The Aston Martin V8 Vantage underwent a significant upgrade last year with the addition of a bigger and more powerful engine, as well as several other minor tweaks. As the 2010 model year approaches, the stylish coupe and roadster are now reportedly due for a new round of updates.

Set to be announced early next year, the latest 2010 Aston Martin V8 Vantage sports optional 10-spoke 19-inch wheels with a diamond turned and silver finish, Kevlar and carbon-fiber seats, clear tail-lights similar to those on the V12 Vantage, N400-style side sills, a Magnum silver bonnet and side strakes, and an optional 1,000 watt B&O sound system.

Another important change--at least for some--is a lower CO2 output. Brought about by transmission tweaks and remapped engine management software, the manual equipped V8 Vantage now achieves a CO2 rating of 315 g/km, while the automatic model comes in at 300 g/km.

Sadly, there’s still no sign that the extreme V12 Vantage is heading our ways. Stay tuned for an update.

  1. And to think I was afraid the amount of CO2 would be going up in the next generation, silly me.

  2. How good would the Vantage V8 or V12 look as a Shooting Brake ?
    Well skip the V12 as we Yanks won't be getting that one . But the V8 ? I do need the room to transport those guitars you know . ( Thinking ) . An Aston Martin Vantage V8 Shooting Brake .

  3. As I blow 15" of snow from my drive in early December, I'd rather kick Al Gore in the bag than worry about CO2. F*&king watermellon enviro's!

  4. Is there any particular reason why we don't have the V12 Vantage? I mean, I assume America can be a huge market for that car.
