Five-Point Inspection: 2013 Aston Martin V8 Vantage S Roadster

5. Price of Admission

Like any supercar the V8 Vantage S Roadster is saddled with a super price tag. Base MSRP for the car is around $150,000, including Uncle Sam’s buzz-killing gas-guzzler tax. But what’s more outrageous than that is the destination and delivery fee Aston Martin charges. It totals nearly $3,000! They must ship them out of Britain aboard steamships that burn banknotes for fuel.

The model we tested cost a healthy $155,000, though it was pretty light on options. It had a $1,595 premium sound system, $3,190 worth of 10-spoke diamond-turned wheels and a $450 alarm upgrade. If you can afford it, the V8 Vantage S Roadster is a welcome addition to any garage.
