Next-gen Aston Martin Vantage shot testing in Germany

Next-gen Aston Martin Vantage shot testing in Germany

What you see in the pictures is the new Aston Martin Vantage testing on a rainy day in Germany. Despite the prototype being significantly covered by swirly camouflage, the refreshed design looks similar to the DB10 from James Bond’s ‘Spectre’.

The Vantage’s exceedingly small dimensions make it look sportier, especially when viewed in profile, thanks to the compact rear overhang. Sources claim that Aston Martin’s latest advances in aluminium-intensive construction will find its way into the new Vantage. This will help increase torsional rigidity, while a substantial weight loss can also be expected. Both factors will allow the new Vantage to be faster and more efficient than the current car.

Powering the next-gen Vantage will be an AMG engine. Sources believe it to be a bi-turbo 4.0-litre V8 motor which will be capable of delivering about 500bhp. That’s close to 70bhp more than the current model. The uprated power output coupled with the significant weight loss means that the new car will accomplish the dash to 100kmph fairly quicker than the 4.8 seconds taken by the current model. There’s also talk of a V12 iteration to join the line-up eventually.

Expect Aston Martin to introduce the new Vantage before the end of 2017.
