Aston Martin's Newest V8 Vantage Is Available Only For Americans

Supercar

Sorry, Brits.

Here’s the bad news: We’re losing two Aston Martin V8 Vantages. The GT and S will no longer be sold in America. Now for the good news: Both of those trims are being folded into the America-only Vantage GTS. The new Vantage will pack a naturally aspirated 4.7-liter V8 good for 430 horsepower and 361 lb-ft of torque. It will come in two styles, coupe and convertible. There are two transmissions on offer, a seven-speed single-clutch auto and a six-speed manual. With the absence of a DCT the manual seems like the only way to go.

There will be two trims to choose from. “Sport” gives you a sport suspension, which was previously optional, as well as some lightweight bits and bobs (that center console is carbon fiber) in the cabin. There’s black or gray leather with Alcantara or leather detailing offered. The Lux version ditches the sport suspension but does give you a sleeker exterior. There’s a gloss black splitter and rear diffuser, hood vent strakes and trim for the headlights and windows. Autoblog expects pricing to come in near the price tag for the current top-line S model, which sits at $134,000.
