2023 Aston Martin Vantage
The Aston Martin was chosen to be James Bond’s car for a reason. Besides being a British classic, it oozes style, power, character and luxury. The 2023 Aston Martin Vantage doesn’t hold back in any of those areas, meaning a thrilling driving experience awaits anyone who gets behind the wheel.
Models and Pricing
Whichever Vantage you choose will deliver a badge that connects to iconic heritage and equally exquisite appearance and handling. There are a few distinctions that set apart each of the models. Prices start at around $170,000.
Only the V8 Coupe comes with the option for manual transmission. It also sits at the lower end of the price scale. For slightly more, you can choose to let the top down on the V8 convertible, also referred to as the V8 Roadster. They both come with a 4.0 litre twin-turbo V8 engine, 503 horsepower and go from 0 to 100 km per hour in under four seconds.
The F1 edition has much more of a race car feel, as you’d expect. With improved aerodynamics, 527 horsepower and the ability to go from 0 to 100 km per hour in 3.6 seconds, it’s sure to impress. Its top speed is around 313 km/h compared to the Roadster, which maxes out at around 305.
The V12 Vantage gets its name from the V12 engine, which delivers top speeds over 320 km/h and 700 horsepower. There’s also a V12 Roadster for a convertible option. Both models are incredibly exclusive, though, with a limited production run.
Tech, Comfort and Style
Automatic dual-zone temperature control means you’ll be riding in comfort. To take that to the next level, you can include add-ons such as heating and cooling for the driver and passenger seats. Other smart features include a 360 camera, cruise control, keyless entry and blind spot detection.
For entertainment, you can get an 8-inch LCD screen, A2DP Bluetooth audio and phone streaming and the Aston Martin audio system. There are opportunities to upgrade the interior to your taste with a semi-aniline leather palette, optional trim inlays and a contrast stitch. You can also choose the look of the inside based on themes, such as Inspire, Accelerate and Create. It’s the exterior that truly leaves everyone impressed, though. Each model has the signature clamshell bonnet, a two-door body and LED front and tail lights.
In A Class Of Its Own
When it comes to appearance, power and driving experience, the 2023 Aston Martin Vantage is in its own league. From the exterior and interior aesthetic to the explosive acceleration, it’s a luxury car that will turn heads and have you eager to take it for a spin. —--------
