It’s really hard to improve on perfection, maybe that’s why Aston Martin didn’t even bother trying to change the V8 Vantage 2010 model substantially! The car is one of the prettiest GTs ever made, and they did the right thing not messing up with a good thing. So on the outside, the changes only include new ten-spoke 19-inch diamond-finish rims, clear rear lights and new sills coming straight from V12 Vantage.
Inside the car, updates include new carbon fiber seats which are 17kg lighter than the previous ones, and a new 1000-watt Bang & Olufsen audio system. Unfortunately, the only part of the Vantage that really needed an upgrade, the engine, remains intact in terms of power. Only its CO2 emission is dropped 328g/km to 315g/km for the manual and 300g/km with the Sportshift transmission.
The pricing for 2010 V8 Vantage also remains unchanged at £87,101 for the coupe and £94,931 for the roadster.
