Recently, Aston Martin, the British luxury sports car manufacturer, declared that the V12 Vantage S replicas would be introduced in the United States with a manual transmission. They also confirmed that only 100 units would be constructed, but that is an exciting prospect. The United States is also going to get a distinctive validation of the V8 array, combining the low-cost GT model and more costly S variant and combining them into a single trim for the next year, with the name 2017 Aston Martin Vantage GTS. The 2017 model will be available in two trim levels, such as Sport and Lux for both the Coupe and the Roadster body styles. Unfortunately for some, the new Vantage GTS will be constructed exclusively for American buyers.

The Sport model will have some external styling baubles, such as carbon fiber, in addition to the sport suspension as standard, which was offered as an option in the outgoing Vantage. It also comes equipped with textured black exhaust outlets and graphite-finished dive-spoke alloy wheels.
On the other hand, the Lux model of the new GTS does not come with the sport suspension bits. Instead, it comes with luster black external components at the front splitter and back diffuser, and dazzling work at the front grille, hood vent strakes, headlamp surrounds and window surrounds.
The new Aston Martin Vantage GTS 2017 interior will be trimmed with either Argento grey or Obsidian black leather with either Indented leather or Plisse Alcantara detailing. The face of the center stack will be made of carbon fiber, and the gyratory controls will be black.
The cabin of the Lux trim comes equipped with leather seats, even though the color is up to the shopper from a wide color palette. The vehicle will be equipped with satin chrome finished controls with piano black. The model will also come equipped with the upgraded 1000-watt Bang & amp; Olufsen acoustic system as standard.
All trims will be equipped with the newly improved AMi III infotainment and direction-finding system, marking an important step forward from its mostly horrible predecessor.

2017 Aston Martin Vantage GTS Engine
Both trims of the new Vantage GTS will be equipped with the V8 power plant with the capacity of 4.7 liters, which was used to power the outgoing V8 Vantage. The 2017 Aston Martin Vantage GTS engine will be capable of delivering the new GTS with the maximum power of 436 horsepower at 7,300 RPM and the maximum twist of 391 pounds for each foot at 5,000 RPM. These powertrain figures are the same as those of the power and torque offered to the outgoing model. The engine accelerates the new GTS from 0-60 mph in just 4 seconds, which is faster than the performance offered by the outgoing model.
Both models will be offered with an option of a six-velocity manual transmission(see in the gallery) or with seven-speed single-clutch automated manual transmission systems.
Base price and the release date
The release date of the 2017 Aston Martin Vantage GTS is likely to be the at the end part of 2016. As we mentioned before, this beauty will be only for U.S. market, a bit unfair. The new vehicle will be available at a high starting price of $134,000.
