2011 Aston Martin Vantage Roadster
Aston Martin is preparing the facelift of its smallest model, the V8 Vantage, and we now have some spy photos showing the new model during testing - thankfully, the car wore very little disguise.
The car photographed is the roadster version and the photos reveal we're not dealing with a major facelift. The Aston Martin Vantage facelift will feature small changes like a slightly redesigned front bumper with new lower splitter, new 10-spoke 19-inch wheels and a rear diffuser that resembles the one from the Vantage V12.
British engineers also added a higher, Porsche-like rear spoiler, incorporated in the boot lid, for better aerodynamic performance. Interior changes include the introduction of a 1000-watts Bang&Olufsen hi-fi system and a set of lightweight Kevlar and carbon seats. As far as the engines go, there’s not much to say excepting the fact that they should remain largely the same for the facelift. The car will be premiered this year and the sales will start in 2011.
