Aston Martin’s Beautiful 2019 Vantage Hits The Track

The next-generation Aston Martin Vantage has been snapped by our spies undergoing track testing at the Nurburgring.

We had our first glimpse at the design of the new Vantage in June when a number of patent sketches surfaced online. These spy shots confirm that those patents were the real deal and that the 2019 Vantage will indeed closely resemble James Bond’s Aston Martin DB10.

Consequently, the front-end will be dominated by a narrow snout and slim LED headlights that immediately give the new Vantage a sportier feel than ever before. At the rear, there will be slim taillights like the DB10 as well as a large lip spoiler.

When the Vantage arrives, it will initially be sold with the same twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 as the DB11, potentially producing the same 503 hp and 513 lb-ft of torque. Down the line, the twin-turbo 5.2-liter V12 found in the range-topping DB11 could make its way into a new-age V12 Vantage.

A global premiere in early 2018 is widely anticipated.

    Oh. At first, I thought “Wow, that’s a nice [Mazda] RX-9, although not as futuristic as expected”. And then I read the title/article.

    Let me ask you guys this: would you have an AMG GT or this Vantage V8?

      Thats tough but considering who I am as a person I would pick the Vantage. More exclusive and Aston is my dream car.

    Not that I’m criticizing the DB10 as ugly, but I was kind of… underwhelmed when I saw it on screen. Especially when it was in the same frame as that awesome Jaguar C-X75 concept. It didn’t seem to have the elegance or drama of the Casino Royale DBS, and it certainly didn’t have the hips or raw appeal of the C-X75.

    Still looking forward to it though.
