Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

No official announcements have been released by Aston Martin with regards to its plan to upgrade the V8 Vantage for model year 2010 however, according to a source who spoke with Car Magazine, the refreshed series is already available for orders.

Expect the first models of model year 2010 Vantage V8 to start to be delivered in the first few months of 2010.

Pricing for the coupe starts at £83,191 ($135,100) while the Roadster is priced from £91,021 ($147,800). According to the source, the Vantage can also be customized with 10-spoke forged 19-inch alloy wheels with diamond turned and silver finish, lightweight seats with kevlar and carbonfiber construction, clear rear lamps, N400 sill design, magnum silver bonnet and side strake meshes and 1000W B&Q hi-fi system.

While the 2010 Aston Martin Vantage continues to be powered by the 4.7-liter engine; this time, the unit has been modified to release less emissions.

Preliminary figures are pointing to 315 grams of CO2 every kilometer, down from 328 g/km for the current model. For comparison, potential buyers should take into account that the V12 configuration comprises a 6.0-liter engine that develops 510 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and 569 Nm of torque at 5,750 rpm. 

The engine releases 388 grams of CO2 per kilometer and burns up to 20.3 l/100km (11.6 mpg) of gasoline every 100 kilometer.

It also achieves 24 mpg (9.8 L/100Km) highway and 17.3 mpg (13.6 L/100Km) combined. When it comes to performance, the V12 configuration enables the car to go from 0 to 100 km/g in 4.2 seconds and lets it achieve a top speed of 190 mph (306 km/h).
