Now here is a manufacturer who has endured and indeed thrived during this global economic downturn. Aston Martin have a near faultless range, we will forget about the Cygnet for now, bringing forth style and elegance in a truly British performance package. Aston have previewed the 2012 V8 Vantage.
This is quite an important update for the V8 Vantage as it represents the biggest in changes since the cars launch. Being Aston Martins largest seller means that it has to impress, and going by past experiences they have nothing to worry about. Starting at £84,995 the standard V8 Vantage gets a revised 420BHP motor and much more aggressive styling that includes a rear diffuser and lower front splitter. The breaks have also been improved as well as a 7 speed gearbox being made an option. With a new Vantage comes a newer Vantage S with a price tag of £99,995. For that the V8 will muster 430BHP driven to the rear wheels via the previously mentioned 7 speed box. Both variants are avalible as both coupe and convertible models.
