The engine is hooked up to an automatic transmission with eight gears from ZF, rocketing the 2025 Vantage to 60 miles per hour (97 kph) in 3.4 seconds and up to 202 mph (325 kph). The British automaker says the launch control is new and that it features a trick ESP, adjustable traction control, an e-diff, and a few other things that aid its performance.
On top of that, the model boasts increased torsional rigidity and lateral stiffness courtesy of the retuned chassis, which features new intelligent adaptive dampers. As a result, the car is feistier around corners and more refined compared to its predecessor. Stopping power comes from the updated brakes with a retuned booster, 400 mm (15.7 in) front, and 360 mm (14.2 in) cross-drilled discs, upgradable to carbon ceramic as an option.
The interior was also updated with the manufacturer reshaping the central part of the dashboard, where the new 10.25-inch infotainment system sits further down below the thinner air vents. The entire center console sends Porsche vibes with its styling and layout, and it is great to see that the company has retained the physical buttons, as drivers don't have to access the new display to control most functions.
Future buyers will be able to specify it with a heated steering wheel, ventilated seats with 16-way adjustment, colored Alcantara headliner, colored carpets, semi-aniline leather upholstery, a Bowers & Wilkins premium audio, and a few other goodies that are on the options list.
Production of Aston Martin's 2025 Vantage will kick off soon, and deliveries will commence in the second quarter of the year. Pricing has yet to be announced.
