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.
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.
