Aston Martin will reveal its overhauled Vantage on February 12, 2024, and has teased the updated sports car in a pair of videos on its X (formerly Twitter) account.

    One video shows a seat in the middle of a road with a voiceover by F1 driver Fernando Alonso. The video is captioned “Engineered by real drivers. 12.02.2024 Sit down, listen up”.

    It’s hard to tell what clues Aston Martin is trying to give away but the seat could be a lightweight one used for a performance variant.

    The second video raises more questions than answers. The video shows a Vantage that shares the same headlight design as the current model, however the rear fascia appears to be redesigned.

    Previous spy photos showed us a new headlight design for the Vantage which could mean the video is a combination of the old and the new.

    The tail lights continue to wrap around the sides of the vehicle, but have a new design.

    The video also gives us a slight glimpse at the interior, with some green stitching on a perforated leather seat.

    The Vantage may also get a new infotainment system as the DB11-replacing DB12 has done, which supports next-generation Apple CarPlay that can extend across multiple screens.

    It’s unclear if the updated Vantage will feature any changes to its powertrain.

    Currently it’s powered by a twin-turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 engine sourced from Mercedes-AMG, which produces 375kW of power and 685Nm of torque.

    There have also been more powerful F1 Edition and V12 variants, the latter using Aston Martin’s twin-turbo 5.2-litre V12. The V12 won’t continue with the updated model.

    In November 2023, chief creative officer Marek Reichman told Autocar the new Vantage will be styled like a “complete hooligan” and will lean heavily on the company’s Formula 1 expertise.

     “We’ll see in our sports car and GT range much more breadth and separation between one end and the other, where today they’re quite similarly positioned. We’ll see a much broader operating range,” product and marketing strategy director Alex Long told Autocar.
