The Aston Martin V8 Vantage is a small car with a big personality, so what you get is a satisfying roar when it bursts into life, firm suspension, and looks that are definitively Aston Martin. From a marque which has made a name for itself as a designer and purveyor of luxury sports cars and saloons, and the V8 Vantage fits effortlessly into the incredible new range. The new Aston Martin V8 Vantage can be discovered in more detail at Jardine Aston Martin dealerships in Cambridgeshire and Kent.
The Vantage V8 features multiple airbags and electronic stability control as standard, ensuring that the car handles well in any situation, yet keeps you safe if there is a collision.
And, because this is a highly desirable vehicle, Aston Martin has added the option of an electronic tracking system, so the car can be traced if necessary.
Of all the Aston Martins in the range, the V8 Vantage is perhaps the most physically imposing, with a low profile that permeates the smooth lines, curves and overall elegance of the model.Its looks reflect the power on offer, and with an attractive range of paint colours, there's no denying the V8 Vantage's dynamism. Inside, the emphasis is on style and comfort. The leather seats sit low, so you feel like you're really in control when navigating corners at speed.
Climate control, a six-CD changer, and adjustable electric seats all come as standard.
The V8 Vantage is available with a 4.7-litre or 6.0-litre engine, both of which deliver impressive performance, with the former offering 420bhp and a top speed of 190mph, and the latter delivering 510bhp and a 0-60mph time of 4.2 seconds.
Built predominantly using carbon fibre panels, the V8 Vantage is surprisingly lightweight, making it agile and energetic – perfect for the driver who genuinely loves well-tuned, luxury cars.
