Aston Martin reveals V8 Vantage updates

Aston Martin has revealed updates to its 2012 Vantage range.

Prices will start at 84,995 and will rise to 330,000 for the limited edition V12 Zagato.

The upgrades to the V8 Vantage include quicker, more responsive steering and bigger brakes. Hill Start Assist is also now included as standard.

Aston's new seven-speed semi-automatic transmission is also available as an option, replacing the previous six-speed auto.

Styling changes inspired by the Vantage S and N400 limited edition include a lower front bumper and splitter, while revised sills and a new rear bumper with a diffuser add to the visual upgrades.

These technical and styling changes have been applied to both the V8 Vantage Coupe and Roadster models, with prices starting from 84,995.
