Coupe and Roadster, Sport and Lux editions

During April 2016, Aston Martin announced a new limited edition variation of the V8 Vantage S, available only in the North American market. The GTS is intended to fit somewhere between the entry level GT and the full 'S' spec Vantage.

V8 Vantage GTS

The GTS is fitted with the 4.7-liter V8 in ‘S’ spec and comes with either the  conventional six-speed manual or 7-speed single-clutch automated Sportshift III transmission. Essentially the car has a common interior specification although there are two variations, the ‘Sport’ and the ‘Lux’ version.

The ‘Sport’ offers carbon fibre features as well as the sport suspension which was optional on the regular Vantage. Inside, the Sport is trimmed with either black or grey leather with either alcantara or leather detailing. The centre console is of carbon fibre finish and the rotary controls are black.

The Lux version lacks the sport suspension and adds in some gloss black exterior elements such as the front splitter and rear diffuser, headlamp surrounds, bonnet vent strakes, and window surrounds. The grille has a bright finish which is an unusual feature of the V8 Vantage. The seats are leather, although the colour can be chosen from a wide selection. The rotary controls are finished in satin chrome finish with piano black centre consoles.

GTS will come with the latest AMi III infotainment and navigation system, also used on the current Rapide S and Vanquish  models.

Only 100 examples of the GTS are to be but, in both coupe and Roadster forms; the starting price of the GTS is in the region of $137,820.
