To be sold as a coupe or roadster, the SP10 will be available in Europe (excluding UK) at a starting price of 96,635 EUR (plus VAT). Under the hood is the same V8 4.7-liter engine producing 430 hp (321 kW) and 361 lb-ft (490 Nm) but as standard is connected to a manual six-speed transmission.

Optionally available is a 7-speed automated manual transmission from the regular V8 Vantage S. Regardless of the gearbox choice, it hits 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.5 seconds before reaching a top speed of 189 mph (305 km/h).

Both coupe and roadster versions can get a Ceramic Grey Metallic finish, while the roadster's top has Titan Grey paint. They ride on 19-inch alloys and come with black brake calipers, front splitter, carbon fiber rear diffuser and clear rear lamps. The interior cabin is mostly black and can be optionally ordered with a 1000W Bang & Olufsen BeoSound audio system.
