The news from Gaydon keeps on coming. Hot on the heels of the V12 Vantage S and Vantage GT8, which we reported on earlier, is yet another Vantage variant, the GTS. The model sure won’t go without a fight!

Aston Martin has consolidated the GT and S into one trim just for the US market and the newbie will be available in both hardtop and convertible body styles. The GTS will pack the same 4.7-litre V8 found in the existing V8 Vantage mated to either a six-speed manual or seven-speed single-clutch automatic.

Two trims will be offered; the Sport variant will have a carbon fibre aero package and a sport suspension (you had to order that as an option for the Vantage back in the day) with a cabin trimmed in black or grey leather, and lots of Alcantara details.

The Lux version won’t have a sport suspension but will feature gloss black exterior trim such as the front splitter and rear diffuser with chrome trim for the grille, headlight surrounds and bonnet vents. The seats can be had in whatever colour you wish thanks to Aston’s “extensive colour palette” while the switch gear will be finished in satin and piano black. The optional Bang & Olufsen audio system will come as standard.
