First unveiled in 1977, the Aston Martin Vantage was dubbed as Britain’s first supercar, being as it was comparable to the big American muscle cars of the time. But we can vouch and say that even today, it is just as powerful, if not more so, than some of its Stateside counterparts.
The power behind this British brawn of motoring comes from its four 48IDF2/100 Weber carburetors and DOHC V8 engine, pumping 432 bhp. Its speed performance is also just as brash and bold as its souped up design.
Blistering from 0 - 60 mph in 6.6 seconds, it boasts a maximum top speed of 146 mph. And whilst some things may remain better left in the 70s, a thrill seeking ride in a classic Vantage is definitely not one of them.
