In a world increasingly constrained by convention the V12 Vantage S is a magnificent maverick: the realisation of a compelling dream in which we endowed our compact, iconic sports car with epic V12 power.
The V12 Vantage S has taken a scorching recipe and turned up the heat to become faster, sharper, more aggressive. Capable of 205 mph it is the fastest series production Aston Martin ever.
Mating the most powerful derivative of AM28 V12 engine to a new seven-speed Sportshift III Automated Sequential Manual (ASM) transmission, we have created a Vantage of unprecedented ferocity.
V12 Vantage S packs a distinctive visual punch. A bold new Carbon-Fibre front grille, honed to optimise the car's aerodynamic balance and increase cooling airflow to the engine marries design and engineering.
Two new alloy wheel finishes, both using a new lightweight ten-spoke design show the calliper and brake disc beneath. Forged rather than cast, this unique structure is one of the lightest wheels we've ever created.
An optional carbon pack changes wing mirrors, rear lamp infills and side-strakes to carbon fibre. Roof and rear panel graphics packs, painted by hand, and all new black window surround can contrast or complement.
AM28, our latest generation of V12 engine roars to life with exceptional figures. Capable of reaching
205mph, engine torque improves throughout the rev range. With 620 Nm available at 5,750 rpm – up from
570 Nm previously – the V12 Vantage S powers to new performance heights.
Engineered to exploit the ferocious potential of the AM28 V12 engine, the new Sportshift III hydraulically actuated automated manual transmission provides motorsport-style paddle shift changes. Race-derived & motorsport proven technology ensures V12 Vantage S delivers great driver control and razor-sharp gear changes.
V12 Vantage S is unashamedly focussed on driving thrills, but it doesn't compromise on driver comfort. Being an Aston Martin this means an interior boasting quality, style and craftsmanship of the highest order.
Two seat designs - Sports or Lightweight - a choice of Luxmill or semi-aniline leather, plus Alcantara and a dramatic range of panel, stitch and stripe designs for seats and door panels.
A new Carbon-fibre interior pack layers the finest symmetrical weave on both facia and door pulls creating a tactile and dynamic interior environment for driver and passenger.
