text size: A- A+
Powered by the company's familiar 6.0-liter V12 engine, the new Vantage S comes with 565 horsepower and 644 Nm (457 lb-ft) of torque. The output enables the vehicle to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 330 km/h (205 mph), which makes it the fastest Aston Martin currently on offer.
The mill is mated to a Sportshift III AMT, operated via two carbon fiber padels located behind the steering wheel. The V12 Vantage S also features adaptive dampers with three settings - Normal, Sport and Track - that change the sound of the exhaust, the responsiveness of the engine and the sharpness of the steering.
The sportscar is on sale from £138,000 in the United Kingdom, €179,950 in Germany, and $184,995 in the United States.
