Power and performance
Gallery Aston Martin Vantage

The V8 Vantage has a 4.7 liter 420 horsepower engine with either an automatic or a really nice-to-use manual transmission. While the Vantage might not be the fastest car out there, there is plenty of power and the acceleration is accompanied by a lovely whirring engine note. It's not the usual motorboat burble you expect from a big V8 but this more refined sound is just right for this car.
