2018 Aston Martin Vantage revealed: Exclusive video tour

1y ago


British luxury sports car manufacturer Aston Martin has unveiled its long-awaited new-generation Vantage in a simultaneous global reveal across six major cities.

Earlier, our partners at CarAdvice was afforded an exclusive look at the new Vantage – the same car revealed today in Tokyo – and one of only six pre-production presentation cars Aston Martin commissioned. This particular example was shown to clients and prospective buyers in Melbourne, Sydney and the Gold Coast, even before the covers came off in the UK.

“This is a properly fast car, able to accelerate from 0–100km/h in 3.7 seconds with a top speed of 314km/h. It’s also the first Aston Martin to be equipped with an electronic rear differential that’s capable of going from fully open to 100 per cent locked in milliseconds.

Production of the new Vantage for Australia will commence in late May or early June 2018, with customer deliveries set to begin in July, according to Kevin Wall, Regional Manager Australia and New Zealand at Aston Martin.

While we at StreetFX aren't overly convinced that we like that new front end styling (it reminds us of the current generation Mazda MX-5 / Miata), the noise generated by the 357kW/680Nm AMG derived 4.0 litre twin turbo V8 is brutal!

The interior is very AMG-esque.

With a quoted 0-100 time of 3.7s, this is the view that most others on the road will see. Thankfully it is quite pretty from here!

Let us know what you think of the latest generation of Vantage in the comments!
