Feeling flash, James?

While Bond 25 is still without a director, confirmed title or leading lady, 007's next ride might have just been unveiled and it looks...

Very fast.

Introducing the new, improved and very luminous 2019 Vantage, Aston Martin's latest addition to one of its most popular and powerful models, the next generation features a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine that will take it from 0 to 60mph in 3.5 seconds and on to a maximum speed of 195mph. Which should give it just enough speed to drag race through the markets of Istanbul, or whatever else Bond has lined up for his next outing.

Along with its ridiculously powerful engine, the new Vantage features 50:50 weight distribution (good for handling), bonded aluminium panels, a "three-stage adaptive-damper system," an overall larger build and rear LED lights connected with a single "central light bar."

Nice.

Available to order now for a starting price of just P8,118,835.37, the 2019 Vantage will begin shipping during the second half of 2018.

But is it good for shunting Fiat 500's?
