Having one of the 150 Aston Martin Vantage GT8 may seriously break one's bank account. But who cares? Those who can afford one definitely has no issues with money, whatsoever. The Vantage GT8 is considered more expensive now as compared to when it was new.

The Aston Martin Vantage GT8 is definitely a collector's car. For one, there are only 150 units ever made, giving it unmatched and unbridled exclusivity! This is also considered the lightest and most powerful V-8 Vantage ever made.

H.R. Owen, a luxury dealer group recently has car number 66. It is finished in Onyx Black and receives red inserts on the outside as well as in the cabin. It also has carbon fiber body which is to significantly decrease the weight for better aerodynamics.

It also has hefty optional features such as Aero Pack in Gloss Carbon, premium audio system, and reversing camera. The all-important "Vantage GT8" logo is also embossed into the headrests.

It is powered by a 4.7-liter V-8 engine which is responsible for producing 440-horsepower. The Aston Martin Vantage GT8 can also accelerate from zero to 62 mph in 4.4-seconds with a top speed of 190 mph.

As earlier reported, this beefed up Vantage GT8 is more expensive with an asking price of about $332,796. This is more than $121,000 expensive when sold as brand new. Well, exclusivity and uniqueness definitely come with an insane price tag but the Vantage GT8 took it to another level.

Such price is also worth it as it far from being stock as the options list is quite expensive. The GT8 label is also a contributing factor for its price as it is not a regular V8 Vantage (well, nothing is regular with the V8 Vantage to the strictest sense of the word).

The Aston Martin Vantage GT8 is definitely going to be a big hit to the ultra-rich and powerful car enthusiasts. Because of its rarity, it is expected to be immediately sold as car enthusiasts are highly clamoring to have this for their well-deserved distinction.
