The Vantage V8 is Aston Martin’s most up to date sports car model. Launched in 2018, it succeeded the original Vantage model that had been in production for 12 years, so it had a lot to live up to. But if there’s one thing Aston Martin has always been good at it, it’s bettering what came before.
Design wise, it shares much in common with its supercar counterpart, the Aston Martin DB11, including using the same 4.0 litre V8 engine from which this model partly takes its name, powering 503 bhp. This is paired with a rear-mounted 8-speed automatic gearbox, making it the only vehicle to have dual manual and automatic transmission.
Its 50/50 rear/front weight distribution ensures a perfectly balanced grip for the track, and when you see the speed stats, you understand what this beauty is capable of: 0 - 100mph in 7.7 seconds, and a superhot top speed of 195 mph.
You will be in for a once in a lifetime experience whether you choose the Aston Martin V8, DB9, or DBS. You can drive an Aston Martin through Trackdays.co.uk on over 15 circuits in the United Kingdom, each one a brutal supercar experience.
The cars are not only among the most popular supercars in the motoring industry, but are also distinctively British - go ahead and give yourself or someone special a memorable driving experience! Use our Aston Martin calendar to find a convenient date.

Booking an Aston Martin Driving Experience
Please verify the validity term of the experience if you buy an open gift certificate for an Aston Martin package. This indicates the deadline for activation and use.
Please note that when you make a reservation for a driving experience your reservation request is subject to availability. Usually we can confirm your reservations in 48 hours, however you should not plan anything in relation to your order until you have received a final confirmation email. You do not get a confirmation immediately after you submit a booking request.
In addition, it is important to ensure that the driver fulfils all criteria for age, weight, height and licence, while buying Aston Martin Experiences. There are a number of criteria for each event so make sure that all essential information has been carefully verified. Please contact our customer support staff if you have any questions - they will be happy to help.
If the experience is for junior drivers this is often included in the package name, although it is not always the case. If on the day of the experience the driver does not satisfy the criteria, they will probably be unable to drive and instead take a passenger trip.
