The 2019 Aston Martin Vantage debuts a sleek new look

The 2019 Aston Martin Vantage debuts a sleek new look

Paired to that engine is a ZF-sourced eight-speed automatic gearbox and a six-speed manual will come later.

And while we're not aware of the test car's exact goal, this sighting makes for a brilliant opportunity to remind you of the rumors that talk about the future of the 2019 Aston Martin Vantage. A large front splitter directs airflow beneath the vehicle and onto a large rear diffuser, which helps create a low pressure area under the auto to improve road holding. That's what James Bond drives; that's the one that everyone points to as one of the most handsome cars in the world, and that's the one that's easy to keep track of, with generations named DB1, DB2, DB4 and so on to DB11. Now there's a new Vantage and it stands out even more from the DB11, and it does it with 503 horsepower. But it's not all about performance - the cabin lifts plenty of aspects from Mercedes-AMG road cars, including the infotainment system.

Aston Martin finally allows the current Vantage to retire after a 12-year career, as an all-new model is in town.

The new Vantage goes on sale immediately, priced from £120,900, and brings a twin-turbo V8 engine and a new level of technology to the popular Porsche 911 rival, which has proved to be Aston's best-selling model to date.

Aston Martin president and chief executive officer, Dr Andy Palmer, said: "It speaks volumes for the outgoing Vantage that it is the single most successful model in Aston Martin's history". The Brits have really focused on making the new Vantage drive and handle like an Aston Martin should. What's ironic about this little competition is that when we first saw the BMW M8 spy photos, we all said how it reminded us of an Aston Martin, in its styling.

The United States assisted in the search for a missing Argentine submarine
In the message, the sub's captain reportedly said he was heading towards Mar del Plata with all 44 crew members in ideal health. The official said that crews of submarines in distress bang on the vessel's hull to alert passing ships to their location.

The British marque highlights its new design with features such as a more "predatory stance" with "minimal front and rear overhangs, muscular flanks and broad haunches" to express a new dynamic aesthetic. The vehicle is 11 Inches shorter than the original DB11 auto.

The new Vantage is also the first Aston Martin to get an electronic rear differential (E-Diff).

"We've collaborated closely with Aston Martin's Gaydon headquarters to develop the road and race cars in parallel". Aston Martin claims a 0-60mph time of under 3.5 seconds, and a top speed of 195mph. Each makes the car's performance, and its engine sound, more aggressive. Naturally, leather and Alcantara upholstery are included, and a wide range of personalisation will be offered.

Finished in a bright lime green with orange highlights and Aston Martin decals, the Vantage GTE is a new endurance racer, set to take on the 2018 FIA World Endurance Championship.
