Happy Tax Day: Aston Martins are Now Under $100k

Aston Martin, of course, has always been one of the more expensive cars you can purchase, owing largely to its self-evident beauty and the ability to get you from point A to point B in style, in comfort, and in quickness. Now, however, they're joining the ranks of the five digit club, with the sub-$100k V8 Vantage GT.

The V8 Vantage is not, in and of itself, a new car, so what do you get for a hundred grand? Starting on the outside, there's a visual package that more or less mimics the liveries of the cars Aston Martin races internationally. The front grill, mirrors, rear diffuser, and the roofline are all painted in stark contrast to the car's base color, of which you get five options.

You get two options for the interior: dark or light. Whichever you choose, there's plenty of Alcantara and carbon fiber trim to go around.

Of course, you won't be paying attention to what color your seats are, because you can get this with a manual gearbox. Mated to Aston's 430 hp V8, it's all the entertainment you'll ever need.
