Driving the Aston Martin V8 Vantage '77 on FM4

I am driving the 1977 Aston Martin V8 Vantage at the Top Gear Test Track on Forza Motorsport 4. This car was dubbed as the first supercar made in Great Britain thanks to its top speed of 170mph. The titular V8 engine though, it was derived from the Lagonda but with added camshafts, compression ratio, big inlets, and huge carburettors on it. For starters, this 5.3L V8 engine generates about 394HP of power and it can do 0-60mph in 5.4 seconds. On the outside, it comes with a blanked bonnet vent and a separate rear spoiler. The Oscar India variant from 1978 comes with an integrated tea-tray spoiler and smoother bonnet bulge while the inside comes with the black leather-covered dash. Power of the engine was increased to 390HP of power. For the 1986 model year, engine power's upgraded to 405HP. This car was featured in the James Bond movie, The Living Daylights, starring Timothy Dalton as James Bond. On that film, it comes with Bond gadgets developed specifically for this car such as tire spikes, jet engine at the back of the license plate, retractable outriggers, missles, lasers, bulletproof windows, fireproof exterior, and a feature that allows this car to self-destruct. Production ended in 1989, with a total of 534 units built; 342 were the hardtop model while 192 were the Volante convertible. This was replaced by the Virage. James May drove this one on Top Gear Season 3 Episode 6. Talk about being in your element! NO COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT INTENDED!
