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 4.7L V8 producing 420-bhp. A rear-mounted six-speed manual transmission can be upgraded to an automated sequential manual. The two-seat interior is finished in leather and aluminum, but in true Aston Martin fashion, a multitude of customization options exists.

What Changed:

Aston Martin's small coupe/roadster have been updated with a larger 4.7l V8 engine rated at 420-bhp. Nineteen inch wheels and tires are now standard. The center console has also been updated.
