Aston Martin is paying homage to its GT4 racing success with a new speed demon. The Aston Martin Vantage SP10 is a special edition V8 Vantage S for continental Europe, and it boasts a serious kick! Yes, that is continental only–even the Brits won’t be able to get their mitts on one!

The Aston Martin Vantage SP10 offers a unique way for fans to get their hands on a V8 with a proper six-speed manual transmission. This marks a departure from the seven-speed dual-clutch available on the V8 Vantage S, which is a cool option. With so many brands phasing out the manual gearbox, it is refreshing to see this being made available for the more hands-on drivers. Now, if only this were for more than just the European drivers!
Aside from the manual gearbox, the Aston Martin SP10 is about the same as the standard Vantage S. Under the hood is the same 4.7-liter V8 purring from the force of 430 horses and 361 pound-feet of torque.
There are certainly some special touches and tweaks for the SP, including the following:
- Special Ceramic Grey Metallic exterior
- Painted 19-inch rims
- Black interior with bold silver stitching
- That amazing manual transmission, of course!
This exclusive addition to the Aston Martin fleet will likely sell out ahead of official release, depending on the number of units the brand intends to produce. Don’t miss your chance to experience the brand!
