For seven decades, the Vantage name has been adorning quite a number of Aston Martin models, giving them street cred and a prestige like no other. From the very first DB2 fitted with the Vantage option all the way to the present day, this Grand Tourer has been giving drivers pleasure behind the tiller. And now, a new model arrives, bringing the nameplate to the new millennium.
The design, for one, is a mix of bold and muscular curves, short overhangs, and powerful haunches. These are mixed with front and rear difuesers that are both aesthetically pleasing and functional at the same time. Then there are the side gills that help direct air to all the right places underneath the car. All this gives the new Vantage optimum downforce, making it stick to the pavement like glue.
Like the outside, the cabin is an interplay of lines and zones that are both driver focused and pleasing to the eye. There is also a plethora of modern conveniences that keep the driver and passengers informed of what’s going on with the car and the world outside. Of course, the luxurious interior cossets them in the lap of comfort while on the move.
