The Aston Martin V8 Vantage is one of those cool cars that people don’t know a lot about. It comes from a small car manufacturer, so they don’t have the means to make some of the small parts. Little did you know they didn’t make A LOT of the parts, almost everything was outsourced. They used parts from Volvo, Ford, BMW, and Jaguar that probably helps keep the price down a bit. This also makes replacing parts is a lot easier, instead of going through a small manufacturer like Auston Martin to get things you can go to companies like Ford or Volvo to get simple parts.
