The Vantage Nameplate’s Legendary Heritage

The Vantage name dates back to 1950 when it was first used for a high-performance engine package for the legendary DB2 race car. In 1964, it became an official model name with the Vantage-badged DB5. The first standalone Vantage model launched in the early 1970s, cementing the nameplate’s prominent role in Aston Martin’s lineup.

Throughout the decades, the Vantage has built a reputation as one of the most iconic sports cars, achieving incredible success in endurance racing events like the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Record-Breaking Performance

Powered by a heavily revised 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, the new Vantage generates a mighty 665 PS and an immense 800 Nm of torque. These staggering output figures represent a 30% increase in horsepower and 15% more torque compared to its predecessor.

Mated to an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission, the new Vantage rockets from 0-100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds and can reach a breathtaking top speed of 325 km/h. A new launch control system optimizes acceleration from a standing start.

Razor-Sharp Dynamics

The new Vantage rides on Aston Martin’s latest bonded aluminum chassis with increased torsional rigidity for sharper handling dynamics. Retuned adaptive dampers, a quicker steering rack, and bespoke Michelin Pilot Sport 5 S tires work together to deliver incredibly precise and tactile feedback.

Drivers can dial in their preferred level of traction control intervention or switch it off for a pure, unfiltered driving experience. The intelligent electronic differential and torque vectoring ensure optimal grip in all situations.

Bold New Design

With its muscular stance and aggressive aerodynamic detailing, the new Vantage exudes a menacing road presence. A larger grille, integrated front splitter, and side strakes channel airflow to reduce lift and increase cooling. At the rear, a wider bumper with side vents and quad exhaust outlets complete the athletic look.

Inside, flawless architectural lines, hand-stitched leather upholstery, and the latest connected technology create an exquisite yet driver-focused cabin environment.

Racing Pedigree

The new Vantage’s launch coincides with one of the most prolific eras in Aston Martin’s 111-year racing history. The marque has emerged as a formidable force in Formula 1, a dominant presence in GT racing where the Vantage boasts an illustrious record, and a front-line challenger in the World Endurance Championship.

Personalization Options

Discerning owners can further personalize their Vantage through an extensive range of options and accessories. Aston Martin’s bespoke Q division offers limitless customization possibilities to create a truly unique sports car tailored to their desires.

The new Aston Martin Vantage is now available for booking in Malaysia with a starting price of RM950,000 before duties, taxes, and options. It comes with a 3-year factory warranty, extendable up to 20 years for ultimate peace of mind.

With its breathtaking performance, exhilarating dynamics, and unmistakable Aston Martin design DNA, the new Vantage redefines the ultimate driver’s sports car experience. This iconic model writes the latest chapter in a legendary lineage spanning over seven decades of thrilling motoring heritage.
