Aston Martin V8 Vantage spied on test

Aston Martin V8 Vantage spied on test

We have already seen a preview of the next-gen Aston Martin V8 Vantage. However, what we have here are the spy pictures of one of the prototypes on test. 

It seems that the next-gen V8 Vantage will borrow design cues from the DB10 Concept rather than the current flagship, The DB11. The DB10 Concept’s inspiration can clearly be seen under the camouflage. Aston Martin’s newly adopted grille (from the Vulcan) can be seen paired with an aggressive splitter. The headlights, although camouflaged, seemed to be scrounged directly from the DB10. The fender vent is something first seen on the DB11 and is expected to make its way on all future Aston Martins. 

At the rear, the lip spoiler is flanked by the sleeker tail lights similar to the one seen on the current Vanquish. The Vanquish inspiration continues on the rear windscreen as well. The diffusers are a lot more prominent now.

The new Vantage V8 will be the second car to benefit from Aston Martin’s partnership with Mercedes-AMG, after the DB11 V8. The same 4-litre twin turbo V8 built by Mercedes-AMG for the AMG GT lineup will be reworked by Aston Martin. The power output will be around 500bhp, enough to send the Vantage screaming from standstill to a 100kmph in around four seconds. Aston Martin is expected to offer the new Vantage with a choice of either a six-speed manual or a dual-clutch automatic transmission.
