Supercar tweaked for more aggressive look
1 April 2010

These are the first pictures of the facelifted Aston Martin Vantage, which will go on sale later this year.

Styling tweaks take inspiration from the V12 engined model, and are designed to give the car a more aggressive look and improve aerodynamic peformance.

These include a redesigned front bumper with new lower splitter, a new rear diffuser and a higher rear spoiler.

The car is also expected to be slightly lighter than the current model.

The 19-inch wheels, lightweight carbonfibre and kevlar seats and 1000-watt Bang & Olufsen stereo system, recently introduced on the current car, are expected to be offered as standard.

Just because they can. Why would anyone need a system so powerful in a car?

If I want an autonomous car, I'll take a taxi.

Is it an Avensis with a new grille and zebra stripe paint job?

So you can pump up your music so loud that everyone notices you and your fancy super car in traffic and we all love the attention when we drive out Aston

The problem with copying the evolutionary Porsche method to updating models is that you cannot really see the changes and every model ends up looking the same.

Ferraris are iconic, but the range differs from each other and every generation adops new and modern styling. Proof that you can be bold and if anything they now sell more cars than ever.

What! a facelift!, where's the announcement of a hybrid?, all there other compeditors have one coming to market soon, typical Aston Martin, the snobbish we'll do one when we feel like it and it'll be better than everyone elses, more like they can afford to do one!

Do you think that maybe one day soon Marek Reichman could create a car of his own design rather than bastardising someone else's?

That was a joke based post, however if I did drive an Aston or any supercar in fact I would turn up my music up a notch higher and enjoy the fancy stereo that I paid for

All slightly sad really. My local dealer keeps ringing and e-mailing to ask if I'd like a go in one, and to discuss "purchasing options"... As was said earlier, it's the Porsche evolutionary approach, without this high tech...
