2015 Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT

The 2015 Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT became the least-expensive and most focussed Aston Martin since the 1980s. If you want an Aston Martin, it is pretty obvious that you have to save every penny. Although by the fall of 2015, prospective buyers needed to save less as Aston Martin introduced the new and totally magnificent V8 Vantage GT for an exceptional price. The coupe became available for just $102,725, while the roadster could be purchased for $177,225, that being a saving of $18,500 over the standard V8 Vantage.

Quite the Deal by Aston Martin Standards

The new Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT has an applicably bad-ass look and in any of its five colour options its super eye-catchy. So, whether you drive the Speedway White with silver, Mariana Blue with silver, Skyfall Silver with anthracite, the Jet Black with silver or the Allora Green with white, heads will be turning in awe of your wheels.

No matter how you look at it, the Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT is a high watermark in the world of most amazing designs. It will never look dated and is one of those so rare, it’s as classically modern as it was from the start. But of course, the Vantage GT comes with some added flair with its accent stripes, pillar/roof, rocker panels and it looks simply sensational with yellow accents.

Sophisticated, Stylish, Classy simply Tasteful

You would not always describe the interiors of Aston Martins as functional bliss, but then no one really mind since they are works of neoclassical art, it favours beauty, and it is just so unlike mass market cars. While the interior is simply gorgeous, driving becomes more theatrical, and at the same time, the attention to detail makes any UX pro go insane. There is no doubt that it is the car that any driver goes bananas for and once you sit in the driver seat there is that feeling that you’re in something special, classy, stylish, sophisticated and upmarket.

What You Should Expect of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage GT Sound Wise

It doesn’t come standards with the Olufsen & Bang mega stereo experience, and you’ll be more than fine with it, as for the engine, expect to be torn. It sounds marvellous, and it is throaty with the perfect amount of rasp. There is no denial to the fact that it’s a great and the most gorgeous in its class, every single angle of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage is just perfect, it feels amazing, looks fantastic and its sound gives you goosebumps.

It is the last of the Aston Martin V8 Vantage range, and fans should enjoy it while they can as it will leave behind a post-Vantage world with so much less style, beauty, less mechanical theatre, less emotion. There are cars like the Viper or Porsche that can probably compete with it but still, there is the “it” factor, and we all know that the Aston Martin has it and the rest can simply not match it.

2015 Peugeot 308 GT and 308 SW GT

2015 Peugeot 308 GT

Closer to the 2015 model year, Peugeot is introducing a warmed-up GT and GT SW model that boasts extra power and sportier looks compared to the standard versions.

2015 Porsche Cayenne

2015 Porsche Cayenne

The new 2015 Porshe Cayenne SUV will hit dealerships on November with a new face, new tail, lightly updated interior and two new powertrains that should serve to separate the truck from the new entry-level Macan SUV.

The 2015 Porsche Cayenne S E-Hybrid is now a plug-in. As before, a 333-hp supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 sits under the hood, but is paired with a now more powerful electric motor for 416 hp combined at 5500 rpm and 435 lb-ft of torque from 1250 to 4000 rpm. Porsche claims the all-electric top speed is 78 mph, but it remains to be seen how easily the powertrain will switch over to gas-engine power.

The 10.8 kWh lithium-ion battery can be plugged in or charged while driving. Our 2011 Cayenne S Hybrid long-termer sprinted to 60 mph in 5.6 seconds; Porsche estimates the new S E-Hybrid will get to 62 mph in 5.4 seconds onto a 151 mph top speed.

Porsche has made big price hikes for the model-year 2015 Cayenne. At least for now, the naturally aspirated V-6 is gone as a base model, leaving the $62,695 Cayenne Diesel (prices include $995 destination) as the least expensive way to step into Porsche’s best-seller, when the Macan simply isn’t big enough…
