The V8 Vantage is an entry-level model for Aston Martin. The 2-door hatchback features stunning body work 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 is provided by an all-new 4.3L V8 producing 380hp 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 are offered.

What Changed:

All-new small coupe model based on a shorter version of the VH platform used in the DB9. Power is supplied by an all-new 4.3L V8 that produces 380hp. A six-speed manual transmission is the only offered transmission at launch.
