The V8 Vantage is an entry-level model for Aston Martin. The 2-door hatchback features stunning bodywork wrapped around a high tech aluminum, magnesium and steel structure. About a foot shorter than the DB9, Vantage is roughly the same size as the new Corvette and 911. 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.
