDATOR
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.
The most powerful V8 Vantage ever, Vantage F1 Edition, takes unique chassis and the aerodynamic learnings from the development of the official FIA F1 Safety Car and delivers them to the road.
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.
A STATEMENT OF INTENT
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.
IMMERSIVE AND FOCUSED
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.
ATHLETIC POISE AND AGILITY
SHARP SPORTING AGILITY
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. *Dry weight including lightweight options
The suspension has a forged double wishbone design at the front and a multi-link system at the rear. Adaptive damping with sensors on the car detect the prevailing driving conditions, as well as the demands the driver is making of the car. The master cylinder and booster have been updated to ensure the Vantage feels and responds as a true sports car, creating a more responsive, confidence inspiring drive.
More technological innovation comes with Dynamic Torque Vectoring and an Electronic Rear Differential, linked to the Vantage’s electronic stability control system. A first for an Aston Martin, the Electronic Rear Differential’s speed and sensitivity of response enhances cornering performance, high speed stability and manoeuvrability, enabling the driver to fully explore the Vantage’s dynamic capabilities.
THE PULSING HEART
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.
INTENSE AND BEAUTIFUL
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.
A VISCERAL ROAR
Our dedicated engineers have tuned the induction, exhaust and engine management system to retain the truly intoxicating sound and immersive character of a naturally aspirated V8 – that unforgettable quality synonymous with an Aston Martin. In Track mode it can be felt especially, amplifying the driver’s connection with the car and unleashing the car’s track capabilities to intensify the experience in the cabin. Such is the abundance of satisfyingly sensory experiences behind the wheel, that Vantage becomes the most justifiable of indulgences.
