Aston Reveals Acceleration and Price for New V12 Vantage S

Here's something we need expected: The Vantage is a sportscar from the old guard, a bit like the Lotus Elise. It's small and beautiful, yet that's not the full range of its skills. A new V12 model was shown last month and now Aston brought the full details. According to them, the V12 Vantage S is the fastest car they make with the exception of the One-77.

Thanks to an updated V12 engine, the S puts out 573 PS (565 bhp) and 620 Nm of torque. Because the chassis is smaller, this allows the car to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds, faster than the Vanquish. For those European metric fans, 0 to 100 km/h takes 3.9 seconds.

Annoyingly, the V12 Vantage S is also much cheaper than the all-carbon Vanquish at just £138,000 RRP in UK. OK, that's still a lot of money, but it's sort of Porsche 911 Turbo territory.

Aston Martin CEO Dr Ulrich Bez said: “The new V12 Vantage S brings our winning GT3 race formula to the road. It’s a car for those customers who want superior sporting performance in a ‘gentleman’s suit’. It’s the most pure, yet understated, driving machine we can imagine today.”

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
