Aston Martin are spoiling us lately. Celebrating 100 years, the British brand have been churning out some special machines over the past few months. Special edition cars, one off concept racers and now something that is a real stroke of genius. The Aston Martin V12 Vantage is an astonishing car! It is powerful, beautiful and a true embodiment of what a British sports car of the modern day should be. Now it gets even better.
First shown in a teaser video, we played Sherlock Holmes and deduced that this was coming… The Aston Martin V12 Vantage S, a more performance focused variation of the coupe. Now producing 565BHP and capable of a top speed pegged at 205MPH, this muscular machine is the fastest full production car Aston has ever made. 0-60MPH is dispatched in under 4 seconds. The car has three distinct modes: normal, sport and track that alters the cars demeanour accordingly. New design features such as a grill inspired by the CC100 Concept finds a home on the V12 Vantage S and is set to become a permanent design feature on future models.
Deliveries will begin at the end of 2013.
