Although the Vantage name has been a key one for Aston Martin throughout its history, particularly for its Grand Tourer, high performance models of the 1970s and 1980s, the V8 Vantage takes on that heritage and brings it forward into the 21st century.
First produced in 2005, and unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show that same year, the V8 Vantage went on to be in production for twelve years thereafter. It is one of, if not the most streamlined and supple models in Aston Martin’s fleet, a serious contender to rival the Porsche 911 for performance, style and power.
At 4.38m long, it is powered on a 4.3 litre V8 engine, producing 420 bhp, mid-mounted with a rear-mounted transaxle, offering a 49/51 rear/front weight distribution. Speed wise, it cruises from 0 - 60 mph in 4.8 seconds, and from 0 - 100 mph in an even more jaw dropping 11.4 seconds, with top speeds possible of 175 mph.

Making a reservation for a driving session with Aston Martin.
If you're purchasing an open gift certificate for an Aston Martin package, double-check the validity term, as certain vouchers and special offers may have a shorter or longer activation and usage duration, which will be mentioned clearly on the voucher.
Remember that booking an Aston Martin Experience on a certain day is a request, and the day and time you choose are subject to availability. Bookings are generally confirmed within 48 hours, however you should wait until you get a final confirmation email before making any plans. You will get instant confirmation after submitting a booking request. This is done prior to the reservation being officially confirmed.
Make sure the driver fulfils all of the age, weight, height, and driving licence criteria before buying Aston Martin Experiences. Because each event will have its own set of requirements, this information is critical. If you are unsure about anything please contact our customer service team and they will be happy to help.
We will generally specify that an experience is exclusively for younger drivers in the package name, although this is not always the case. If the driver does not fulfil the criteria on the day of the event, he or she will not be allowed to drive and will instead be given an experience as a passenger.
