2019 Aston Martin Vantage: Predictably Stunning

The new entry-level Aston looks awesome.
Few auto companies manage to produce such consistently good-looking cars as does Aston Martin. Barring the strange decision that was the Cygnet (a Scion iQ minicar with an Aston grille), it is becoming increasingly hard to remember the last time the British sports-car specialist turned out something that wasn’t either handsome or gorgeous. It’s a streak that the new Vantage, set to go on sale early next year, definitely isn’t going to break.

We've been expecting you: full details on Aston's twin-turbo, 503bhp V8 super coupe

This is our dedicated sports car. It’s simple, pure energy, it’s a hunter. It has a flick in the tail and the lowest nose we’ve ever produced. If the DB11 is a samurai sword, this is a scalpel.”
That’s design director Marek Reichman giving us a hands-on intro to the new Aston Martin Vantage. He’s fully spooled up now, arms flying everywhere, his language getting more design-speak by the second. I’ve pressed the pause button here, on his sword/scalpel analogy, not to point and laugh at some marketing guff, but because in truth it’s rather key.
