If you are currently looking for the best driver’s car money can buy, a track-tuned lightweight Aston Martin Vantage GT8 needs to be on your list of contenders.
And of course, it goes without saying that, and one of the things that makes this vehicle so special is that you can skip the seven-speed Sportshift II automatic and go with the six-speed manual gearbox.
Such is the case here where the Aston Martin Vantage GT8 is looking to capture Britain’s Best Driver’s Car crown offered by the Autocar. In order to do so, it first has to overcome the likes of the 911 R, Honda’s NSX, the McLaren 675LT, Porsche 718 Cayman S, BMW M2, Nissan GT-R, Focus RS, M4 GTS and last year’s champ, the Ferrari 488 GTB.
Safe to say, the Aston Martin Vantage GT8’s 446 PS naturally aspirated 4.7-liter V8 sounds absolutely insane on the track, across its entire rev range. Well, it may even help you forget about the 4.4-second 0-62 mph sprint time, which is good but not great.
Its top speed however is the healthy 190 mph, which should place it somewhere near the middle of the pack, in regard to the rest of these vehicles.
