It’s what the Vantage was always meant to be

The new Aston Martin Vantage is here, taking the original design and morphing it into what it was always meant to be. It’s wider, lower, sexier, and proportioned just right. Highlights include a larger grille up front that sits lower and is integrate into the front spoiler, a wider presence out back, bubblier greenhouse, and a more aggressive design overall. Under the hood sits an all-aluminum, 4.0-liter V-8 that’s good for 503 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 505 pound-feet at 2,000 rpm.

That accounts for an increase of 83 horsepower and 144 pound-feet over the outgoing base model! That’s a huge increase. Shifting duties are handled by a ZF eight-speed auto while the rear wheels are controlled by an electronic differential – a first for Aston Martin. Now that you know about the goodies under the metal, check out this video from YouTuber Shmee150 as he goes over all the finer details in this first look!
