V8 Vantage Convertible:

LA Auto Show – 2008 Aston Martin V8 Vantage Convertible

1

The Aston Martin V8 Vantage went on sale in 2005, taking up residence in Aston’s lineup and the bottom end as the “affordable” Aston and gunning for the Porsche 911. As true of most all Aston Martins, the V8 Vantage is beautiful, with a hand-crafted interior and engine. The next step, of course, is a convertible.
Can I have this as my AutoPacific company car? I’d give up my Audi TT for it!

Aston Martin used Los Angeles as a backdrop for introducing their latest breathtakingly gorgeous roadster. Los Angeles is a strong market for Aston Martin, and convertibles as a rule sell in higher volumes than coupes in the States, so the decision to launch in Los Angeles is glamorous and smart. And Aston Martin convertibles command enough attention and carry enough presence that they don’t need a Hollywood starlet like Jennifer Love Hewitt (see the Sebring introduction) to introduce their convertible, though Jennifer’s scripted appreciation for the Sebring might have sounded more believable applied to the Aston. In fact, instead of a paid celebrity endorsement at the press introduction for the V8 Vantage convertible, Automobile Magazine Editor-in-Chief Gavin Conway presented Aston Martin with an All-Star award for the convertible.
