Under the Hood
Powering the 2025 Aston Martin Vantage is a hand-built 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine, putting out 656 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque. The engine is sourced from Mercedes-AMG but heavily reworked by Aston Martin engineers with larger turbos, optimized compression ratios, and increased cooling for a higher output and improved response. The updated engine represents a considerable increase in output compared to the outgoing version—30 percent more horsepower and 15 percent more torque. A rear-mounted 8-speed automatic transmission manages the power, sending it to the rear wheels.
