Introducing the New Aston Martin Vantage 2018

There is nothing quite like the unveiling of a new Aston Martin, especially if the predecessor has been around since 2005. However, when was the last time Aston Martin made a car that was nothing short of stunning?

This all new Vantage stays true to this style and boasts an incredible approach to design, unbelievable levels of performance, whilst still being able deliver all of this in true Aston Martin luxury and refinement.

Finished in a rich Hyper Red tonality, the brand-New Aston Martin Vantage looked superb against the low-level showroom lighting at our Vantage premiere events, which were held at our Mayfair and Western Avenue showrooms in London on the 16th and 18th January respectively.

The New Aston Martin Vantage Design

Upon first glance, you are still able to see the first-generation Vantage DNA, yet features such as the clamshell bonnet are wonderfully similar to the Aston Martin DB11 - not that anyone will be complaining. The all-new Aston Martin Vantage uses an all-new platform and happens to be the second model to feature in Aston Martin's 'second-century plan', following on from the DB11, which will see seven new models being introduced in just seven years.

Styling is of a much bolder approach, yet class and elegance is still evident, Aston Martin have managed to compliment both these philosophies resulting in a superb looking coupe. The launch colour on the all-new Aston Martin Vantage is just the start of this bold new style presented. The 'Radioactive Lime' paint is certainly eye-catching, but if you're more reserved a subtler array of familiar Aston Martin colours are available - you'll still be turning heads thanks to the gorgeous silhouette this car gives. 

We are used to seeing more aggressive styling in previous Aston Martin Vantage models, such as those styling cues adopted in the GT8 and GT12, however the standard Vantage was quite subtle. This is not the case with this all-new Vantage. Specific attention is drawn to the rear of the car which is dominated by a fully-functioning diffuser, and a pair of prominent exhaust tips.

Interior and Tech

The all-new Vantage features bespoke Pirelli P Zero tyres, along with three enticing driving modes: Sport, Sport Plus and Track, which further increase characteristics such as exhaust volume, steering feel, throttle response when working your way up to the 'Track' setting. As if that wasn't enough, this is the first Aston to feature a new e-diff - which is more advanced than a mechanical LSD - allowing for many flamboyant moves on a track if desired, as this new diff can go from open to locked in a few milliseconds. Add in adjustable dampers and torque vectoring braking and this all-new Aston is sure to be a favourite around a track or deserted B-road. 

The interior is wonderfully luxurious with, body hugging seats and materials wrapped in the finest leather and Alcantara®, with the 'cockpit' resembling a fighter jet somewhat, with buttons arranged in a commanding style within the centre console, complete with 8-inch LCD screen and if you wish, lashings of colour matching the car's exterior paint choice. As with many Aston Martin models, extras can be chosen from the 'Sports Plus Collection' comprising of Sports Seats and steering wheel, lashings of carbon fibre and a premium audio set-up too.

Stunning Performance and Specifications

The all-new Aston Martin Vantage has no trouble when it comes to superior performance. Interestingly, the first-generation Vantage had a larger 4.3-litre V8 whereas this all-new Vantage uses a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8. However, don't let the slightly smaller engine fool you. The 'old' Vantage produced between 380-440bhp during its lifetime, via a number of various versions. The all-new Vantage produces a monumental 503bhp with 62mph dealt with in just 3.6 seconds and go onto reach 195mph. In contrast, its predecessor took between 4.5 and 4.9 seconds depending on spec, showing a more than significant performance enhancement on this all-new Vantage.

With the birth of this new Aston Martin Vantage, we cannot wait to see what's next in the Aston Martin story!

Aston Martin Vantage GTE 2018 by Aston Martin Racing

Just hours after the launch of the all-new Vantage 2018, Aston Martin Racing - or AMR, revealed the racing version at a live unveiling in London; the Aston Martin Vantage GTE 2018.

Developed alongside the road car, the new V8 Vantage GTE developed by Aston Martin Racing will replace the hugely successful old Vantage GTE racer which has been winning races since 2012, taking 37 victories including some impressive Le Mans 24 Hour class wins. The all-new racer will compete in the World Endurance Championship (WEC) as well as the famous Le Mans 24 Hours.

You don't need a keen eye to see the differences between the road car and new Vantage GTE race car engineered by AMR thanks to the huge rear wing, vast bonnet vents, menacing front splitter along with an incredible carbon fibre rear splitter to give unprecedented downforce. Again, all these body modifications are complimented with copious amounts of carbon fibre used all around this track monster for lightness and of course because it looks so good!

It uses the same 4.0-litre turbocharged V8 from the road car, but it's been enhanced to deliver more than 530bhp! Well, it is a race car after all!

New Vantage Team Experience

Team members from our Aston Martin dealerships in Wilmslow and London have been getting to know the new Vantage inside-out at the company's official launch event in Spain. After trying out the car's track credentials at the Circuito de Navarra, they put the car through its paces on a variety of roads, really getting a feel for what the new Vantage is all about - raw athleticism, enticing performance and an immersive driving experience.

The team reported back full of enthusiasm for the new Vantage, and some of the images they sent through were stunning. What's clear from the photographs is the incredibly array of colour choices which looked all the more dazzling in the Spanish sunshine.
