The Aston Martin Vantage, your first stepping stone in owning a sports car from the Gaydon-based luxury brand. First launched in the country back in 2018, it sits below the DB11 flagship grand tourer but offers performance, style, and sophistication.
But if there was one thing that some people find “unique” with the Vantage, it has to be its front grille. Whether you love it or loathe it, the wide and low-slung front grille gave the Vantage its signature look. As automakers continue to make bigger and bigger front grills for their cars, one shop based in the UK designed a new nosecone for the Vantage that reverts back to a smaller, more elegant front fascia.
Designed by Revenant Automotive, the new bumper design divides the intake area into two openings – replacing the original one-piece design. The upper inlet was made to look cleaner while the lower inlet (which is protected by a high-flow hexagonal mesh) connects with the front splitter with a pair of curved supports for a more stylish finish.
Each new nosecone is handcrafted in the UK and is available in a variety of lightweight composites – including carbon fiber. Clients that wish to customize the nosecone can discuss the requirements with Revenant Automotive. From material selection, methods of installation, as well as configuring the new look of the Vantage online, Revenant Automotive can customize each client's preferred design.
There is also an online configurator that features countless possible visual combinations for each Vantage. This will allow users to choose the paint finish, the color of the grille trim pieces, as well as the emblems and window surrounds of their Vantage.
With the new look, the Vantage's front fascia now somewhat resembles the signature look of the DB9, the Vanquish, as well as the DBS from the James Bond flick 'Quantum of Solace'.
