Aston Martin Vantage 2018 revealed

The 2019 Corvette ZR1 Mad Max samples new AMG-powered Aston Vantage

Now there's a new Vantage and it stands out even more from the DB11, and it does it with 503 horsepower. That means something both visually distinctive and technological impressive.

One of its most debated features of the latest Vantage was what direction the design would be taken in. "It's more of a cockpit feel", said Holgate.

It starts at the front, with a new fascia and ultra-slim LED headlamps. It's 284 mm shorter than a DB11, and 34mm shorter than a Porsche 911. That side strake helps bleed air from the front wheel arch, cutting lift, while also feeding air along the Vantage's flanks. For example, the aggressive front splitter directs airflow underneath the vehicle where a system of fences channels it to where it's needed and then out the back via the diffuser.

Just like Dr. Who, Aston Martin knows a little about regeneration. The unit will likely be based on the same Mercedes-AMG 4-litre bi-turbo V8 as will be fitted to the Vantage road auto. In the DB11, the engine is tuned to deliver 503 hp and 513 lb-ft.

To ensure the new Vantage is the best handling model yet, the ZF transmission is mounted at the rear of the auto for an optimum 50:50 weight distribution, while torque vectoring adds further precision around corners, with a speed-dependent electric power steering system that has just 2.4 turns lock-to-lock.

The bump in power from the 430 hp in the current Vantage should see the 0-60 miles per hour time drop to around 4.0 seconds from the current 4.8. Despite consistent pace, 2017 proved to be a season too far with Ferrari's 488GTE Pro instead taking the championship so there are high hopes that the 2018 model will get the British brand back on top.

The Vantage launched in 2005 when Ford Motor owned Aston Martin. This includes dynamic stability control, dynamic torque vectoring, active dampers, and electronic rear differential, a company first. Made from bonded aluminum, it has a solidly-mounted rear subframe and Adaptive Damping, with Skyhook technology.

Similarly, estimated net infiltration was 65 in 2014 compared to 97 in 2013. We believed two to three militants were trapped.

Suspension is front independent double wishbone, while the rear is a multi-link unit.

The brakes are two-piece, ventilated 400mm steel rotors up front with six-piston calipers, and 360mm down back with four-piston calipers, behind standard 20-inch forged alloy wheels shod with Pirelli P Zero tyres (255/40) at the front, and 295/35 down back), specifically developed for the Vantage. The vehicle sits on 20in alloy wheels with ventilated brake discs at the front and rear.

Inside, there's another big shakeup. Carbon fiber interior trim is optional.

At the rear the new full-length strip light that runs along the lip spoiler is also an example of bold new design language being experimented by Aston Martin. Other standard equipment includes front and rear parking sensors, keyless entry and start and a rear-view camera. WiFi is also included. In person, it's somehow more striking than the DB11 in that it looks insane.

It has plenty to live up to, mind. To replace the most successful model in company history is no small feat.

Production of the new model will begin soon, with the first customer deliveries scheduled to begin in the second quarter of 2018. It'll be priced from $149,995.
