On the heels of the powerful, range-topping V12 Aston Martin Vantage S comes the 2015 Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT, with a lower base price that starts just over $100,000. Also new this year is the V12 Vantage S Roadster, with a starting price near $200,000.
The biggest news for the 2014 Aston Martin Vantage is the new V12 Vantage S model. With a more powerful V12 engine, this is the fastest Aston you can buy. The 7-speed single-clutch automatic transmission gets revisions, and new 3-stage adjustable shocks help drivers fine-tune handling between three different modes.
About Aston Martin Vantage
The 2015 Aston Martin Vantage coupe and convertible represent the entry model in the British brand's stable of supercars. Like its bigger grand-touring siblings, the 2-seat Vantage has jaw-dropping design and the cachet inherent with the brand most associated with Bond, James Bond. The Vantage, however, is more performance-oriented and has a lower starting price that just got lower. With the new Vantage GT, this exotic can now be had for under $103,000, about $17,000 less than the previous base model. That money buys a lot of performance and serious badge appeal, but in light of newer and more advanced rivals such as the Jaguar F-Type, Porsche 911 and Audi R8, the Vantage's sparkle has started to dim.
