Aston Martin has launched today the V12 Vantage S which is motivated by a 6.0-liter engine producing 573 HP (421 kW) and a maximum torque of 457 lb-ft (620 Nm). The powerful mill is linked to a 7-speed automated manual Sportshift III AMT gearbox which enables the British supercar to hit a top speed of 205 mph (330 km/h), thus making it the fastest model Aston Martin has ever made, not taking into consideration the One-77 which was a limited production model. The V12 Vantage S weighs 3,670 lbs (1,665 kg) and has been equipped with a Bilstein 3-stage adaptive damping system.
Brembo was responsible for providing the car’s braking system which consists of One-77-derived carbon-ceramic disc brakes. AM says the Continental-developed two-stage Dynamic Stability Control system can be deactivated by the driver. The V12 Vantage S rolls on bespoke lightweight alloy wheels featuring a ten-spoke design and are wrapped around in Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires.
Deliveries will kick off before the end of 2013 at a yet undisclosed price tag.
