Aston Martin is releasing a special edition V8 Vantage S in Europe that takes its inspiration from the brand’s numerous successes on the race track. Inspired by Aston Martin’s motorsport activities in the GT4 racing series, the Vantage SP10 is a road model that has been engineered in the style of Aston Martin’s GT4 racers.
With a 4.7L V8 that packs 430 horsepower and 361 lb-ft. of torque the Vantage SP10 reaches 0-62 mph in 4.5 seconds and has a top speed of 190 mph. The Vantage SP10 is pretty close to the V8 Vantage S, but with the addition of a six-speed manual transmission, which is the first V8 Vantage S to feature a six-speed manual transmission.
Jeffrey L. Scott, Managing Director of Aston Martin Lagonda of Europe: “Aston Martin has a long and successful tradition in motorsport. Since in the GT4 class the technical similarities between racing cars and their road model cousins are extremely pronounced, many of our customers see their own Aston Martin as a way to identify with our motorsport activities, or they actively participate as ‘gentlemen drivers’.
“With the new Vantage SP10 we are now offering a V8 Vantage S with a special motorsport and race track flair – at a competitive price point.”
Both the Coupé and the Roadster Vantage SP10 are available in Ceramic Grey Metallic. The convertible top of the Roadster is Titan Grey. It rides on 19-inch cast alloy rims with V-shaped spokes in a diamond turn finish and black brake callipers painted in high-gloss black add a bit more style. The Vantage SP10 also gets a front splitter and the carbon rear diffuser and clear rear lamps.
Black is the dominant color in the interior. Entirely in line with its motorsport pedigree, the Coupé features characteristic Vantage S seat and backrest covers and a sports steering wheel in Black Alcantara. The silver stitching offers a strong contrast. And the interior is rounded off by a roof liner in Black Alcantara. In contrast to the Coupé, the Roadster features black leather seat and backrest covers and a black leather steering wheel, also with silver stitching. Both versions are equipped with a center console in Piano Black. The instrument panel is trimmed entirely with leather and embellished with silver stitching.
The Aston Martin Vantage SP10 starts at €96,635.
