With such a beautiful design, one could be forgiven for thinking the new Vantage is all show and no go, but that assumption would be wrong. The Aston Martin Vantage is powered by a brand-new 4.0L V8 engine fed by twin turbochargers. This combination is enough to make 503 horsepower which is sent to the rear wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission. Aston expects to release a manual version in the next year or two, but for now, the 8-speed is ultra-responsive and can be shifted via paddles behind the steering wheel. With this combination, Aston Martin claims a 0-60 time of just 3.5 seconds for the new Vantage, making it a truly supercar fast. Like many high-end manufacturers, Aston Martin doesn't offer separate trim models for the Vantage, instead allowing prospective buyers to customize their car in a huge variety of ways. Even in its most vanilla form, the Vantage comes with a beautiful interior featuring acres of Strathmore leather and Alcantara, a black leather steering wheel, dual-zone climate control, keyless start/stop, memory seats and an 8-inch LCD screen to house the navigation system. Optional interior features include more aggressive sport seats, Caithness or Balmoral leather trimming, an embroidered headrest, ventilated seats, a park assist system, a premium audio system, a first aid kit and even an umbrella holder. Outside, the Vantage comes on standard 20-inch wheels front and back, shod in sticky Pirelli P Zero tires. Optionally, buyers can add an exterior graphics pack, a rear diffuser in a variety of finishes, a choice of several grille colors, carbon fiber door handles, a variety of color options for the huge brake calipers, matte black exhaust tips and a carbon fiber engine cover among other things. Several option packages are available, including a tech package that adds an interior touchpad, switches made of glass for the interior, the park assist system and a blind spot monitoring system. A comfort package adds heated seats that adjust in 16 different ways.
