From Tokyo to Beijing to Dubai to London to New York to Los Angeles, the all-new Aston Martin Vantage was unveiled and celebrated across the globe this month — Nov. 21st to be exact. And with good reason because the novel performance sports car boasts world-renowned design and nimble performance. Did I mention it’s striking?
Yes, a look at the outside tells a ferocious story. Everything and I mean everything has been finely tuned. “The Vantage is testament to our uncompromising pursuit of beautiful,” Aston Martin CEO Dr. Andy Palmer says. The new Vantage is immediately recognizable as an Aston Martin — with the signature hill-climb grille, sensuously crisp hood, muscular flanks, squinting greenhouse and tucked tail.
Personally, I’m an ardent fan of the Vantage’s launch color — Lime Essence. “It’s the color of a predator in nature,” explains Palmer. “Look at a wasp. Its colors warn, stay away.”
But, naturally, we can’t stay away!
Also worth noting? The cabin has undergone a much more substantial upgrade over the previous model. The British brand’s switch to a Mercedes-Benz electronic architecture has allowed for both a significant increase in equipment and a far more intuitive user interface. With this said, connectivity is now easier than ever.
Behind the wheel, the Vantage offers an exceptional driving experience. A strong bonded aluminum chassis delivers exceptionally sharp and agile handling. In fact, a 4.0-liter twin-turbo-charged V8 engine powers this beast. With an acceleration of 0 to 62 miles per hour in 3.6 seconds and a top speed of 195 mph, the Vantage performs like no other. 503-horsepower engine!
