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.
