Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
For the 2012 model year, the base Aston Martin V8 Vantage gets the automated manual transmission, steering gear, larger brakes and wider tires that were previously only found on the higher-trim Vantage S. Other changes are limited to a revised navigation system that's easier to use.
Offering the most affordable gateway into the Aston Martin brand, the 2013 Vantage packs a visual and performance punch worthy of its prestigious badging. More than just a pretty face, the 2-seat Vantage coupe and roadster back up their aggressively sculpted sheet metal with supercar-like handling characteristics and the choice of a potent V8 or ferocious 510-horsepower V12. The Vantage also features the same lightweight yet structurally ridged aluminum body structure that underpins every modern Aston Martin. Segment juggernauts like the Audi R8, Mercedes-Benz SL63, and upmarket varieties of the Porsche 911 deliver more acceleration for your buck, but when it comes to outright emotional involvement and brand cache, the 2013 Aston Martin Vantage stands alone.
