This car review is specific to this model, not the actual vehicle for sale.
The Aston Martin V8 Vantage is an exotic sports car designed to be driven everyday, if an owner is so inclined, with extreme ease of use and practical function. The V8 Vantage comes in hardtop and convertible models, and is equipped with a 380-hp 4.3-liter V8 engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission (automated manual with paddle-shift optional). Standard safety features include airbags, antilock brakes, traction control and an electronic stability system. For 2008, The Aston Martin V8 Vantage gets minor changes, including an updated steering wheel that features audio controls, and the ever-popular auxiliary jack for MP3 players that are popping up in all the newer vehicles.
