Marek Reichman must have the hardest job in the world - in the last few years, he’s been asked to design the replacements for two of the most beautiful cars on the road...the Aston Martin DB9 and the Vantage.
We all know how amazing the DB11 is, but arguably the task of replacing the Vantage was even harder. But designed it he has, and it’s certainly no shrinking violet.
With styling clearly influenced by the DB10 from James Bond Spectre, the new Vantage has such an aggressive, athletic stance that it looks like it would eat anything on the road in front of it.
The main reason behind that has to be the enormous front grille in the shape of the famous Aston wings and taking up the whole of the nose – it’s certainly going to be a contentious styling point, but trust us – it looks even better in the metal.
The new Vantage aims to be a proper supercar too, coming with a 503bhp twin-turbo V8 from AMG along with their technical wizardry, but in this application going through a ZF 8spd automatic gearbox (the best auto box there is).
We know the Vantage is incredibly popular here at BOTB and we’re sure you’re eager to get behind the wheel - get your tickets to win the new Vantage now!
