Aston Martin Badge in bronze

The Aston Martin V8 Vantage is undoubtedly one of the best manual Aston Martins that has been produced in the last 15-20 years. With that in mind, we thought we could do better.

From: £60,000.00

A limited run of special edition Aston Martin V8 Vantage, developed by the team at Challenge the road. We have optimised the Vantage to be the ultimate road car from the Aston Martin platform.


We find a secondhand Aston Vantage and then the process begins with a timescale of around 4 months for build.


We use a peel-able paint which keeps the underlining paint in perfect condition, but give you an exceptional paint finish.



We cannot deny how great a job Aston Martin has done on the V8 Vantage. So we kept it as stock as possible. Except for the subtle aero tweaks, styling, suspension, and CTR branding. This gives the Aston Vantage truly stunning stance.



The 4.3-litre (4,280 cc) quad-cam 32-valve V8 which did produce 380 bhp (283 kW; 385 PS) now produces over 400 bhp and a weight reduction of 175 lb from factory.

Performance Air Filter and exhaust added to give the CTR Vantage a distinctive V8 sound.



The original seats needed to go, so with our custom built Light weight seats from Cobra, you will feel super comfortable, whether on a Touring Trip or on the track. The suspension is built for Road use but has 24 way adjustment on damping. Although the current setting are absolutely perfect for the road after 12. months development. 



No one can question that the V8 Vantage has the DNA of the ultimate driver's car. We only enhanced it. We have done this, by giving the exhaust a better note from standard and improving the handling on the road.

Purchase Donor Vehicle

Step 1

The first thing we do once we have your order is to obtain the donor vehicle.

We heavily vet all our donor vehicles and obtain the very best available Aston Martin Vantage V8.

Once obtained, we provide you the details including the age, mileage, and original features of the vehicle.

Complete Performance Upgrades

Step 2

The next stage is adding the performance upgrades to the vehicle.

The upgrades are based on what package you choose on purchase, 
Performance, or Touring. The Performance pack is focused on getting the most out of the vehicle on track, whereas the Touring pack is for those long drives.

This stage of development is really what Challenge the road is about and getting the most out of the vehicle. And will give the vehicle our trademark performance and stance.

Complete Internal Upgrades

Step 3

This stage is all about the interior. Again, based on your purchase this will entail making the cockpit fit the function of the performance of your vehicle.

If you are going for a track-focused vehicle, then with the lightweight cobra seats, there is a lot of weight to shed.

For all you Tourers, then it's more about keeping those creature comforts like heated seats and custom exhaust value button.

One thing that is a must, is the Apple Car Play upgrade to make sure you can listen to your awesome music.


Step 4

Now here is the fun part...

Respraying the vehicle in your own custom colour, really makes it like buying a brand new car.

Using our very experienced respray company we will have your vehicle looking like a unicorn car.

Finishing Touches

Step 5

Once all the additions have been completed, the last steps are the finishing touches.

This will include a full service and road test, badges and accessories fitted, a full clean and polish ready for delivery.


Step 6

Once everything has been completed, the vehicle will get one last inspection by Richard before delivery is arranged.

We use only the best vehicle transport company and they will liaise the final delivery of your brand new CTR Vantage.
