Luxury Cars: ASTON MARTIN’s 2015 V8 VANTAGE GT
Aston Martin is one of the biggest brands in the luxury car industry and we are excited to take a look at the latest v8 Vantage GT that the company will launch in 2015.
We have to start with the price tag of just $99,000( $17,000 lower than the previous starting models), making it the cheapest within the company. With that kind of money you can buy serious performance and badge appeal.
The design looks amazing, like you can take the car straight from the track towards a red carpet event, just lower the top off and you have guaranteed yourself a front row with the valet.
Although it isn’t the fastest car the company ever produced, your pulse will say the contrary and with the lower price tag it opens the door for more enthusiasts to experience the super-car phenomenon.
With 430 horsepower and 361 pound feet of torque the Vantage does one thing great: convert gasoline into speed, a lot of it!
The dashboard is kept in the traditional Aston Martin style, beautifully and cleanly organized. Although it’s not the most user friendly, it makes the experience so much more indulging.
Full disclosure: we love the convertible! It puts out such a strong feeling of achievement and success that needs no more clarification. It tells the world who you are, what you love, what you stands for and it does it naturally.
The Vantage v8 might just be the last manual shifting gearbox Aston as automatic shifting is finally taking over.
The colors pay tribute to the old racing days and they come in Yellow on Green, Red on Blue, White on Silver and Red on White.
Although it’s the cheapest Aston out there we still don’t know what we think about the pricing. As a two seat car the competition is fierce especially with models like the Jaguar F Type, Audi R8, Porsche 911 out there with similar or even cheaper price options.
Aston Martins were cars you aspired to own but you probably wouldn’t, but with the Vantage v8 that spark is reignited considering that the next Aston in line is almost double in price.
With raving fans that have their pockets always full, backing their passion, the people at Aston Martin are continuing the legacy they have started providing the world with state of the art luxury automobiles and we thank them for it!
