$100K Aston Martin Not Fit for U.S. Roads (Maybe)

July 17 (Bloomberg) –- Aston Martin has dropped the price of its 2015 Vantage GT to a $99,900 -- an entry-level price for the exclusive car maker. But the Vantage GT may not be available in the United States for long because the car doesn’t meet U.S. crash standards. Aston Martin is now asking to be exempt from the rules on the basis of “substantial economic hardship.” The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has until September to decide whether to allow the company to continue selling the car. Is it worth grabbing one while you still can? Bloomberg's Matt Miller reports. (Source: Bloomberg)
