Aston Martin's most extreme sports car, the new V12 Vantage S, is the brand's
fastest accelerating production car to date (not counting the limited edition,
and sold-out, One-77 hypercar).
Taking just 3.7 seconds to sprint from 0-60 mph (3.8 seconds 0-100 km/h) the sports car underlines its position as not only the brand's fastest accelerating production car, but also the most potent Vantage in Aston Martin's glittering 100-year history.
Equipped with the new 565-hp AM28 6.0-liter V12 engine, featuring latest generation engine management, the car is capable of reaching 205 mph making it, also, the fastest sports car to wear the iconic Aston Martin wings - One-77 excepted.
With 457 lb-ft (620 Nm) of torque available at 5,750 rpm the V12 Vantage S is as flexible as it is powerful.
As might be expected of such a potent machine, race car technology features throughout the V12 Vantage S. Aside from significant development time spent lapping the 'green hell' of Germany's infamous Nürburgring to hone its dynamic capabilities and, of course, that motorsport-derived paddle shift gearbox, the new car includes such track-inspired components as CNC machined combustion chambers and hollow cam shafts.
