On 28th May 2013, Aston Martin announced the V12 Vantage S, a sportier version of the V12 Vantage that preceded it. The V12 Vantage S produces 565bhp and 457lb⋅ft of torque from a revised 5.9 litre V12 engine called the AM28, which would be used as a base for future engines. The power is transferred to the rear wheels using a new seven-speed Sportshift III automated manual transmission. The V12 Vantage S was lighter than the standard V12 Vantage and features new three-stage adaptive damping for the suspension system, new carbon-ceramic brakes, and a unique track-mode for improved performance. Claimed to be able to accelerate from 0-62mph in 3.9 seconds and reach a top speed of 205mph, making it the fastest production Aston Martin at the time alongside the One-77. The exhaust on the V12 Vantage S was also developed from the company's own One-77. Styling and aerodynamic changes include a carbon fibre front grille, black roof and rear grille and lightweight forged alloy wheels.
This example of the stunning and ferociously quick Aston Martin V12 S is presented in Onyx Black with black over red stitched trim. First registered on 29th January 2014 with a list price of £138,000, this example has covered a mere 34,005 miles from new. The car was serviced with Aston Martin on four occasions in 2015, 2016,2017 and 2020 and has an MoT test certificate valid until July 2023. These V12 Vantages are incredibly well-honed performance cars with the V12 Vantage already a handful, but this V12 S model has an extra 55bhp from its 6.0 litre engine, taking the total to 565bhp. With the fantastic V12 engine these are genuine modern classics and tucking them away in a collection maybe as desirable as driving it!
