The V12 Vantage was an unprecedented engineering achievement. Combining a V12 engine with Aston Martin's lightest sports-car in a package of pure aggression. They could have stopped there, but they didn’t. An even lighter chassis, an even more powerful engine, an even more responsive transmission. The V12 Vantage S is the most ferocious Aston Martin ever produced.



An advanced engineering story told by monumental numbers. 15kg lighter than V12 Vantage. 573PS of power. 620Nm of peak torque. With enhanced low and mid-range power the new-generation AM28 engine pushes the V12 Vantage S to a top speed of 205mph, creating the fastest series production model Aston Martin has ever made.



Sportshift III, a new seven-speed AMT transaxle gearbox specifically designed to tap the potency of V12 Vantage S. Seamless gear changes at high engine speeds. Advanced light-touch paddleshifts giving maximum driver control as both hands remain on the wheel. A transmission derived from the Vantage GT programme brings motorsport engineering and race-car capability to the road.

The controlled power of V12 Vantage S comes with revolutionary levels of response to driver input. Three-stage adaptive damping. All new carbon ceramic brakes. A unique track-mode with delayed anti-lock braking technology. This isn’t technology to aid the driver, it’s technology that puts the driver in control.

Extreme performance. Extreme styling. A bold new carbon fibre grille marries design and engineering to improve airflow whilst defining a more aggressive front profile. New roof and rear graphics packs. Lightweight forged alloy wheels. All new interior finishes on seats, doors and controls. Never opulent but always dramatic the V12 Vantage S is tailored for a visceral driving experience.
