Aston Martin has unveiled a closer look at its V8 Vantage GT. The model is set to be revealed at the New York Auto Show 2014, where Aston Martin will also be presenting the DB9 Carbon Edition. The V8 Vantage GT is almost identical to its predecessor, the V8 Vantage N430, which we covered earlier this year. The main difference being that the V8 Vantage GT will be available to buy in the U.S. As a result, it has all the same performance features, including an upgraded 4.7-liter V8 engine tuned to 430 hp at 7,300 rpm. This allows the car to reach 305 km/h at just 4.6 seconds. Customers will have the choice of a six-speed manual gearbox fitted as standard with the option of a close-ratio seven-speed Sportshift II automated manual transmission.
The V8 Vantage GT it set to retail at $99,000 USD in the U.S., with the DB9 Carbon Edition starting at $199,995.
