Benefits of Driving a 2011 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Coupe

The entry-level V8 Vantage may start in the low six figures, but with it comes the heritage and exclusivity of the Aston Martin brand. Even the lowliest 4.7-liter V8 puts out an amazing 420 horsepower, while the 6-liter V12 puts out 510 hp for plenty of horsepower either way. Luxury appointments like leather seats and a navigation system are standard, while options at this level include an umbrella fitted in the trunk.

What's new for 2011?

For 2011, the V8 Vantage coupe and roadster remain largely unchanged. 2010 saw the addition of a V12 Vantage coupe to the line, which featured a much larger, more powerful engine, as well as a sport button that changes engine, throttle and exhaust settings to high-performance positions. This year sees the addition of a V8 Vantage S model, which adds slightly more aggressive styling, more power and the V12's sport button. The S also features a standard single-clutch 7-speed automatic transmission called Sportshift II. A special edition V8 Vantage N420 is also available this year, combining select options and colors to celebrate Aston Martin's racing history.

Model Review

The V8 Vantage coupe and roadster carry a 4.2-liter 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-liter 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 new for 2011, 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.
