Aston adds new extras and tweaks the styling of its V8 sports car
10 December 2009

Aston Martin has launched a revised V8 Vantage for the 2010 model year.

Cosmetic changes have been kept to a minimum. The car in these pictures features new optional 10-spoke, 19-inch forged diamond-finish alloy wheels, while a Magnesium Silver bonnet, side strake meshes, and the clear rear lights and sills from the N400 are also options.

The CO2 output of the manual model has dropped from 328g/km to 315g/km, thanks to some revised gear ratios and ECU remapping. On the Sportshift model, CO2 drops to 300g/km.

Inside, the V8 Vantage gets new optional lightweight seats, which use carbonfibre to save 17kg over the standard seats. A 1000W Bang & Olufsen sound system is also optional

The revised model is available to order now, with the first deliveries starting early in 2010. Prices start at £83,191 for the coupe and £91,021 for the roadster.

I can't believe they are updating the range again, and still haven't replaced the SatNav.

It is without a doubt the worst SatNav in any car on sale at the moment, utterly useless.

Surely they could spend a little bit to buy a new system in.

Boring, when are they going to employ a designer ?
