  • New Aston Martin Vantage revealed
  • Similar styling to the old car
  • Still uses 4.0-litre V8 engine
  • Massive power increase to 665hp
  • All-new interior
  • Available to order now

The new Aston Martin Vantage is here, and it retains the 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 from the outgoing car. There’s no sign of electrification here.

It may look pretty similar to the outgoing car, but there are a raft of changes under the skin to make it more powerful and more fun to drive.

New Aston Martin Vantage design

Telling this new Aston Martin Vantage apart from the outgoing car is a bit like a tricky game of spot the difference from some angles, because it does look very similar to the car it replaces.

The biggest changes are found up front with the introduction of some new headlights; they’re now much more upright and swept back than before. The grille is also new for this Vantage. It may look similar to before, but there’s less of a pout than there was before, and it looks wider and more imposing.

Things down the side are pretty much the same as before, not that this is a bad thing. You have the same sleek silhouette and sporty flared wheel arches, and there are a range of new 21-inch alloy wheels to choose from.

The rear is also very similar to before. There’s the same flowing light bar flowing across the boot, and the twin tailpipes you got on the old car have been ditched in favour of a quad-pipe setup.

New Aston Martin Vantage engine and performance

As with the previous car, the new Aston Martin Vantage uses a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8, however it’s now putting out more power.

The old car had 510hp and 685Nm of torque, and this new car has been upped to 665hp and 800Nm of torque. That’s 15hp more than Porsche 911 Turbo S, and it’s 45hp more than a Ferrari Roma.

You may get a healthy dose of extra power, however it hasn’t taken much off the 0-60mph time. The new Vantage will complete the sprint in 3.4 seconds, just one tenth of a second faster than the old car. The Porsche 911 Turbo S will also do the sprint in a much more lively 2.7 seconds.

New Aston Martin Vantage interior and infotainment

While the exterior of the new Aston Martin Vantage hasn’t changed much, the interior has been thoroughly modernised using plenty of inspiration from the DB12 GT car.

It has an all-new centre console which is a lot taller than before, separating you from your passenger and helping the driver feel more cocooned. Sitting at the top of this console is Aston Martin’s new infotainment system.

You get a 10-25-inch touchscreen, and it’s the first system Aston Martin has developed in-house from scratch. We first saw it fitted to the DB12, and it features Apple CarPLay and Android Auto connectivity, as well as 3D sat nav mapping.

When can I buy the new Aston Martin Vantage?

The new Aston Martin Vantage is available to order now, with first deliveries starting in the spring. Prices haven’t been finalised just yet, but expect it to cost north of £160,000.
