We’d like to introduce you to Aston Martin’s rather tasty new V12 Vantage S. It has been produced alongside a host of other Aston’s to celebrate the firm’s centenary this year.

Aston Martin V12 Vantage S

This new release is not just an aesthetic facelift from the old V12 Vantage, as alongside the remodelling the Vantage S boasts a new 5.9 litre V12 which has come from the Vanquish, a new adaptive suspension system with three different settings, as well as a reworked exhaust system giving the V12 a louder and more vivid grumble. You can expect the usual carbon-ceramic brakes to keep all that power under some control and the Vantage S even comes with a Sport button that changes the throttle response, shift time and even the note of the engine!

The bodywork shows off some delectable carbon-fibre intakes on the hood, a new front splitter, rear diffuser and curvaceous lip on the boot lid finishing off a rear end Kylie Minogue would be proud of.

Performance wise, with the weight saving tactics which have been employed through the use of a more lightweight paddle-shift gearbox and lighter rims the new Vantage S is capable of producing 565bhp and achieving a pretty impressive top speed of 205mph.

The Aston Martin V12 Vantage S will go on sale later this year and should cost in the region of £150,000. We’re just going to check our piggy bank.
