Vantage for Real Drivers

The all-new Aston Martin Vantage made its grand entrance in the Middle East recently in Dubai.

A testament to Aston Martin’s iconic legacy, the new Vantage represents the pinnacle of unadulterated driving exhilaration. With every curve and contour meticulously crafted to evoke a sense of pure performance, it stands as a symbol of unyielding confidence on the road.

The second of Aston Martin’s next generation of sportscars, the new Vantage sets a new benchmark of driving purity, for drivers who relish in the challenge that a fast sports car represents. Aston Martin Vantage, in essence, is engineered for real drivers, says the luxury carmaker.

Powered by a heavily reworked, hand-built 4.0 Twin-Turbo V8 engine, the new Vantage is the fastest in the nameplate’s history. With peaks of 665PS and a colossal 800Nm of torque, it also makes the biggest-ever jump in power and torque compared to the model it succeeds, those increases of 155PS and 115Nm equating to gains of 30 per cent and 15 per cent respectively. Mated to an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission this is enough to propel the two-seater sports car to a top speed of 325 km/h and punch it from a standstill to 100 km/h in just 3.4 sec.

The new-generation Vantage is a game-changer. A body standing 30 mm wider with a more muscular stance is accentuated by a completely redesigned front-end featuring a 38 per cent larger recontoured veined grille aperture, offering 29 per cent increase in mass airflow for additional cooling. Further cooling intakes set into the bumper either side of the grille sharpen the front-end’s features, while the new integrated splitter, with a wider and lower stance, adds drama as well as aerodynamic function, providing high speed stability through lift reduction. This distinctive front-end treatment is completed by all-new Matrix LED headlamp design with integrated DRLs, featuring Aston Martin’s new light signature.

Elsewhere, the new Vantage sees a return of the iconic Aston Martin side strake, which now forms the sharp focal point of revised vents in each flank. Standard-fit 21-inch forged alloy wheels fill the wider wheel arches to perfection, creating a purposeful stance that exudes power and poise in equal measure. Frameless door mirrors and presenting door handles are also new to Vantage, while a wider rear bumper incorporating side vents and larger diameter quad exhaust tailpipes ensure the Vantage looks as dramatic from the rear as it does from the front.  

Vantage is a hardcore sports car at heart, but this doesn’t mean it makes sacrifices when it comes to design, comfort or equipment levels. The new-generation Vantage makes a breathtaking statement with an all-new ultra-luxury interior defined by flawless architectural lines, swathed in the finest materials and packed with state-of-the-art connected technology and a stunning surround sound system developed by audio partner, Bowers & Wilkins. It is the second model to feature Aston Martin’s next-generation infotainment.

The first deliveries of Vantage in the Middle East are scheduled to start in Q4 2024. Base price starts at $179,000.
