International super-auto maker Aston Martin has just released their special edition for Continental Europe, the v8 Vantage SP10. This 6-speed manual transmission will allow you to burn rubber and power through any track or fun road, whenever you want.
With luxury and performance, this Aston Martin will let you enjoy yourself and relax in complete style. The difference between the Vantage SP10 and the Vantage S is the 6-speed transmission.
The interior is a dark and solid black throughout the dash, steering wheel and other components giving it a very sleek look. Aston Martin, a British firm, has really done a great job with this beauty and we recommend checking it out for yourself if you have the coin for it. The Sp10 was inspired by the Gt4 races and there is even an optional 7-speed manual transmission if you really want to push the limits. Check out some of the attached photos of this beautiful vehicle and let us know your thoughts in the comment area below.
Manual transmissions, it seems, are going the way of the dinosaur, forced into obsolescence by the faster and more fuel-efficient flappy-paddle gearbox. You can’t even buy a new Ferrari with a manual transmission, but Aston Martin is a bit more traditional. Even its new limited-edition V8 Vantage S model retains the row-your-own gearing of other 2013 V8 Vantage and Vantage S models.
Called the Aston Martin V8 Vantage SP10, the car is meant as a tribute to the British firm’s V8 Vantage GT4 racer and is named in tribute to the VLN series’ SP10 class, in which the GT4 competes. Power comes from a 4.7-liter V-8, rated at 430 horsepower and 361 pound-feet of torque.
While a six-speed manual transmission is standard in the SP10, buyers can also opt for the seven-speed automated manual gearbox used in standard V8 Vantage S model. Either choice will get you from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.5 seconds, on the way to a top speed of 189 mph.
Buyers can choose from coupe or convertible SP10 models, which come sprayed in Ceramic Grey Metallic paint. Convertible models get a contrasting Titan Grey roof, and both share 19-inch wheels with black brake calipers, a unique front splitter and a carbon fiber rear diffuser.
If that’s the good news, here’s the bad: the 2013 Aston Martin V8 Vantage SP10 will be available in continental Europe only, priced from 96,635 euros ($129,607) for the coupe version.
