Sun Sets Over Aston Martin Vantage With HRE’s Custom Bronze Rims

One could argue that the Aston Martin Vantage is one of the prettiest cars in the word. Its design is almost timeless, clean and full of voluptuous curves, as opposed to the dynamic creases and angular styling found on some of its rivals.

The thing about beautiful cars is that you need to be careful if you ever decide to change anything – like, say, fit a set of en it comes to custom wheels. However, in this particular instance, we seem to have a good match.

This Vantage is sitting on a set of P104SC rims by HRE, measuring 21-inches in diameter and with a Brushed Bronze finish, which is merely one of the 79 available finishes for this particular wheel model.While we’ll let you be the judge of how well they go with the car, we happen to think that white and bronze (or gold) can make for a good match, generally speaking – just ask Apple.

Of course, if you want your Vantage to look more sporty than elegant, then something like this Wheelsandmore-tuned one might be what you’re looking for, especially since it was modded to produce 671 HP (680 PS) and 605 lb-ft (820 Nm) of torque – almost as much as the DBS Superleggera.

If you don’t want to mess with the engine, it’s not that you’ll be left wanting for power, as the baby Aston’s AMG sourced 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 puts out 503 HP (510 PS) and 505 lb-ft (685 Nm) of torque. That’s enough to take you from zero to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.7 seconds, and max out at 195 mph (314 km/h). Pretty much more than anyone will ever need in the real world in 99.9 percent of their time, if you ask us – plus you get to keep the factory warranty which, in cars at this price range, is a very good thing to have.

      Well it looks kinda soft (headlights)but overall beautiful car…

  • Bo Hanan

    This is an ugly car. The overall profile works, but the front & rear clips are clumsy and “ricer-ish.”
    Aston Martin needs to clean this up asap! A variation of the DBS front/rear clips (below) would be fine.

  • Nordschleife

    I no doubt love how the Vantage looks but some color trim combinations do make it look less than appealing. However I am glad to say that this isn’t one of them.

    Woow it looks like a Tesla Roadster!
    I don’t understand why only BMW, Mazda and Mercedes can make exiting distinctive design.

    I don’t like the camber on that rear wheel. Throws me off. Beautiful car however.
