In designing the new Vantage, Aston Martin eschewed the styling that has embraced with every model for the last decade or so. But to showcase the design, it’s only displayed the car in one of two colors: a dark shade of grey called Tungsten Silver, or a bright shade of yellow called Lime Essence.
Fortunately those aren’t the only colors in which it’ll be offered. Customers will be able to choose between no fewer than 30 different exterior paint options. Add to those nearly as many graphics packages and a smattering of other exterior trim options. The possibilities may not quite be endless. But they are rather extensive.
You Can Still Taste The Lime
Here we have just two of those cosmetic configurations. Released to coincide with the first press drives in Portugal, the new Vantage is pictured here in black and in white. And we dare say the new sports car looks even better in those shades than it does in the tungsten and lime in which we’ve seen it to date.
That retina-searing shade isn’t entirely gone, though. For better or worse, the neon hue still adorns the front splitters and rear diffusers on both cars pictured. And for our part, we’re not sure we’d go that route. But the manufacturer is clearly betting big on associating that color with this model. it’s even wrapped the racing version in the same.
What’s more is that the black car features more of that eye-catching shade inside. Not only in the contrasting top-stitching on the leather, but in large swaths of interior trim. The white car, though, is relatively more tastefully appointed inside, with blue stitching and carbon-fiber trim.
They just go to show, though, the extensive range of options that a high-end automaker like Aston Martin can offer on such low-production machinery. As well it should, considering the six figures it charges for each of these new vehicles.
