Aston Martin V12 Vantage S

The V12 Vantage was an unprecedented engineering achievement. Combining a V12 engine with Aston Martin’s lightest sports-car in a package of pure aggression.

They could have stopped there, they didn’t. An even lighter chassis, an even more powerful engine, an even more responsive transmission. V12 Vantage S – the most ferocious Aston Martin ever produced.

Breath-taking performance: An advanced engineering story told by monumental numbers. 15kg lighter than V12 Vantage. 573PS of power. 620Nm of peak torque. With enhanced low and mid-range power the new-generation AM28 engine pushes the V12 Vantage S to a top speed of 205mph, creating the fastest series production model they’ve ever made.

Sportshift III: A seven-speed AMT transaxle gearbox was specifically designed to tap the potency of V12 Vantage S. 2017 sees the return of a manual-shift transmission as an option, creating the ultimate analogue experience in a digital world. Seamless gear changes at high engine speeds. Advanced light-touch paddleshifts giving maximum driver control, while the new manual transmission provides maximum engagement between driver, vehicle and road.

A transmission derived from the Vantage GT program brings motorsport engineering and race-car capability to the road.
Agility and Ability: The controlled power of V12 Vantage S comes with revolutionary levels of response to driver input. Three-stage adaptive damping. All new carbon ceramic brakes. A unique track-mode with delayed anti-lock braking technology. This isn’t technology to aid the driver, it’s technology that puts the driver in control.

Extreme performance. Extreme styling. A bold new carbon fiber grill marries design and engineering to improve airflow whilst defining a more aggressive front profile. New roof and rear graphics packs. Lightweight forged alloy wheels. All new interior finishes on seats, doors and controls. Never opulent but always dramatic the V12 Vantage S is tailored for a visceral driving experience.


Taking the digital user experience up a notch, Aston Martin has captured the sounds of each of their models – from revving the motor to driving away. I love this.
