V12 Vantage S
The very essence of Aston Martin is something you feel each time you catch a glimpse of one of our sports cars. It sweeps over you on every unforgettable drive. Powerful, exhilarating and precise yet timelessly elegant and sophisticated, our cars blend iconic design, exceptional engineering and unrivalled craftsmanship to create an irresistible, emotional experience.
Power and Control
By combining the compact agility of the Vantage chassis with the scintillating response of our legendary 6.0-litre V12 engine, a sports car of outrageous ability has emerged. The V12 Vantage S is shot-through with aggression yet blessed with delectable poise and balance. It is a completely immersive experience. Performance is startling – 205 mph potential and 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds – but it is the control placed in the hands of the driver that makes the V12 Vantage S a rewarding drivers’ car. The seven-speed Sportshift III paddle shift transmission gives instant access to that astonishing 565 bhp engine, three-stage adjustable dampers help prime the car for any road or mood and carbon-ceramic brakes ensure that the V12 Vantage S offers absolute consistency and assurance even at its limits. Available as a Coupe or Roadster this extraordinary car is uniquely visceral and endlessly addictive
In the transformation from V8 to V12 power, the engineers and designers at Aston Martin forensically examined and enhanced every area of the car, from suspension and brakes to aerodynamics, cooling and lightweight carbon fiber components. The result remains unmistakably Vantage but pulled and slashed into an exaggerated form with intense visual impact. The bold carbon fiber grille and dramatically louvred bonnet create an aggressive face, but are also functional – channeling more air into the engine bay to cool the V12. Lightweight forged alloy wheels and carbon ceramic brakes reduce unsprung mass to enhance agility whilst simultaneously improving the car’s on-track capability. Inside, the V12 Vantage S possesses effortless elegance and utilizes lightweight materials wherever possible to capture the essence of the racetrack. The Alcantara® - trimmed steering wheel and carbon fiber gearshift paddles (optional) are a tactile reminder of this car’s focus and there are a whole range of bespoke panel stitch and stripe designs to further intensify this car’s drama
