2018 Aston Martin Vantage rendered as a roadster looks amazing

Have you ever thought about whether Aston Martin would come out with a convertible version of its new 2018 Vantage? At this juncture, no one really knows what the future holds for this model. But we can always hope. Fortunately, there are artists who have the same desire. We all but gasped at what Nikita Aksyonov wants for a possible Aston Martin Vantage Roadster.

It was just the other day when the automaker released the coupe, and already, we have a rendering of it here. And one thing we would say is that the rendered roadster looks just like the coupe, which is a great thing. Aksyonov did not give it a fixed roof, but instead, it will be getting a hard rear deck with a cowled tonneau cover, similar to that of the outgoing Vantage Roadster.

So far, Aston Martin has not mentioned anything about the convertible, when it comes to its release date. However, it took the automaker quite some time (around a year and a half) to follow the new DB11 coupe with the DB11 Volante convertible. So if there will be an actual roadster comes to the market in the near future, we are guessing that it will not be the only variant of the new Vantage, and that there will be others to follow.

2018 Aston Martin Vantage Shooting Brake would be a worthy rival to the Ferrari GTC4Lusso

A couple of days ago, we saw the very first rendering of the Aston Martin Roadster just a few days after the automaker unveiled the newest Vantage. And we find it so amazing how these artists work on their imaginations so quickly. As mentioned earlier, the Shooting Brake is one of those possible family members.

It was Nikita Aksyonov who was the person behind the beautiful rendering of the 2018 Aston Martin Vantage as a more practical Shooting Brake, and we think that it is a genius idea.

Wouldn’t this baby Aston Martin be a better choice or at least be an alternative to the larger Ferrari GTC4Lusso, as it will more likely be cheaper as well. Overall, it will likely have 100 horsepower more when at its “T” flavor, while the range topping trim with the V12 engine will have as much as 680 horsepower.

2018 Aston Martin Vantage revealed, delivers 503 horsepower

If you see the Aston Martin’s 2018 Vantage, you would think that it is significantly different from most of Aston’s GT lineup. For instance, if the DB11 is a fine gentleman, the Vantage is the hunter - that is how Miles Nurnberger, chief exterior designer describes it. Furthermore, it takes some of its design elements from James Bond’s DB10 in Spectre, wherein the automaker only built 10 cars for the movie.

Though it continues to have the Vantage’s basic proportions of a front-engine coupe with a low-arching roofline, it still looks a bit more aggressive than its predecessor. This could be because of the sloped shark nose and the more open front grille.

Moving onto the vehicle’s rear end, you would notice that it has been made with aerodynamic elements that had been seamlessly put into the structural design of the Vantage. It also has a complex rear diffuser that controls turbulence off the tires. This creates significant downforce with the help of the front splitter and the side gill panels.

Aston Martin Racing reveals next-generation Vantage GTE race car

Aston Martin has just unveiled the next generation of its Vantage sports car. Incredibly, it didn’t take long for the carmaker’s official motorsports arm Aston Martin Racing to introduce the racing GTE version of the sports car – the new 2018 Aston Martin Vantage GTE.

The British carmaker unveiled the next-gen Aston Martin Vantage in the morning of November 21, 2017. That night, in a well-synchronized launch, Aston Martin Racing took the wraps off the GTE racing derivative. This was well-expected as after all, the Vantage GTE was developed in parallel with the Vantage road. AMR – working from its base in Banbury -- closely collaborated with Aston Martin’s Gaydon headquarters for the parallel development of the road-going and circuit-bound models.

Simply put, the Vantage GTE is like a Vantage in steroids. AMR took the core design and dynamic capabilities of the next-gen Vantage to an entirely new level by extensively optimizing its powertrain and chassis as well as aerodynamics. The result is the new Aston Martin Vantage GTE, as designed and engineered to compete in the FIA World Endurance Championship.

Aston Martin is disclosing initial details about the new track-inspired Aston Martin Vantage GT3 special edition. Tagged by the carmaker as its most potent and uncompromising Vantage so far, the Vantage GT3 builds on the expertise and experience that Aston Martin received from years of sports car competition around the world. The carmaker’s most performance-focused road-going Vantage to date will be available in very limited numbers, at just 100 examples.

Weighing 100 kg lighter than a than a standard V12 Vantage S, the new Vantage GT3 is powered by a new version of Aston Martin’s 6.0-liter V12 engine that could deliver up to 600 PS of output.

After thorough reengineering and restyling, the Vantage GT3 looks and feels differently from its siblings in the Vantage family. For instance, it is lower and wider than other Vantage models. Likewise, its front and rear are now wider, which reduces lateral load transfer for a more confident cornering work. The new Vantage GT3 sticks to the ground through Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires.
