Vantage will undoubtedly go down in history as a name synonymous with excellence, performance and prestige.
Now, in 2020, Aston Martin is celebrating 70 years of producing this astounding vehicle.
A special anniversary for a very special vehicle
“As we celebrate 70 years of Vantage in 2020, it allows us to delight in our superb sports car heritage,” commented Dr Andy Palmer, Aston Martin Lagonda president and group CEO.
“Vantage has always stood for engineering ambition, thrilling performance and exceptional beauty, and I’m pleased that today’s models more than live up to the standards set by their iconic forebears.”
The marque has created more than 36,000 vehicles with the Vantage moniker since its inception in 1950 – each of which was meticulously handcrafted.
It’s seen iconic versions including the DB4, DB5 and DB6, as well as supercharged versions like the DB7 V12 Vantage, V8 Vantage and V8 Vantage Zagato.
Today’s cutting-edge Vantage two-seater sports car features a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 engine and offers impressive performance, being capable of accelerating from 0-60 mph in just 3.5 seconds and topping out at 195 mph.
Amy King, SEO and Social Manager at Drivers Club News, comments: “The outstanding Aston Martin vehicle is undoubtedly one of the most prestigious names in the automotive world, so a celebration of 70 years of this special vehicle is something to truly relish.”
