AutoExpress magazine has confirmed the soft-top version of Aston's slinky V8 Vantage will arrive in 2007, likely as a 2008 model, according to PistonHeads (just call us third-hand Rosie). The company's entry-level Volante, which will be powered by the same 380hp 4.3-liter V8 as the coupe, has been trademarked, and will sell for around $150,000, or an approximately $10,000 premium over the closed-topper.
