The sum of all of these features lead to a 0-60 mile per hour time in an estimated 3.5 seconds, with a top speed over 200 miles per hour.  The chassis can now reach its’ full potential with a full round of upgrades.  Speed, power, style, and noise are all combined in this well-sorted package.  The Aston Martin V8 Vantage has some stiff competition.  It can be ordered ahead of the Geneva Auto Show, with delivery planned during the summer of 2016.
