2017 Aston Martin V8 Vantage GTS Priced From $137,820

GAYDON, England — Prices for the 2017 Aston Martin V8 Vantage GTS, on sale at U.S. dealerships now, start at $137,820, including gas-guzzler tax and a $2,825 destination fee.

That's the price of entry for the V8 coupe with manual transmission. The roadster models start at $152,320, and moving up to the V12 Vantage S will cost a minimum of $191,620, both with gas-guzzler and destination charge.

The Vantage takes on other exotic competitors, including the Jaguar XKR, Maserati GranTurismo and Porsche 911.

For the 2017 model year Aston Martin has consolidated the previous lineup that consisted of the V8 Vantage, Vantage S and Vantage GT into the new V8 Vantage GTS, which can be upgraded into Sport Edition and Lux Edition versions.

Standard on all models is the familiar 4.7-liter V8 engine that puts out 430 horsepower and 361 pound-feet of torque. The engine is mated to either a six-speed manual or optional seven-speed automatic transmission.

The Sport Edition features carbon-fiber exterior trim pieces and black finish on the grille, headlamp bezels, hood vents and window surrounds, as well as Graphite five-spoke wheels and performance suspension.

Inside, the Sport Edition surrounds occupants with black or gray leather set off by textured Alcantara in a contrasting color, along with a carbon-fiber center console, black rotary controls and a sport steering wheel trimmed in Alcantara.

The Lux Edition starts off with what Aston Martin calls Comfort Suspension, then adds exterior trim in a gloss black finish, along with bright metal grille, headlamp bezels, hood vents and window surrounds, complemented by bright silver five-spoke wheels.

The Lux interior features an extensive selection of leather colors, a gloss black fascia, satin chrome rotary dials, a leather-rimmed steering wheel and a standard 1,000-watt Bang & Olufsen sound system.

Edmunds says: Shoppers in the market for a British luxury motorcar should get in touch with an Aston Martin dealer soon about the new V8 Vantage GTS.
