  • The 2025 Aston Martin Vantage packs a 4.0-liter turbocharged V8 that sends 656 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque through an eight-speed transmission.
  • Aston Martin says this Vantage can sprint to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds and runs out of oomph at 202 mph.
  • The 2025 Aston Martin Vantage heads to production by the end of March, with deliveries expected by June.

If your 2020 Aston Martin Vantage is starting to look a little dated (it isn’t), Aston is ready to offer a replacement. The 111-year-old British performance brand is soon to launch the ’25 Vantage with more power from its 4.0-liter turbocharged V8, fresh styling, and an all-new interior.

This more potent Vantage is scheduled to hit the assembly line in the coming weeks, with models hitting the street by the end of June.

While Aston Martin says the ’25 Vantage will exclusively sport the V8, there is some good news for that turbocharged eight-pot. The 4.0-liter V8 now sends 656 hp and 590 lb-ft of torque through a ZF eight-speed automatic. Power then travels through an electronic rear limited slip before hitting the rear wheels.

Aston squeezes more power out of this V8 by way of some tuning changes, revised camshaft profiles, and bigger turbochargers. A larger, water-to-air charge cooler helps chill the intake charge, resulting in more power.

According to Aston Martin, this new engine package is good enough to rocket the Vantage to 60 mph in only 3.4 seconds. However, Aston Martin also says this only can hit 202 mph. Helping your standing start endeavors, the ’25 Vantage sports a new launch-control system.

This new system naturally works with the engine, transmission, and ESC system to best manage wheel slip while putting the power down. If you want to meddle with this magic, you can adjust the amount of wheel slip through the adjustable traction control system.

Responsible for covering that improved V8, and the rest of the Vantage, is an updated shell. Aston says the ’25 Vantage is 1.18 inches wider than the current model. Almost more importantly than its width, Aston says the front end sports a 38% larger grille aperture, improving airflow by 29%.

Better cooling helps keep that updated powertrain happy. The ’25 Vantage is 30 mm (1.18 inches) longer than the current Vantage. The wheelbase, too, is longer, but you’ll need a well-calibrated eye to notice the 1-mm difference.

Supporting all of this is the revised underside. Aston Marton moved the front cross member rearward to help with chassis stiffness. Double wishbone suspension at the front controls the movement of the 21-inch alloy wheels.

A multi-link suspension controls the movement of the rear wheels. Aston also improved the Vantage’s rigidity by increasing the lateral stiffness between the rear suspension towers. This works with revised dampers to give the driver better control over the car as a whole.

For ’25, the Aston Martin Vantage is getting a major interior overhaul.

Steering at the front is handled by a 12.8:1 ratio steering rack that features variable, speed-sensitive assistance. Adjusting the steering feel is as easy as changing the Vantage’s drive modes.

Wrapping those 21-inch wheels is a set of 275/35 at the front and 325/20 at the rear “AML” coded Michelin Pilot Sport S 5 tires. Aston says these tires are specially formulated to give the new Vantage a high level of grip and response.

Joining the chassis upgrades are some dampening upgrades. Bilstein DTX adaptive dampers apparently feature five times more bandwidth in force distribution over the outgoing model. That means the new Vantage should better manage what the road is throwing its way.

This Aston also features a six-axis accelerometer and sensors at the powertrain, braking system, and differential to give the system controllers as much data as possible.

While all of this is nice, customers wouldn’t be too pleased if the interior wasn’t up to snuff. For ’25, the Vantage is getting a major interior overhaul. The ’25 Vantage is the second Aston Martin to adopt the company’s new infotainment system and follows the latest DB12.

That means this machine features a 10.25-inch touchscreen media display that sits where the center console meets the lower part of the dashboard. A similarly sized digital instrument cluster sits ahead of the driver.

The Vantage offers a standard 11-speaker audio system that packs 390 watts of power. If that’s not enough, you can opt for the 1170-watt surround-sound system from Bowers & Wilkins. Leather wraps just about anything you’d touch, including the multi-function steering wheel.

Pricing is still to be determined, but as the saying goes: If you have to ask, you can’t afford it. Or, you might just be a frugal Aston Martin enthusiast. For those that care about the Vantage’s new price, it’s likely coming close to its second quarter launch.

That said, the ’23 model would set you back $146,986 before any options. You can almost expect a price bump to maybe the $160,000 range, but we’ll know for sure how much the price will change later this year.
