Aston Martin will be using the Geneva Auto Show to debut a freshened version of their popular V8 Vantage. The model has been on the market since 2005, so a mid-life refresh is in order. Sporting an updated exterior, increased power under the hood, and other minor mechanical improvements should help keep the model a sales success.

The big news is a major interior overhaul, which will most likely include higher quality materials and a more luxurious appearance. The update could also mean the end to Volvo sourced components, a legacy of Ford’s ownership of Aston Martin. Currently the Vantage produces 380 horsepower from a 4.3L V8 engine, allowing the car to get from 0-60mph in 4.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 175mph.

Reports also indicate that Aston will show an updated version of the DB9, which will likely see similar improvements.
