Total Control & Pure Emotion

A Classic Silhouette

Sporting, yet elegant. Powerful, yet pure. The classic exterior lines of V8 Vantage are world famous. Distilling the essence of Aston Martin design into a compact, sporting body was a challenge our designers didn’t take lightly. Now, 12 years since its global debut, the 2016 V8 Vantage has been refined; the same lithe exterior shape but with exquisite new features and styling.

From Concept to Reality

Vantage was born from an ambition. An ambition to create an Aston Martin which retained the renowned GT capability of DB9 and Vanquish but with a lighter, more compact body shape. Taking 100 years of Aston Martin design expertise and technical knowledge we produced a car which looked back to a legendary Aston Martin model name, but looked forward to a new era of pure sporting ability.

V8 Vantage; the definitive sports car experience.

V8 Vantage Sketch

What started as the V8 Vantage has now developed into the stunning Vantage range. A range that displays a breadth of sporting capability and power. But one things remains the same, the perfect balance of the Vantage exterior form.

Adhering to the ‘golden-ratio’ that lies at the heart of all Aston Martins, V8 Vantage was specifically designed to display a pure and uncomplicated exterior stance but one that was primed with athletic ability. Breathtaking in motion, pure from any angle – V8 Vantage proves that the most complex thing to create is simplicity.


Rakish Roadster

Complementing the V8 Vantage Coupe is the rakish V8 Vantage Roadster. We didn’t compromise on quality or driving experience. Every thrill, every quality, every material is the same.

A fitted fabric roof fits tightly, designed to take nothing from the sporting line of the exterior. Retractable in motion and stylishly stored within an elegant tonneau, the roof is available in a number of distinctive colours.

Compact but

Designing a sports car might mean compromising on capacity and storage. V8 Vantage does the impossible. 300ltrs of storage space and one of the largest cockpits in its sector means this car is up to 3 times larger than some rivals.

Extra space isn’t limited to the interior. A large-capacity fuel tank has been specifically designed for extended range between fuel stops.

An Interior of
Pure Luxury

Each V8 Vantage displays an interior of exquisite quality. Soft, supple, hand-stitched leather swathes the seats, dashboard and door panels. Intricate, aluminium-faced instruments are designed to resemble the technical look of a chronograph watch. Everything you look at and touch has been lovingly crafted to give visual and tactile pleasure.
