Aston Martin V8 Vantage

Aston Martin V8 Vantage

In wake of the heightened competition in the sports cars segment, the iconic British brand, Aston Martin unleashed an aesthetically enhanced, exquisitely crafted and high-performing coupe - the V8 Vantage. Though historically, that name stood for the high-performing variants of its GT models, today, V8 Vantage is among the leanest, meanest and most agile member of Aston Martin's fleet. The 2-door, 2-seater hatchback coupe is also available as a convertible roadster and has been placed in the 'entry-level' category with a price tag of $117,000. With that, the car unveiled at the 2003 North American International Auto Show seems pretty serious in its focus to give a run for the money to competitors like Porsche 911 and other GT cars.

The interiors of the 2-seater vantage is as plush as any other Aston Martin with trims made of high-end leather. The dashboard has been reworked with great craftsmanship with large, lighted dials and meters. A climate control system and a music system mounted in its center make it s good vehicle for long drives. Though the cabin is smaller compared to the Porsche 911, there is ample legroom, headroom and shoulder-space in the seats. Safety belts and airbags are standard features within. The trunk is decently big with more than 10.5 cubic feet of space and the large luggage shelf behind the seats is an added bonus. Cruise control, Bluetooth, heated seats and seat-memory are available as options along with a navigation system.

The exteriors of V8 Vantage are available as two trims - a convertible and a hatchback coupe. In both of them, the proportions, dimensions, lines, lithe and form have been designed to give an athletic and sculpted look. The car sits low at just over 120 cms for driving stability and has been constructed from bonded aluminium for lightness and strength. The large, paired headlamps sit on either side of a gritty smiling grille. The tail lamps are also large and are on either side of a small opening of the large boot. Both the models have a smooth, curving roofline that almost seems to grow till the front and rear ends! The car weighs about 1,550 kgs and measures about 450 cms in legnth.
