Catering to all true piston heads, there is nothing more appetizing than a car that’s rear-wheel drive, sporting a naturally aspirated front-engine throaty V8 with an exhaust note you never tired of and of course - the manual gearbox. The Aston Martin V8 Vantage is not only a desire, it’s a necessity.
In May of 2008 Aston Martin announced its all new technological updates for the Vantage, including improvements to the engine, transmissions and suspension. It received all new Bilstein dampers, lightweight flywheel and an all-new designed fire-breathing handcrafted 4.7 litre V8 producing 420hp launching the Aston from 0 - 100 in just 4.3 seconds.
Available here is an Australian delivered 2010 Aston Martin V8 Vantage ordered in Tungsten Silver over Obsidian Black leather trim which has travelled just over 57,190 kms since new and today still in exceptional condition.

A manual completely transforms the drive, the 6-Speed transmission selection feels mechanical and rewarding with every change followed by a bellow from arguably one of the best exhaust notes in existence. The steering is direct but light and the sports suspension is firm yet absorbs the imperfections on the road.
Although the Vantage is a sportscar rival to the Porsche 911, its hereditary roots derive from its gran-touring siblings. The cabin is comfortable, spacious and the driver is greeted with a myriad of top-shelf textiles, solid glass and metal switch gear, Alcantara headlining, plush-pile carpets and even machined aluminum gauge faces.
Storage space is plentiful, with enough room for travel luggage and golf clubs, perfect for weekend trips away.
The quality craftsmanship continues onto the exterior, the beautiful unblemished coachwork contrasts the stunning lines of each aluminum panel, even the side-gills and Aston's signature front grille are real metal, not chromed plastic.
Complete with two keys, the original leather-bound log books with a full Aston Martin service history and the last one being completed just before landing on our showroom floor this Vantage has been well preserved and ready for the most particular of owners
With such low kilometers and featuring a rare manual transmission makes this car the perfect weekender, tourer or even a one-way ticket to liven up your daily commute.
