One of the biggest departures from the classic Aston Martin lines can be seen up front, where the grille now goes further down to meet the air splitter, and also has a border to it that kinda sticks out on the sides. The design story continues inside the Vantage, with a dynamic and focused sports car cockpit that rejects long, fluid curves in favour of sharp, focused lines denoting the more aggressive nature of the car. A high waist interior theme and lower driving position creates a more immersive driving experience, and contributes to significant gains in occupant space and significant improvement in headroom compared with the outgoing Vantage. The heart of the Vantage is Aston Martin's potent new alloy, 4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine which sits low and as far back in the chassis as possible for optimal center-of-gravity and perfect 50:50 weight distribution. A great new addition is the first Electronic Rear Differential in the Aston Martin range.
