Some were born to hunt, and some were born to be hunted. The Aston Martin Vantage most definitely falls into the former category. In racing guise, the Vantage GTE mercilessly harried its rivals to win ultra-gruelling the 2020 Le Mans 24 Hours race and secure the GT World Championship Manufacturer and Driver titles. The bullet-proof engineering values that have made the Vantage GTE utterly dominant on the racetrack have cascaded down to the Vantage Coupe and Roadster road car models. Naturally, though, the beautiful, handcrafted interiors of the road cars offer up unsurpassed levels of luxury that Aston Martin's racing drivers must do without on the track.
Both feature the most powerful and provocative design language ever seen in a Vantage and exude the same blood-curdling predator prowess that has struck such fear into Aston Martin’s rivals on the track. Along with the modernity of purpose expressed in the Vantage’s styling, a sense of heritage – as it does with every contemporary Aston Martin – still runs deep, with evocative echoes of previous models that have proudly carried the Vantage name.
One the road, as on the track, both the Vantage Coupe and Roadster are pure driver's cars, able to immerse and involve you in every single journey intensively. With a frame crafted from lightweight, bonded aluminium and near-perfect 50:50 weight distribution, the Vantage provides the exemplary athletic poise and mesmerising agility possessed by a true predator. The 503BHP 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine can serve up a burst of savage performance with the merest caress of the throttle pedal, to win the hunt every single time.
In 2021, to celebrate Aston Martin’s return to the Formula One racing grid for the first time in 60 years, the Vantage F1 Edition was introduced in both Coupé and Roadster versions. The most focused roadgoing Vantage yet produced, it’s singularly focused on reducing laptimes without compromising on-road ability.
