THE Aston Martin Vantage has been on the market for about six years now, which means the two-seater sports car is ripe enough for an update.

For the 2025 model year, the Vantage draws inspiration from the One-77 supercar with a completely redesigned front-end featuring a larger grille and a body standing 30 mm wider.

According to Aston Martin, the grille offers 29% increase in mass airflow for additional cooling, assisted by air intakes in each corner of the front bumper. There’s also a new front splitter that provides high speed stability through lift reduction.

The interior showcases a completely new layout featuring slimmer AC vents and a 10.25-inch touchscreen, similar to the one found in the DB12.

The car comes with standard Aston Martin audio system with 11 speakers as well as override switches for Chassis, ESP and Exhaust, Lane Assist and Park Distance Control.

Alternatively, customers can opt for the 1,170-watt Bowers & Wilkins audio system that comes with a total of 15 speakers, a subwoofer, and aluminum tweeters.

The Vantage still retains the Mercedes-AMG 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine but the output has been bumped up to 665 PS and 800 Nm, representing an increase of 155 PS and 115 Nm than before.

The higher output is achieved through the use of modified cam profiles, optimised compression ratios, larger turbos, and increased cooling.

Paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission from ZF, the Vantage can accelerate from 0 to 96 km/h in 3.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 325 km/h.

Aston Martin says the standing start acceleration is aided by a new Launch Control system that channels as much torque as conditions allow, using the E-Diff, ESP slip control and engine torque management to keep wheel slip in the optimal range.

In addition to the more powerful engine, the Vantage also benefits from a bonded aluminum structure that provides a 50:50 weight distribution and increased torsional rigidity.

Not only that, the electronic power-assisted steering (EPAS) system has been retuned to provide the driver with more immediate and precise response.
