For 2012, Aston Martin updated its entry-level sports car model, the Vantage, with its biggest update since 2008.

The facelifted 2012 V8 Vantage receives the Vantage S treatment with a lowered front bumper with aero splitter, new side skirts, and a new rear bumper with diffuser.

While the engine performance is the same with 420-hp out of a 4.7L V8 as its predecessor, there is an all-new Shortshift II seven-speed automatic transmission available as an option. Other aspects of the vehicle’s performance has been updated, however, with a refined chassis, more agile steering, bigger two-piece six-piston brakes, and wider tires.

Take a look at a video featuring the new 2012 Aston Martin V8 Vantage below.
