Aston Martin has previewed the facelift for the V8 Vantage ahead of its scheduled unveiling at the Geneva Motor Show on March 6th. The entry level model of the Vantage range receives a few styling updates for the new model year.

The new facelift can be distinguished from its predecessor by its new lower front bumper, air splitter, redesigned side-sills and a new rear bumper equipped with an integrated diffuser. The base model also receives some performance inducing updates that were originally derived for the Vantage S, these include quicker steering, bigger brakes and wider tires.


Under the hood, the V8 Vantage's 4.7-liter V-8 engine keeps the same output of 420bhp ( 426 PS / 313 kW ) whilst the high-performance Vantage S continues to get 430bhp ( 436PS / 321 kW ) and 490Nm (361lb ft) of torque. A six-speed manual transmission comes as standard, but the optional six-speed Sportshift automated manual transmission has been replaced with the seven-speed Sportshift II.

Pricing for the Aston Martin V8 Vantage will begin at £84,995 (€108,500 in Germany) in the guise of both coupe and roadster whilst the Vantage S will start at £99,995 (€128,500 in Germany).
