Aston Martin Offers Factory Grille Conversion for Vantage

Aston Martin Works, the company’s U.K.-based heritage service and restoration facility, announced on Wednesday a new grille conversion program for the current Vantage, allowing owners to swap out their old “Hunter” style grille for the newer slotted “Vane” grille sold on 2021 models (shown above). This means owners who bought Vantages before it was available can now have it installed if they prefer it over the gigantic, gaping Hunter grille that polarized many critics.

The news comes just a few months after Aston began to offer the Vane grille on new Vantages back in October. The new design was introduced following “feedback from customers in some markets” saying “they preferred a softer, more refined, or more traditional front-end choice that closer resembled what one might find on the DB11, in comparison to the standard, more aggressive, muscular Vantage design,” according to Aston Martin.

Sending your car back to Aston to have the Vane grille installed isn’t the only way you can get rid of that controversial grille. An aftermarket company called Revenant Automotive offers another solution with a more subtle design:

An Aston Martin representative told Road & Track via email the conversion process, which includs a new bumper cover and splitter, can be completed at any Aston dealership, so even U.S. customers unsatisfied with their current grilles can get theirs swapped out. The company declined to outline pricing, telling us because the new equipment has to be paint-matched to the rest of the car, labor and paint cost can vary depending on location.
