Aston Martin Kuala Lumpur ushers in a new era of pure, driver-focused performance with the official launch of the new Aston Martin Vantage in Malaysia.

The latest iteration of the quintessential Aston Martin sports car is the fastest Vantage to ever roll out of Gaydon in its 74-year history. The new Vantage blends power with razor-sharp handling and the perfect balance of a finely-tuned front-engine, rear-wheel drive chassis.

The remarkable lineage of the Aston Martin Vantage can be traced back to 1950, when the
Vantage name was first used to denote an uprated engine package for the race-proven DB2.

The first time Vantage was applied as a model designation was in 1964, when a high-performance Vantage-badged version of the DB5 became the new flagship of the range. A standalone Vantage model was introduced in the early 1970s, from which point the nameplate has played an increasingly prominent role in Aston Martin’s model line-up.

The Malaysian debut of the new Vantage comes during one of the most dynamic periods in the 111-year history of Aston Martin. Aston Martin is established in the motorsports arena as a formidable force in the 2023 Formula One® season, a dominant presence in international GT racing, where Vantage has a rich history as the most successful endurance GT racer, and a front-line challenger in the World Endurance Championship, with the Valkyrie AMR aiming for Le Mans 24 Hours glory in 2025.

“From Silverstone to Sepang, the Aston Martin Vantage has developed a reputation as one of the most iconic nameplates in sports car history. The new Vantage epitomises the most dynamic period in Aston Martin’s 111-year history, deriving track-proven racing DNA from the brand’s exploits on the most competitive motorsports grids in the world.

Bolstered by state-of-the-art technology and sophistication, the unique Vantage formula befits first-time Aston Martin owners and long-time brand enthusiasts alike. We are extremely thrilled to give it a home here in Aston Martin Kuala Lumpur,” said Chris Chia Kok How, General Manager of Aston Martin Kuala Lumpur.

Powered by a heavily reworked, hand-built 4.0-litre Twin-Turbo V8 engine, the new Vantage hits new performance heights with peaks of 665PS and a colossal 800Nm of torque. Extensive tuning by Aston Martin engineers, the adoption of modified cam profiles, optimised compression ratios, larger turbos, and increased cooling have produced the most substantial improvements in power and torque for a new Vantage in comparison to its successor, with the increases of 155PS and 115Nm equating to gains of 30% and 15% respectively.

Mated to an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission, the V8 engine propels the new Vantage to
100km/h from a standstill in just 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 325km/h. Standing start
acceleration has been perfected with the introduction of a new Launch Control system.

The new Aston Martin Vantage is built around Aston Martin’s latest generation bonded aluminium construction. Its highly evolved aluminium body structure delivers more focused and engaging dynamics thanks to additional underbody stiffening components for increased overall torsional rigidity.

Aston Martin engineers have given obsessive attention to the Vantage’s Electronic Power Assisted Steering system (EPAS). The fitment of a non-isolated steering column means steering inputs from the driver are quick and direct, while the flow of information from the road is granular in detail and pleasingly tactile.

Steering response and front-end grip has been further enhanced by ‘AML’ coded Michelin Pilot Sport S 5 tyres made specifically for the Vantage.

Measuring 275/35 R21 (103Y) front and 325/30 R21 (108Y) rear, they feature a bespoke compound and have been tuned by the Aston Martin dynamics team to suit the super-sharp response, high grip levels and progressive breakaway characteristics expected from the most driver-focused model in the Aston Martin range.

The new Aston Martin Vantage is now available for booking in Malaysia, with a starting price of RM2,370,000 excluding options and customisation. The retail price includes a three-year factory warranty, which customers can opt to extend to enjoy up to 20 years of coverage.

This complements the Aston Martin ownership experience with vehicle lifetime protection for total peace of mind, subject to terms and conditions.
