FrontRunners: Compact Flash

Fitted with the same 6-liter V-12 engine that powers Aston Martin’s larger, more expensive cars, the 2011 Aston Martin V12 Vantage (www.astonmartin.com) produces 510 bhp and 420 ft lbs of torque while handling with more agility and precision than any Aston Martin before it. The $180,000 car moves from zero to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds and can achieve a top speed of 190 mph. Aston Martin is offering the V12 only with a 6-speed manual transmission; deliveries will begin in the fall.
