INTRODUCING NEW VANTAGE: ENGINEERED FOR REAL DRIVERS
The latest in an iconic bloodline, Aston Martin is proud to announce the new Vantage at INR 3.99 crore (ex-showroom, excluding customizations). The quintessential Aston Martin sports car and the most driver-focused and fastest Vantage in the famous nameplate’s 74-year history, it is an authentic, unadulterated celebration of pure performance, engineered to deliver maximum thrills with maximum confidence.
A design refocused through a contemporary lens, Vantage champions the qualities that have gripped enthusiasts for generations but are increasingly hard to find in today’s sports car market. As such Vantage makes a stand for disenfranchised devotees of breathtaking power, razor-sharp handling, and the perfect balance of a finely-tuned front-engine, rear-wheel drive chassis.
Aston Martin Chief Executive Officer, Amedeo Felisa, said: “As we enter a period of pivotal change in the world of high-performance cars it is essential to remain true to those qualities upon which a legendary marque has been built. Any car bearing the Vantage name has much to live up to, which is why this newest model makes an unwavering commitment to high performance in its purest and most explicit form. Class-leading power and speed establish its credentials, but it is through expert application of the latest technologies to the Vantage’s perfectly balanced front-engine rear-drive chassis that we have created a sports car with addictive capability. Together with assertive styling, all-new interior, and state-of-the-art infotainment, Vantage is world-class in every respect”.
POWER AND PERFORMANCE
With a formidable 665PS/800Nm output from its 4.0-liter V8 Twin Turbo engine, the new Vantage accelerates to 60mph in just 3.4 seconds, reaching a top speed of 202mph. Engineered for maximum thrills, its chassis and powertrain are finely tuned to deliver unparalleled driver engagement, complemented by a perfect 50:50 weight distribution.
TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION
Technical advancements abound, including industry-leading Active Vehicle Dynamics, Bilstein DTX adaptive dampers, and an Electronic Rear Differential (E-diff). AML-specific 21” Michelin Pilot S 5 tires ensure optimal grip and performance.
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.
Vantage is the second model to feature Aston Martin’s next-generation infotainment. Created in-house and first introduced in DB12, it is entirely bespoke and developed in-house from scratch. Supplemented by a new Aston Martin customer connectivity app that supports iOS and Android devices, it allows interaction, control, and feedback to and from the customer’s Vantage via their device.
HERITAGE AND LEGACY
The Vantage nameplate has a rich history dating back to 1950, embodying Aston Martin’s commitment to immaculate style, unmatched performance, and undeniable character. As the latest iteration of this esteemed lineage, the new Vantage represents the epitome of driving purity and performance.
THE FUTURE OF PERFORMANCE
Aston Martin CEO, Amedeo Felisa, affirms the brand’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of high-performance engineering. The new Vantage not only delivers class-leading power and speed but also harnesses cutting-edge technology to provide a truly addictive driving experience.
ENHANCED HANDLING AND DYNAMICS
The Vantage’s highly evolved bonded aluminum structure, combined with perfect weight distribution and state-of-the-art suspension, lays the foundation for an unparalleled driving experience. Advanced adaptive dampers and precision steering ensure exceptional control and agility in all conditions.
ICONIC DESIGN AND PRESENCE
The new Vantage boasts a muscular physique and unmistakable presence, with design cues inspired by Aston Martin’s legendary One-77 supercar. From its recontoured grille to its wider wheel arches, every detail exudes power and poise.
SUPREME LUXURY AND TECHNOLOGY
Inside, the Vantage offers a blend of sporting ambiance and supreme luxury, with an all-new ultra-luxury interior featuring premium materials and state-of-the-art technology. From the exquisite craftsmanship to the immersive Bowers & Wilkins audio system, every aspect is designed to elevate the driving experience.
Roberto Fedeli, Aston Martin Chief Technical Officer, said “The art of creating a truly great sports car in 2024 is applying cutting-edge technology in a way that enhances and intensifies the driving experience yet does nothing to remove the driver from the process of driving. Vantage will make headlines for the huge increases in power and torque over the outgoing model, but it’s the vivid way in which it deploys such immense performance that will seduce enthusiasts and purists. With a perfectly balanced front-engined rear-wheel drive chassis aided by industry-leading Active Vehicle Dynamics, it combines outright capability with progression and exploitability. Matched by muscular styling and completed by an all-new ultra-luxury interior packed with the latest connected technology and infotainment, it is the perfect contemporary interpretation of a time-honored legend”.
