New Revenant Automotive bumper 'fixes' the Aston Martin Vantage
Is grille design really that hard? While BMW has taken the brunt of the criticism lately for the front end of the redesigned 2021 BMW 4 Series, it was't too long ago that Aston Martin was being ridiculed for the looks of the Vantage. As it looks today, the Vantage has a bit of the whale shark about it, with a gaping front end that draws your eye into it rather than around the car to see the sleek sheetmetal and sweeping design lines.
Revenant Automotive has designed, developed, and engineered a new front bumper for the model. It incorporates two openings instead of one, leaving the car looking less like a guppy. The new nosecone features a top opening that is more proportional to the design of the Vantage whole a lower opening is serviceable but not remarkable. High-flow hexagonal mesh protects the lower inlet. The two sections are divided by a splitter with curved supports.
Buyers can choose from a variety of materials for their car from a selection of lightweight composites, including exposed 2x2 twill herringbone autoclave-cured carbon fiber.
The nosecone is just the first piece of the Vantage puzzle Revenant Automotive will be recommissioning and selling.
Before owners commit, they can try out the varieties in the Revenant Automotive online configurator tool. The configurator features the ability to choose a wide variety of visual combinations, allowing users to color and customize not just the paintwork of their Vantage, but also trim pieces such as grilles, badging, and window surrounds, as well as using accent colors on graphics, brake calipers, and wheels. Numerous camera angles are available to review each creation, along with insider information on the design and personalization options.
Each new section is handcrafted in the U.K., like the Vantage. Current and future Aston Martin Vantage owners are able to discuss their requirements with Revenant Automotive with regards to material selection, ordering and best methods for fitting, as well as configuring their new-look Aston Martin Vantage online.
