Perhaps you still remember that the first generation of Aston Martin Vantage was discontinued and more than a decade, they go with the redesigned second model for 2017. In June 2016 all information about the details are their top secret but mules have been spotted on public roads at Nurburgring in the end of 2014. It came out in 2016 for its mule test camouflaged as a DB11 prototype, as it was reported by spy photographers. Now, the new 2018 Aston Martin Vantage was caught for a new testing session. The company worked hard to cover it with DB11 clothes but its recognizable design makes it totally obvious.

At the first time, you see the prototype, you might think that the design is similar to the initial DB11 prototype, but basically, it has a shorter wheelbase than DB11 and it goes with the 2-seat layout, while DB11 had 2+2. 2018 Aston Martin Vantage probably comes out with a new aluminum platform from DB11 but it has longer, shorter and wider design. It is expected to be launched with sportier and more muscular stance. It doesn’t matter if the company will add some styling cues from DB11 as long as it goes with its unique look.

About the cabin layout, most likely it will borrow DB11. We hope that they will go with classic Aston Martin grand tourer layout where we can see clean dashboard and tall center console, but it is also important to come with some significant upgrades. The main highlight will be the racy cabin design as well as the all-digital instrument cluster. The flat-bottom steering is equipped with thinner spokes. In addition, 2018 Aston Martin Vantage will be featured with 12-inch of TFT display, rotary control, and touchpad at the center stack. It seems that the company will add new infotainment system, new satellite navigation, and audio system. It would be great if they also provide auto-park assist and 360-degree camera. For those who anticipate this car, you will get some advantages such as higher comfort level of the seats because the quality materials will be improved with high-grade leather, Alcantara and aluminum trim for the standard. The optional is carbon fiber. It has luxury touch with the contrast stitching and piping around the seats, center console as well as door panels. Thanks to its longer wheelbase that makes the legroom is improved with roomier luggage compartment.

More big reports are available for the engine of this prototype. It seems that they will use turbocharged powerplant because the front grille is completed with a pair of intercoolers which can be the strong indication that they will use forced induction for its engine system. It is also okay to assume that the mule is worked by AMG-sourced turbo V8 engine and 4.0 liter that is used by Mercedes-AMG GT sports car and Mercedes AMG C63 compact. This engine will be used for the base model of 2018 Aston Martin Vantage to produce 500 hp. There is also twin-turbo 5.2 liter and V12 engine from DB11 for the higher model to produce 600 hp. The transmission can be a six-speed manual for standard and eight-speed auto gearbox for optional.
