2018 Aston Martin Vantage – Video

2018 Aston Martin Vantage – Video

Gone are many of the Vantage’s old styling cues, including the side-strake, front and rear bumpers, and hood. You can, however, still clearly tell it’s an Aston Martin from every angle. The front takes inspiration from the Aston Martin Vulcan with a large front intake that visually stretches the width of the car. The hood has a subtle bulge that accentuates the car’s sporty persona. For those looking to instantly fall madly in love with the car, just move rearward. Between the integrated upturned ducktail spoiler and the body color matching diffusor, the rear is this car’s best angle. It’s also where Aston’s

Gone are many of the Vantage’s old styling cues, including the side-strake, front and rear bumpers, and hood. You can, however, still clearly tell it’s an Aston Martin from every angle. The front takes inspiration from the Aston Martin Vulcan with a large front intake that visually stretches the width of the car. The hood has a subtle bulge that accentuates the car’s sporty persona. For those looking to instantly fall madly in love with the car, just move rearward. Between the integrated upturned ducktail spoiler and the body color matching diffusor, the rear is this car’s best angle. It’s also where Aston’s design team incorporated a brake light design similar to that of the Valkyrie.

All the same, Aston Martin’s photos don’t do this car justice in terms of proportions or beauty. It’s small. Porsche 911 small. The wheelbase is miniscule, measuring at just 106.5 inches. But while that’s 10.0-inches longer than that of the 991 911, the 2018 Vantage’s overall length is 1.6-inch shorter than that of a 911 Turbo, coming in at 175.8 inches compared to the Porsche’s 177.1, and the Aston is also 1.4-inch narrower, while height is nearly identical at 50.1 inches. Weights should be similar as well; while Aston has only published a claimed dry weight of 3,373 lb for the Vantage, its curb weight should be close to the 911 Turbo’s 3,500 lb.

Powering the 2018 Vantage is a twin-turbocharged, wet-sump, 4.0-liter V-8 engine lifted from Mercedes-AMG’s grab-bag of high-horsepower crate engines, which made its first appearance in an Aston earlier this year under the hood of the DB11 V8. In the Vantage, the engine generates 503 hp at 6,000 rpm and 505 lb-ft of torque between 2,000-5,000 rpm. 0-60 mph is hit within a claimed 3.6 seconds (closer to that of the 450-hp 911 GTS rather than that of the 540-hp 911 Turbo), and top speed is set at 195 mph. Additionally, the Vantage receives a new exhaust system that’s more indicative of its sportier nature. It is, for all intents and purposes, the real deal.
