The 2019 Aston Martin Vantage is now rolling off the production line at Aston Martin’s Gaydon plant and the first deliveries are expected to take place later this month.
The Vantage is hand-built at Aston Martin’s plant in Gaydon, Warwickshire, where it joins the Rapide S, the DB11 family, and the soon to be launched DBS Superleggera. The new Vantage is the second in a line of seven new models that Aston Martin plans to launch over a period of seven years as part of its “Second Century Plan.”
The 2019 Aston Martin Vantage shares its platform with the DB11, although about 70 percent of its parts are unique. Compared to the DB11, the Vantage is 11-inches shorter and weighs in at 3,373 pounds. Under the hood the 2019 Vantage will arrive with a Mercedes-AMG sourced 4.0L V8 with 503 horsepower and 505 lb-ft. of torque, that’s mated to an eight=speed automatic transmission. A manual transmission will eventually be offered, but it’s reportedly at least a year away. The new Vantage reaches 60 mph in 3.6 seconds and has a top speed of 195 mph. If you want more power, a V12 powered Vantage is being considered.
“The outgoing Vantage was the single most successful model in Aston Martin’s history and we believe its successor will surpass that,” stated Aston Martin President and CEO, Dr Andy Palmer.
