2012 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Convertible

Benefits of Driving a 2012 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Convertible

The entry-level V8 Vantage's price may start in the low six figures, but with that price comes the heritage and exclusivity of the Aston Martin brand. Even the base 4.7L V8 puts out an amazing 420 horsepower, while the 6.0L V12 makes an almost unbelievable 510 horsepower. Luxury appointments, such as leather seats and a navigation system are standard, while options at this level include an umbrella fitted in the trunk.

What's new for 2012?

After a few styling tweaks and engine updates in 2011, the Aston Martin Vantage returns with no big changes. The N420 special edition is no longer available, but Aston plans to build more special edition Vantages in the near future.

Model Strengths

  • Power and panache
  • luxurious interior
  • available high-performance engine

Model Review

The V8 Vantage coupe and roadster carry a 4.2L V8 engine that generates 420 hp and 302 lb-ft of torque mated to a either a 6-speed manual or Sportshift automated manual transmission. The 6.0L V12 engine makes 510 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque, and it only comes with a 6-speed manual. A V8 Vantage S model is tuned to 430 hp and 361 lb-ft of torque, and features faster acceleration and a higher top speed thanks to the all-new 7-speed Sportshift II automatic. The V8 and V12 Vantages are rear-wheel drive with the engine mounted under the hood, just behind the front axle.

Original Warranty  help
Original Warranty
An original warranty is the warranty associated with a vehicle when it is brand new. In addition to the original warranty, select items, like tires, are typically covered by respective manufacturers. Also, an act of Federal law sometimes provides protection for certain components, like emissions equipment.
The original warranty is often broken down into multiple sections, including:
Basic Warranty:
Typically covers everything except for parts that wear out through normal use of the vehicle. Examples of non-covered items are brake pads, wiper blades and filters.
Drivetrain Warranty:
This warranty covers items the basic warranty does not protect. Wear and tear items such as hoses will not be covered, but key items like the engine, transmission, drive axles and driveshaft often will be.
Roadside Assistance:
The level of service differs greatly with this warranty, but many manufacturers offer a toll-free number that helps provide assistance in case you run out of gas, get a flat tire or lock your keys in the car.
Corrosion Warranty:
This warranty focuses on protecting you from holes caused by rust or corrosion in your vehicle's sheet metal.
Please check the owner's manual, visit a local dealership or look at the manufacturer's website to learn more about the specifics of the warranties that apply to a vehicle.

Basic 3 Years/100,000 Miles
Drivetrain 3 Years/100,000 Miles
Corrosion 10 Years/100,000 Miles
Roadside Assistance 2 Years/100,000 Miles
