T he was an Aston Martin V12 Vantage so far not a weak candidate with its 517 hp six-liter V12 engine. Now the British are raising the AM28 engine to a new level of performance, which is already used in the Rapide S. After the revision, the V12 not only carries 15 kilograms less weight on the ribs and adjustable camshafts in the cylinder head, but also powers with 573 hp and 620 Nm in the future.

The increase in torque should be noticeable over the entire speed range. 70 additional Nm are available from 1,000 rpm. The Aston Martin V12 Vantage S also converts the 11% increase in output into a higher top speed. 330 km /h should make it the fastest production Aston Martin of all time.

Aston Martin V12 Vantage S with seven gears

The automated seven-speed is also new in the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S -Gearbox, which the British have christened Sportshift III. Shifts are made using the paddle on the steering wheel. The adaptive damper system in the chassis now works together with a carbon-ceramic brake system, which can be operated without ABS for the racetrack. The radiator grille is now made of carbon and is intended to further optimize the supply of cooling air. Optionally, the window frames can now be ordered in black, the exterior mirrors and taillights can be finished with carbon fiber and the roof can be painted in a contrasting color.

In the interior, new materials should make the Vantage even more valuable and at the same time lower the weight. Prices for the new Aston Martin V12 Vantage S have not yet been announced.
