New Vantage! Bond style, AMG Power, British Design! – Full Review

StoneBridge & K-Syran - Starry Night

The Ultra desirable New Aston Martin Vantage!!

One can’t help it. It goes through your mind immediately, that scenario: Q branch, MI6, exploding pens. Shaken, not stirred. Bond!

And it’s only compounded when you come face to face with the new Vantage. It’s just so special to behold. And an adrenaline rush to drive! But most importantly, it’s not just a small DB11, it’s now a proper sports car of its own.

During planning for Spectre, Bond director Sam Mendes visited Gaydon to see the DB11 to use for bond. But he came across a scale model of what was then a concept for this very Vantage. And thus the stunning DB10 was born! But the Vantage, shames even Bond’s car.

Now on a completely new aluminium based platform, shared in part with DB11 but 30% differentiated for Vantage. It’s a car squarely aimed at the likes of 911, Audi R8 and AMG GT!

Speaking of AMG: the new Vantage features AMG’s amazing 4.0 Bi Turbo V8, with a Hot V set up allowing for no lag and huge torque (685nm)!!

So let’s explore the details of this new generation of Vantage, and put it through it’s paces on the road!! In this review I explore:

– Bond style short intro

– Interior Design
– MB infotainment system
– The AMG Engine
– Chassis /architecture changes
