2019 Aston Martin Vantage: Entry-Level Stunner Revealed!

Aston Martin’s new car, the Vantage, is its latest entry to the market. Looking more like an Audi A8 instead of a James Bond-esque, sports car, it though all the bells and whistles that Mr. Bond would expect in his cars (minus the missiles). The car has a compact frame in comparisons to Aston Martin’s DB11 but still boasts a powerful 503hp and 0 to 60 in 3.3 seconds.

Key Takeaways:

  • This Vantage will continue as Aston’s entry-level model, being both smaller than the DB11 coupe and pitched more as a sports car than a grand tourer.
  • Aston quotes the exact same 503 horsepower and 498 lb-ft of torque as in the DB11, although the Vantage’s weight advantage—the factory-stated dry weight is just 3373 pounds with all available weight-saving options—should give it a performance advantage.
  • Aston promises that the Vantage will feel more responsive than the already keen DB11 V-8.
