Aston Martin Vantage REVEALED in Official Spy Photos

The history of the Aston Martin Vantage name

The history of the Aston Martin Vantage name

Before the year is out Aston Martin will not only debut its new 2018 FIA GTE Vantage race vehicle, but also its new twin-turbocharged V8 Vantage road auto, the long overdue replacement for the current 13 year old Vantage.

Aston Martin has started to peel back the cover on its all-new Vantage coupe, which has been caught undergoing final validation testing. The baby Aston Martin is instead influenced by the DB10 - designed for the James Bond movie Spectre - and the Vulcan hypercar. The new model will be the second all-new Aston Martin to launch, following the 2016 launch of the DB11 GT supercar.

It will use a front-engined, rear-wheel drive architecture related to the DB11 but, unlike the old V8 Vantage, there will be greater visual differentiation between the two cars.

The new Vantage is set to be built with both V8 and V12 engine variants, and the entry level version is reported to come fitted with the same engine as the new V8 DB11 - a 4.0-litre turbocharged V8. It is still yet to be determined whether the Vantage will produce higher outputs than the 375kW/700Nm it develops in the rival AMG GT, and whether it will have the same seven-speed dual-clutch transaxle gearbox or utilise the ZF-sourced eight-speed automatic from the DB11, as well as if it will remain to be offered with a manual gearbox option like the current auto. The 4.0-litre twin turbocharged V8 is expected to produce about 500bhp in the standard Vantage.

With the outgoing V8 Vantage now starting at £94,995 Aston Martin ownership is likely to be a six-figure buy in when the auto is available to order later in the year.
