Aston Martin Works Introduces Alternative Grilles For The Vantage

For a small price, compared to the purchase price, Aston Martin will replace the standard front fascia for a subtler one


  • The original grille proved to be controversial and not all that appreciated.

  • The current Vantage was introduced in 2018.


We’ll have to be frank here: We found nothing wrong with the Aston Martin Vantage we drove and reviewed early last fall. Apparently, the Vantage’s front grille and fascia proved to be a hard sell for a number of customers. This prompted Aston Martin’s own Works department to offer a revised unit.

2020 Aston Martin Vantage Coupe: The Vantage Is Out To Prove Itself

Aston Martin Works is AM’s internal arm that produces special builds such as the super-cool £3.3 million DB5 Goldfinger. This means that the “optional” grille is in fact a factory upgrade. The revised grilles cost is £2,999 including VAT, painting, and fitment. Lead time for the work, according to PistonHeads is of three to four weeks.

There are in fact four variations to grilles that can be selected, each including the front bumper that needs to be replaced in the process. As it is an inside job, cooling and aerodynamics are not affected, nor is the car’s original factory warranty.

If you happen to own an example of the current-generation Vantage, Aston Martin can fit the new front end on your gently-used supercar.
