Aston Martin has just pulled the wraps off the V12 Vantage S, the official replacement for the outgoing V12 Vantage.
The brand new Aston Martin V12 Vantage S is the world’s faster road-going Aston Martin model ever offered, with the exception of the One-77 hypercar, and the model has race derived technology, developed by transmission experts Oerlinkon Graziano, which was used in the Vantage GT3, GT3 and GTE race cars. The model features new lightweight forged alloy wheels, a graphics package, carbon fiber seat options, revised stitching and some other tweaks. Two leather grade options are available for the model, the Luxmill and semi-aniline, plus the Alcantara.
The Aston Martin V12 Vantage S is powered by a 6.0 liter V12 AM28 engine, which is producing a total output of 423 kW and it has a peak torque of 620 Nm, available at 5,750 rpm. The figures have went up from 380 kW and 570 Nm, and at 1,000 rpm, the torque rises from 440 Nm to 510 Nm. This is enough for a 0 to 100 km/h sprint of 4.2 seconds, with a claimed top speed of 330 km/h. The engine is mated to a new seven-speed Sportshift-III hydraulically actuated automated manual transmission with paddle shifters, which is replacing the six-speed manual.
The new supercar is 4,385 mm long, 2,022 mm wide and 1,250 mm tall, riding on a 2,600 mm long wheelbase and weighing 1,665 kg. Fuel tank capacity stands at 80 liters. The Aston Martin V12 Vantage S has a two-door coupe body style and it’s getting halogen projector headlamps, high intensity discharge headlights, black headlamp bezels, LED taillights, carbon fiber splitter and rear diffuser and much more.
