The V8 engine proved to be a reliable and robust unit, and it was obvious to all concerned that there was ample scope for a significant increase in the power that it could deliver.

The Aston Martin V8 Vantage was announced on 18th February 1977. Revised camshafts, air-box, larger inlet valves and carburettors, new inlet manifolds and different plugs, claimed to provide an increase in power of 40% and 10% more torque. The same ZF manual gearbox as in the V8 Saloon was standard equipment. This was enough to give a top speed of about 170 mph and acceleration from 0-60 mph in 5.2 secs.
