Here comes Aston Martin’s fastest accelerating production car to date next to the limited edition One-77 hypercar -- new V12 Vantage S. The extreme sports car could accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds and from zero to 100 km/h in just 3.9 seconds. The new V12 Vantage S is not only Aston Martin’s fastest accelerating production car, but is also the most potent Vantage in the brand’s 100-year history. The main reason for this performance is the AM28 6.0-litre V12 engine that provides 573 PS for the V12 Vantage S.

Featuring the latest generation engine management, it allows the V12 Vantage S to achieve a top speed of 205 mph, making it the brand’s fastest sports car, with the exemption of the One-77. Complementing this dynamic power is 620 Nm of torque available at 5,750 rpm, with 510 Nm of torque is available at low revolution. Power is transmitted to the rear wheels via the new Sportshift III AMT (automated manual transmission).

The V12 Vantage S is endowed with technology that enables a driver to accurately tune its ride and handling. Through its three-stage adaptive damping -- ‘Normal’, ‘Sport’ and ‘Track’ -- a driver can precisely suit the sports car’s dynamic character and make use of its full potential. Complementing this extended adaptive damping system is a ‘Sport’ mode that could controlled via a button on the centre console.

This mode alters throttle response, gearshift speed and timing, and exhaust note to tune the car to the driver’s liking. The new V12 Vantage S could be availed for a starting price of £138,000 RRP in the United Kingdom; EUR179,950 RRP in Germany; US$184,995 MSRP in the United States; US$230,995 in Dubai; and AU$ 389,300 in Australia. Prices exclude local taxes where applicable.
