One of the highlights at Aston Martin’s Geneva Motor Show 2012 stand is the V8 Vantage Facelift model. The Aston Martin V8 Vantage is one of Aston Martin’s most popular models which means there is a lot of interest. For the 2012 model year, the V8 Vantage gets a modest refresh keeping it fresh against the competition.
The revised 4.7 liter 420bhp entry-level V8 Vantage features a range of improvements, most importantly the standard six-speed manual transmission remains, but the optional six-speed Sportshift automated manual transmission has now been replaced with the seven-speed Sportshift II.
The facelift Aston Martin V8 Vantage has also received a number of styling changes inspired by the Vantage S and N400 limited edition. For more details on the model, please visit our earlier post.
