2007 Aston Martin V8 Vantage updates

Aston Martin has some minor updates planned for the 2007 model year for both the V8 Vantage and the DB9. This is a list of changes for the V8 Vantage though many of these (but not all) will also be present on the DB9:

2007 MY V8 changes:

New seats

Full Leather (standard)

3-position Memory Seats (optional)

Two-stage seat heating (optional as part of heated seat option)

Twin Lumbar support adjustment (standard)

High level electric seat release (standard) (button moves seat forward for access to area behind seat)

Occupant Classification Sensing for passenger airbag (standard)

“Head Thorax” side airbag (standard)

Non-standard leather colors (allows picking/paying for infinite leather)

Antracite finish on 19″ wheels (optional) (looks very techy/cool to me – will depend on car color selected…)

Sports tyres (Pirelli P-Zero Corsa) (optional w/19″ rims) (much lower wear rating, not as good in the wet, but will be the ultimate “handling” tire)

Front Stone Guards (optional)

LEDs in door handle cuts (cool!) (standard)

Key fob boot release (standard) (first push unlocks boot, second push “pops” it…)

Auto-Dimming mirror w/3-position garage door opener (optional)

Revised battery disconnect (battery reconnects when key is put in ignition, rather than having to push the button in the rear)


John has some pictures and additional details on his blog. These improvements result in a 3% increase in base price.

There is also a convertible version planned and AutoExpress has the scoop:
