The special edition V8 Vantage S SP10 was introduced alongside a similar coupe version in February 2013.  Initially it was announced that the SP10 would only be built in LHD form for continental Europe, although eventually is also became available in RHD for the UK market.  The car has been inspired by the success of the V8 Vantage GT4 particularly in the VLN endurance championship at the Nürburgring. If you were wondering, the name, SP10, is the class that the GT4 competes in.

The SP10 was considered rather special as it the first time that the V8 Vantage S had been made available in combination with the six speed manual gearbox. You will no doubt remember that when introduced, the ‘S’ was only ever intended to receive the Sportshift 2 gearbox. It has to be noted that it was also possible to specify the Sportshift 2 gearbox on the SP10 model.

The cosmetic specification of the SP10 is as follows.

  • Ceramic Grey metallic coachwork, later Onyx Black offered too
  • Black leather with Alcantara seat inserts and Silver stitching
  • Alcantara trimmed steering wheel
  • Piano Black centre console
  • Black leather steering wheel
  • 19 inch V spoke wheels, gloss black and diamond turned
  • Black painted brake calipers
  • Clear rear lamp clusters
  • 750W Premium Audio System

Although the SP10 was initially a special edition, production of the car continued well into 2015, such was it’s popularity.
