The design language

Decades after Henrik Fisker crafted the design of the debut generation of the Vantage lineup; the car still turns heads wherever it is driven to. The good looks of the 2017 Aston Martin V8 Vantage can be attributed to years of refinement, adjustment and revision. Unlike the previous iterations, the 2017 Vantage can now see eye to eye with rivals flagships from Mercedes, Chevrolet, Audi and Jaguar.

Although the 4.7litre V8 is not exactly a novel feature in the auto world arena, it still commands respect bearing in mind that it is far from being the worst. In fact, it the smooth glide of the V8 Vantage is owed to the near perfect semi-automatic system that the 2017 Aston Martin V8 packs.

The interior controls are solid, however, this time around Aston Martin decided to cap off the entire control of the car from one portal to reduce the chances for remote hacking- an issue that has raised concerns in the past over the safety of fully automated supercars.
