V8 Vantage S-Race-Bred Dynamism

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.


Started With Purity

The exhilarating driving experience is reflected in unique styling with carbon fibre detailing. Sculptural side sills optically widen the car and produce an aggressive rear profile. The lower front splitter and rear diffuser in exposed carbon fibre add to the visual tension.

How to create a more sporting, more aggressive V8 Vantage? Our designers wanted to maintain the classic Vantage shape but add presence and assertion, stronger visuals with clear purpose. With inspiration from our class-leading GT race programme our world-leading design team created a car which stayed pure to the Vantage ethos but exposed exquisite sporting styling and details.

A lower front bumper finished in perfectly-aligned carbon fibre houses a larger air intake feeding the engine and front brakes. A rear splitter combines with the extended deck lid ‘flip’ work in harmony to provide increased down force at speed and give a dynamic rear profile. Side sills taken from the V12 Vantage optically widen the car and ‘plant’ it on the road.

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. We’ve produced the most intense driving experience for V8 Vantage ever created.

Specifically tuned to create the right blend of power and performance the 4.7ltr V8 engine that sits at the heart of V8 Vantage S is the most potent V8 unit we’ve ever made. Assembled by hand at our bespoke Cologne facility, V8 Vantage S enhances the stunning figures produced by V8 Vantage.

Peak power of 436PS. Maximum torque of 490Nm. Top speed of 190mph. A 0-60mph sprint time of just 4.8secs. V8 Vantage S is an intense and dynamic driving experience.

Material Artistry

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 leathers provide distinctive visual contrast whilst authentic metal and wood finishes ensures V8 Vantage S is always crafted from the finest materials.

Authentic materials are crafted by experts to create a cockpit of the finest quality, but not one of distraction. Unique V8 Vantage S styling features include race-track style stitching, a distinctive lightweight seat design and stitched door-card panels. With thousands of possible colour and material combinations V8 Vantage S can be uniquely personalised to exacting standards.
