The 2015 Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT is meant to channel the racing heritage of the Marque and indeed Aston Martin has won an accomplishment on the fact that the engine is almost the same as the one found in the Vantage GTE cars from the World Endurance Championship, Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona and GT4 Challenge cars.
Exactly how close the streetcar is to the race car is debatable, but it has proven its worth in on road and off-road expedition’s adventure. The only thing I would have dropped from the race seeming exterior appearance is that beluga whale lipstick that is synonymous around the grille.

The V8 Vantage S manages the 60-mph run in 4.3 seconds with a maximum speed clocking at 190 mph, while the standard V8 Vantage takes 4.9 seconds and tops out at 180 mph. Powering the Vantage GT is a 430-horsepower version of the V8 Vantage’s 4.7-liter V-8, which can either be hooked up with a six-speed manual or seven-speed automated manual with paddle shifters. Owners can expect a 0-60 mph time of 4.6 seconds and a top speed of 190 mph.

Leather (Lux Mill or semi-aniline), Alcantara, and metallic trim are the main staples of the Vantage cabin, with tasteful use of high-end plastics to fill the gaps.
Aston’s trademark crystalline key fob is also found here, plugging into the dash to become the push-button starter. We would opt for the available carbon-fiber interior trim, which covers the center stack and door pulls in the material, even tinted if you that is your wish.
