Designer Marek Reichman

The 2019 Aston Martin Vantage is a successor to the previous outgoing model which had been in production for 12 years. It was unveiled in November 2017.

Based on new architecture shared with the DB11, the Vantage utilises the powertrain and infotainment technology from Mercedes-Benz, as does the DB11. The Vantage uses Mercedes-AMG's M177 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 that develops 503 hp (510 PS; 375 kW) and 505 lb⋅ft (685 N⋅m) as well as the Mercedes COMAND system. Aston Martin claims the new Vantage is capable of accelerating from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.6 seconds, and reaching a top speed of 314 km/h (195 mph). The Vantage will be the only vehicle that pairs the Mercedes V8 with a manual transmission, when the combination is made available.

Deliveries of the new Vantage begin in Q2 2018 with a price tag of US$149,995 (£120,900).

Design

The design of the new Vantage is inspired by the track-only Vulcan and the purpose made DB10 that appeared in the James Bond film Spectre. The front grille, specifically inspired by the Vulcan, helps in efficient engine cooling.

GTE

The Vantage GTE is the upcoming GTE-class racing version of the Vantage made to compete in the FIA world endurance championship. Like the road-going car, the GTE utilizes the Mercedes-AMG V8 engine, though it is paired with a six-speed Xtrac sequential gearbox. Additional changes are made to the engine to increase power.
