Aston Martin has released the first official photos of the next-generation Vantage.
Set to be unveiled later this year, the model looks virtually identical to the car that was shown in a patent filing back in June.
While camouflage hides some of the styling details, we can see the model will have slender headlights and a unique grille which echoes the Vulcan.
Moving further back, there’s front fender vents, a rakish windscreen, and large wheels which are backed up by a high-performance braking system. The Vantage also has an aggressive rear end with a massive diffuser that is flanked by a dual exhaust system.
Aston Martin is keeping details under wraps but the car is expected to ride on a shortened version of the DB11’s aluminum platform.
The DB11’s twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine is also slated to carryover but it remains unclear if the company will reduce its output from 503 hp (375 kW) and 513 lb-ft (695 Nm) of torque. If the performance figures remain unchanged, the Vantage should be an absolute blast as the larger DB11 can rocket from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 4.0 seconds and onto a top speed of 187 mph (301 km/h).
