Aston Martin has announced a short run of V12 Vantage S models would come to the US with a manual. Only 100 will be built. The US will also get a unique set of the V8 lineup, increasing the low-price GT and more expensive S versions...and then consolidating them into one trim: the GTS, which will be available in fixed and convertible versions.
Both will be available with the 4.7-liter V8 in the existing V8 Vantage, and both will offer a choice of a six-speed manual or 7-speed single-clutch automated manual.
The GTS should start around $134,000.
