  • Per the British carmaker, the new Aston Martin Vantage is the most driver-focused model of the nameplate to date. It is — according to the Gaydon-headquartered brand — “an authentic, unadulterated celebration of pure performance, engineered to deliver maximum thrills with maximum confidence.”

    Power like never before

    Power for the new Aston Martin Vantage comes from a heavily reworked, hand-built, 4.0-liter, twin-turbo, V8 engine. The powerplant is mated to an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission.

    In unison, the powertrain setup pushes out as much as 655 horses with 800 Newton-meters of near-instantaneous torque. On that note, the new Aston Martin Vantage can zoom from a standstill to 100 kilometers per hour (kph) in approximately 3.4 seconds. Speed peaks at around 325kph.

    Compared to the outgoing Aston Martin Vantage, the new model is 30 percent more powerful and has 15 percent more torque.

    Other driver-helpful features packed into the new Aston Martin Vantage include a new launch control system, an electronic stability program, an electronic differential, and adjustable traction control, to name a few.

    The new Aston Martin Vantage also has a better thermal load, which helps boost its engine’s performance. The oil system has also benefitted from extensive upgrades, with the auxiliary outboard engine oil cooler now boasting twice the face area of its predecessor. Thermal airflow has also been boosted with a 50 percent increase in the volume of cold air reaching the radiators.

    “As we enter a period of pivotal change in the world of high-performance cars it is essential to remain true to those qualities upon which a legendary marque has been built. Any car bearing the Vantage name has much to live up to, which is why this newest model makes an unwavering commitment to high performance in its purest and most explicit form. Class-leading power and speed establish its credentials, but it is through expert application of the latest technologies to the Vantage’s perfectly balanced front-engine rear-drive chassis that we have created a sports car with addictive capability. Together with assertive styling, all-new interior, and state-of-the-art infotainment, Vantage is world-class in every respect,” Aston Martin Chief Executive Officer Amedeo Felisa was quoted saying.

    Breathtaking exterior

    Its improved performance is reflected in the vehicle’s exterior. The body of the new Aston Martin Vantage is 30 millimeters (mm) wider than its predecessor. It also has a more muscular stance thanks to a 38-percent larger re-contoured veined grille aperture compared to the old model. As a result, the new Vantage enjoys a 29-percent increase in mass airflow for additional cooling.

    The new Aston Martin Vantage also features a new integrated splitter, with a wider and lower stance. Also noticeable is its new Matrix LED headlamp design with integrated daytime running lights, featuring the marque’s new light signature.

    Its flanks boast standard-fit 21-inch forged alloy wheels, frameless door mirrors, and presenting door handles. The rear end, on the other hand, gets a wider bumper side vents and larger diameter quad exhaust tailpipes.

    New Aston Martin Vantage owners can further personalize their rides by selecting from the three available core livery designs. With 21 colors, a client can choose to add a Pinstripe, Pinstripe and Lipstick, or Pinstripe, Lipstick and Rear infill.

    “Aston Martin is blessed with many evocative model names, but none conjure excitement and dynamism like Vantage. To capture the new car’s huge uplift in power and performance we have accentuated its physique, increasing its muscularity and sharpening its sculptural form. We took some inspiration from the One-77 supercar, but we wanted Vantage to express its intent and potency more explicitly. One look and you know it packs a real punch, but there’s an elegance of form and proportion that hints at the sophistication that underpins its raw power. This balance of instant visual impact and slow-burn charisma mirrors the driving experience and perfectly captures the essence of Vantage,” commented Aston Martin Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman.

    Sporty, luxurious interior

    Inside, the Aston Martin Vantage comes with cabin articles finished in Bridge of Weir leather. The seats — the carmaker noted — offer ample support and feature driver-focused ergonomics.

    Aston Martin stated that the Vantage is the second model to feature the brand’s next-generation infotainment system. Created in-house and first introduced in DB12, it has a fully integrated multi-screen system with full online connectivity. The display boasts 10.25-inch Pure Black touchscreen technology with full capacitive single and multi-finger gesture control.

    Sound is delivered via the new Aston Martin Vantage’s standard 390-watt 11-speaker audio system. It can be optioned with a Bowers & Wilkins 15-speaker sound system with aluminum double dome tweeters and Continuum mid-range speakers.

    Production and delivery

    Aston Martin revealed that the production of the new Vantage will start in the first quarter of 2024. Deliveries are scheduled to commence in the second quarter of the year.

    “The art of creating a truly great sports car in 2024 is applying cutting-edge technology in a way that enhances and intensifies the driving experience yet does nothing to remove the driver from the process of driving. Vantage will make headlines for the huge increases in power and torque over the outgoing model, but it’s the vivid way in which it deploys such immense performance that will seduce enthusiasts and purists. With a perfectly balanced front-engined rear-wheel drive chassis aided by industry-leading Active Vehicle Dynamics, it combines outright capability with progression and exploitability. Matched by muscular styling and completed by an all-new ultra-luxury interior packed with the latest connected technology and infotainment, it is the perfect contemporary interpretation of a time-honored legend,” Aston Martin Chief Technical Officer Roberto Fedeli explained.
