Aston Martin - Vantage Coupe/Roadster Price: from £131,100 OTR

Last Updated On: 20/01/2022

Compact dimensions, perfect proportions, pure lines and a lithe athletic stance give the latest Aston Martin Vantage unmistakable presence. 

The heart of the latest Vantage is Aston Martin’s potent new alloy, 4-litre twin-turbo V8 engine.  Set low and as far back in the chassis as possible for optimal centre-of-gravity and perfect 50:50 weight distribution, this high performance, high efficiency engine returns a CO2 figure of *245g/km yet develops 510PS at 6000rpm and 685Nm from 2000-5000rpm. With a dry weight of 1530kg this gives the Vantage formidable power-to-weight and torque-to-weight ratios.

The Vantage deploys its impressive power and torque to the rear wheels via a rear-mounted ZF eight-speed automatic transmission. Capable of accelerating from 0 to 62mph (100km/h) in 3.6 seconds and on to a maximum speed of 195mph (314km/h), it employs a sophisticated suite of integrated electronic systems to offer maximum control and driver enjoyment.

The Vantage Coupe has now been joined by the open-top Roadster version. This shares the same mechanicals with its sibling, but the outright performance figures differ very slightly: 0-62mph (100km/h) is achieved in 3.8 seconds and the top speed is 190mph (306km/h). Because of the mixed reaction to the ultra plain Mesh Grille initially offered on this latest Vantage, Aston Martin now offer the choice of this or the Vaned Grille when customers are configuring their cars. The latter option can be seen on the Roadster images.

The Vantage features a high level of standard equipment, including keyless start/stop, tyre pressure monitoring system, parking distance display, park assist and front and rear parking sensors. The In-Car Entertainment system - controlled and viewed via a centrally mounted 8” LCD screen - comprises of the Aston Martin Audio System, Bluetooth® audio and phone streaming, iPod®, iPhone® and USB playback and an integrated satellite navigation system. 

There is a simply fabulous interior, handcrafted from the finest natural materials and styled with the same confidence and purity of the exterior, the Vantage's two-seater cockpit provides comfortable space for driver, passenger and luggage. 

More recently Aston Martin launched the Vantage F1® Edition in both Coupe and Roadster versions (images 7 and 8). While sharing the same underpinnings as the standard car this special editiontage features a unique aerodynamic body kit, new 21" wheels, and racing inspired graphics. It is available in a choice of three exterior paint colours: Aston Martin Racing Green, Jet Black and Lunar White - each with gloss or satin finish. Bringing true race character into the aesthetic of the cockpit, the unique interior trim design of Vantage F1® Edition is available with a choice of Lime Green, Obsidian Black, Wolf Grey or Spicy Red contrast stripe and stitching.

Aston Martin have also promised the return of the V12 Vantage in the near future, for a stictly limited production run.
