Available as a coupe or roadster, Aston Martin is releasing a new 2012 V8 Vantage. Restyled with a larger air intake, new rear diffuser & side sills – it’s as sexy as you’d expect a new Aston to be. A new 420hp V8 takes the reigns enabling 0-60 to be reached in 4.7 seconds, and this handsome sports car tops out at 180mph. While the six-speed manual remains, a new optional seven-speed automated manual Sportshift II transmission is now available. The new F1 style transmission is standard on the V8 S model which also bumps horsepower to 430 and has a top speed of 190mph. The 2011 V8 Vantage started around $125k so expect to pay more the 2012 when it reaches US dealers.
