Introducing the New Vantage: Engineered for Real Drivers

The Dawn of a New Era

On February 12, 2024, in Gaydon, UK, Aston Martin unveiled the new Vantage, a testament to the evolution of a legendary lineage. As the most driver-focused and fastest Vantage in its 74-year history, this car is a celebration of performance, designed to exhilarate and inspire confidence in every turn. The new Vantage stands as a bold assertion of what a front-engine, rear-wheel drive sports car should be, marrying breathtaking power with unparalleled handling and balance.

Performance Unleashed

At the heart of the Vantage is a reworked 4.0 Twin-Turbo V8 engine, delivering an astounding 665PS and 800Nm of torque, marking significant jumps in power and performance. This engine, coupled with an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission, propels the Vantage to a top speed of 202mph and from 0-60mph in a mere 3.4 seconds. The car’s enhanced powertrain and newly introduced Launch Control system promise an engaging and responsive driving experience, showcasing the car’s prowess and agility.

A Chassis That Speaks Volumes

The Vantage’s bonded aluminium structure and perfect 50:50 weight distribution lay the groundwork for a definitive driving experience. With an emphasis on rigidity and balance, the car’s chassis has been meticulously tuned to ensure a harmonious connection between the driver and the road. State-of-the-art adaptive dampers and a sophisticated Electronic Stability Programme (ESP) adapt to varying driving conditions, offering a dynamic yet controlled ride.

Cutting-Edge Dynamics

The new Vantage introduces an advanced vehicle dynamics control system, incorporating a 6-axis accelerometer and various sensors to precisely manage the car’s handling. This system works in tandem with the Electronic Rear Differential (E-Diff) and various traction and stability controls to optimize performance, ensuring the Vantage remains agile and responsive, irrespective of the driving scenario.

Exterior Styling: A Statement of Power

Aston Martin has sculpted the Vantage with a more muscular stance, featuring a redesigned front-end and a 38% larger grille for improved cooling. The incorporation of Matrix LED headlamps and an aggressive splitter underscores the car’s aerodynamic focus and dynamic capabilities. Its widened body and 21in forged alloy wheels echo the Vantage’s performance-oriented nature, promising a visual impact that matches its driving prowess.

Interior Craft & Technology: Where Luxury Meets Innovation

The new Vantage’s interior is a blend of sporting ambience and supreme luxury. With an all-new architecture and the latest infotainment system, it sets new standards in quality and sophistication. Hand-stitched materials and advanced audio systems by Bowers & Wilkins create an enveloping experience, while the integrated infotainment system ensures connectivity and convenience are always at the driver’s fingertips.

Conclusion: A Legend Reborn

With deliveries starting in Q2 2024, the new Vantage is more than just a car; it’s a statement, a challenge to the conventions of sports car design. It represents Aston Martin’s commitment to performance, luxury, and innovation, offering a driving experience that is both exhilarating and refined. Engineered for real drivers, the new Vantage redefines what it means to sit behind the wheel of a sports car, promising an adventure that is as unforgettable as it is thrilling.
