This Aston Martin is a 503-hp track animal. So is its speed. That AMG engine is the same 503-hp, twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 found under the hoods of the Mercedes-AMG C63 S range and the GLC63 S coupe SUV. Tuned here for 505 lb-ft of torque at 2000 rpm and lashed to a quick-shifting eight-speed ZF transaxle, it catapults the Vantage to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds and launches it out of corners with stomach-tightening abandon—and an exhaust note that sounds like rapid-fire thunderclaps. According to its maker, the Vantage won’t stop partying until it hits 195 mph.
If a supercar’s sole purpose were to make passersby dream and drool, the Vantage would instantly be rated as one of the best. From behind the wheel it is excitement personified.
