The V8 Vantage is an entry-level model for British automaker Aston Martin. The stunning bodywork wraps around a high tech aluminum, magnesium and steel structure. A power operated soft convertible retracts in about 18 seconds to allow open air motoring. Power comes from a 4.3L V8 producing 380-bhp and 302 lb-ft of torque. A rear-mounted six-speed manual transmission is the only offered transmission. The two-seat interior is finished in leather and aluminum, but in true Aston Martin fashion, a multitude of customization options exists.
The new V8 Vantage convertible is a soft-top variant of the V8 Vantage coupe. The power operated convertible top retracts in 18 seconds. A reinforced chassis counteracts the loss of the roof structure. The convertible is otherwise the same as the coupe.
