After six years on the market, the 2025 Aston Martin Vantage has undergone a significant update. The new Vantage features refreshed aesthetics along with a substantial boost in power and chassis enhancements. According to the British supercar manufacturer, this model represents the most driver-focused and fastest Vantage since its introduction.
2025 Aston Martin Vantage: Design
Despite the mechanical changes, the Vantage’s design and styling remain unchanged. The most notable alterations are seen at the front, with a larger grille and Matrix LED headlights resembling those of the DB12. The rear bumper is wider with larger tailpipes, and customers can choose from three available liveries in addition to standard paint options.
Following the lead of the DB12, the Vantage’s dashboard has been revamped to accommodate a new 10.25-inch infotainment system complemented by physical buttons and switches. Standard features include an 11-speaker, 390-watt audio system, with an optional upgrade to a 15-speaker, 1,170-watt system from Bowers & Wilkins.
2025 Aston Martin Vantage: Specifications
The 2025 Vantage packs an upgraded 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine that produces 656 bhp and 800 Nm of torque. It marks an impressive increase of 153 bhp and 115 Nm compared to the outgoing model. Aston Martin has enhanced the AMG-derived engine by modifying cam profiles, optimizing compression ratios, installing larger turbochargers, and improving cooling. Paired with an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission sending power to the rear wheels, the Vantage achieves a claimed 0 to 100 kmph acceleration time of 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 325 kmph. The car benefits from a new launch control system and adjustable traction control to further enhance acceleration.
Enhancements & Upgrades
Beyond the engine upgrades, various other performance enhancements have been implemented to enhance the Vantage’s speed and agility. These include re-engineering and repositioning the front cross member, enhancing lateral strength between the rear suspension towers, and fitting adaptive dampers. Standard equipment for the 2025 Vantage includes 21-inch forged wheels paired with bespoke Michelin Pilot Sport 5 S tires (275/35 at the front, 325/30 at the rear). Cast-iron brake discs are standard, while carbon ceramic brakes a optional, reducing unsprung weight by 27 kg.
India Launch Date
The refreshed Vantage is expected to arrive in India in the second half of 2024, following the introduction of the DB12 last year at a starting price of Rs 4.59 crore (ex-showroom).
