Overview Aston Martin Vantage
Few cars combine beauty and driving pleasure quite like the 2023 Aston Martin Vantage. Whether in coupe or convertible form, it’s striking in its haute couture-inspired suit of flawless pressed metal.
Engine, Transmission, and Performance
Under the hood of the Vantage is either a spectacular, lightning-fast 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 or a monster 5.2-liter twin-turbo V-12. The base V-8 makes 503 or 528 horsepower and 505 lb-ft of torque.
The V-12 engine puts out 690 horsepower and Aston claims it’s good for zero to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds. But we think that’s a conservative estimate. However, using the standard model’s manual creates a cleaner connection to the transmission than an automatic. Also has the added benefit of reducing 209 pounds in performance. The V-8 Vantage sounds pleasing, from a low baritone growl at idle to a high-pitched roar as it nears redline.
Interior, Comfort, and Cargo
The drama of the exterior continues inside thanks to new materials and countless possible accessories. Vantage’s fashionable options, such as a fully leather interior, heated and ventilated seats, a carbon fiber steering wheel, embroidered headrests and several different finishes, among many other features, are easy to use in your interests. Storage space in the salon is also limited, except for the shallow central console and door.
Convertible’s power-operated fabric roof folds up and down quickly and features a Z shape. While the Vantage Roadster has a slightly smaller trunk than the coupe. We’re told that it’s still able to fit a full-sized golf bag.
