Next Generation Sports Car Unveiled

The latest model from Aston Martin made its Qatar debut at Alfardan Luxury Motors.

The country’sofficial dealership for the esteemed British marque introduced the Vantage in a series of viewings at the state-of-the-art Aston Martin showroom in Alfardan Towers, West Bay, Doha.

“We’re delighted to present the all-new Vantage in Qatar,” said Samer Bou Dargham, General Manager of Alfardan Luxury Motors.

“Engineered for real drivers, Vantage has immaculate style, unforgettable performance and inimitable character; it embodies the sporting qualities the line has become synonymous with since 1964. With class-leading outputs and razor-sharp handling, I have no doubt the motoring enthusiasts here will be thrilled by the new generation model.”

Powered by a heavily reworked, hand-built 4.0 Twin-Turbo V8 engine, the new Vantage is the fastest in the nameplate’s history. With peaks of 656hp and a colossal 800Nm of torque it also makes the biggest-ever jump in power and torque compared to the model it succeeds. Mated to an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission, this is enough to propel the two-seater sports car to a top speed of 325km/h and punch it from a standstill to 100km/h in just 3.4 seconds.

From the first glimpse you know the new generation Vantage is a game-changer. A body standing 30mm wider with a more muscular stance is accentuated by a completely redesigned front end featuring a 38% larger recontoured veined grille aperture, offering 29% increase in mass airflow for additional cooling. Further cooling intakes set into the bumper either side of the grille sharpen the front-end’s features, while the new integrated splitter, with a wider and lower stance, adds drama as well as aerodynamic function, providing high speed stability through lift reduction. This distinctive front-end treatment is completed by new Matrix LED headlamp design with integrated DRLs, featuring Aston Martin’s new light signature.

Elsewhere the new Vantage sees a return of the iconic Aston Martin side strake, which now forms the sharp focal point of revised vents in each flank. Standard-fit 21in forged alloy wheels fill the wider wheel arches to perfection, creating a purposeful stance that exudes power and poise in equal measure. Frameless door mirrors and presenting door handles are also new to the model, while a wider rear bumper, incorporating side vents and larger diameter quad exhaust tailpipes, ensures the vehicle looks as dramatic from the rear as it does from the front.  

The new generation Vantage makes a breathtaking statement with an ultra-luxury interior defined by flawless architectural lines, swathed in the finest materials and packed with state-of-the-art connected technology and a stunning surround sound system developed by audio partner, Bowers & Wilkins. It is the second model to feature Aston Martin’s next-generation infotainment.
