This 2016 Aston Martin Vantage GTS Roadster at St. Louis Motorcars is finished in a brilliant Yellow Tang Metallic complimented by an obsidian black interior, making it one of the wildest cars to leave England in decades. The Vantage GTS is new for 2016 and was developed exclusively for the US. It combines the 4.7 liter V8 and six-speed manual transmission with a revised suspension. Previous models have been derided as too forgiving in the corners, trading grip for civility.
Their refusal to discontinue the manual transmission is a statement to the world that Aston Martin will continue to build the perfect GT car. You don’t have many choices for naturally aspirated V8 power if you want to shift your own gears. But the additional content is what sets the Aston Martin apart from the competition. Aside from the special order paint, this GTS is a “Lux Edition,” which includes gloss black exterior trim and the Bang & Olufsen 1000 watt audio system. The seats have yellow contrast stitching, and everything between them has been redesigned. Controls for infotainment and climate have been grouped into symmetrical pods in front of the polished shifter plate.
Not only is the 430 horsepower V8 mounted behind the front wheels, the transmission is rear mounted and connected by a carbon fiber driveshaft. This is how the Vantage GTS offers perfect weight distribution and more cockpit space than you are accustomed to. A 3.91 rear differential will make for blistering starts and respectable fuel economy on the highway. Don’t follow the masses to another boring dual clutch automatic.
