New Aston Martin Vantage Sold Out for 2018!
You’ll have to wait until 2019 if you want oneby Ciprian Florea, on
The second-generation Aston Martin Vantage just made its public debut last week, and we’re still in awe of its fantastic design, incredible interior, and tremendous performance. But it seems we’re not the only ones impressed by it. Enthusiasts have taken Aston Martin’s recently opened preorder books by storm and purchased the entire production run for 2018. Yup, if you want one of these babies and haven’t placed an order yet, you won’t be able to take it home until 2019. Impressively enough, it’s been only a few days since it went on sale. And it’s not cheap either, retailing for around $150,000.
"Most of our production for next year is already sold out," Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer said in an interview, according to Bloomberg. And even he declined to specify production figures, it’s safe to assume, at least based on previous production figures, that Aston Martin will build around 2,000 Vantages in 2018, if not more. The first deliveries are scheduled to arrive in the second quarter of 2018.
The announcement comes only a few days after the British company reported a pretax profit of £22 million (about $29.3 million) for the first nine months of 2017. Sales were up 84 percent to 567 million pounds compared to the same period of 2016, when Aston Martin posted a loss. The Vantage is expected to increase sales even farther and eventually help the company establish a record of profitability ahead of going public.
