V8 VANTAGE S

V8 VANTAGE S

We started with the V8 Vantage, a revered car and an iconic part of the Aston Martin model range. But we knew we could produce an even more sporting, even more agile V8 Vantage. A car which took directly from our GT4 race programme. Our designers and engineers worked to produce a car not to replace V8 Vantage but to complement it, a unique package of intense driver involvement.

V8 Vantage S - A Sporting Dream

Sculpted for Speed

We started with the V8 Vantage, a revered car and an iconic part of the Aston Martin model range. But we knew we could produce an even more sporting, even more agile V8 Vantage. A car which took directly from our GT4 race programme. Our designers and engineers worked to produce a car not to replace V8 Vantage but to complement it, a unique package of intense driver involvement.

V8 Vantage S a lesson in race-bred dynamism.

Increased Intensity

Using the same advanced 4.7ltr engine found in V8 Vantage we specifically retuned the unit to develop an additional 10bhp and a further 20Nm of torque. Weve produced the most intense driving experience for V8 Vantage weve ever created.

Race Bred Looks

Maintaining the classic Vantage exterior, V8 Vantage S introduces new track inspired design features. A new lower front bumper is finished in perfectly-aligned carbon fibre. Revised side sills optically widen the car. The rear splitter combined with the extended deck lid flip produce a more aggressive rear profile. New 19 inch V spoke wheel styles are available as standard, with an optional 10-spoke lightweight forged wheel.

Introducing Sportshift II

At the core of V8 Vantage S is the new seven speed Sportshift II automated manual transmission, delivers exceedingly rapid gear changes, twenty per cent quicker than Sportshift. An extra gear permits shorter well-spaced ratios taking advantage of the optimum torque, combined with a final drive ratio of 4.182:1 delivers quicker acceleration. Sportshift II allows the driver to take an increased level of control, modulating the throttle pedal to achieve the desired type of gear change.

Sumptuous Style

V8 Vantage S uses the same level of material artistry found across our GT model range but with unique interior styling features. Race track inspired stitching on the most supple semi-aniline leather provides distinctive visual contrast whilst authentic metal and wood finishes, such as a Piano Black facia ensure V8 Vantage S is never opulent, but always crafted from the finest materials.
