V12 Vantage S Roadster-Pure Sports

The V12 Vantage was an unprecedented engineering achievement. Combining a V12 engine with our lightest sports-car in a package of pure aggression.

We could have stopped there, we didn’t. An even lighter chassis, an even more powerful engine, an even more responsive transmission. V12 Vantage S – the most ferocious Aston Martin ever produced.


V12 Vantage S offers the greatest range of exterior options ever created for Vantage. An optional carbon pack layers wing mirrors, rear lamp infills and side-strakes with a symmetrically woven carbon-fibre finish. Roof and rear panel graphics packs - painted by hand - can contrast or complement the body colour. An all new black finish for side window surround offers further customisation.

An all new carbon fibre grille creates a bold new front profile. Inspired by the Vantage GT race programme the classic Aston Martin shape remains, with optional black or titanium mesh creating distinctive appearances. Inspired by the CC100 Speedster concept unveiled at the 2013 Nurburgring 24hr race, the grille outline and struts can also be painted.

Classically Aston Martin, yet all-new – our world leading design team delivered again.

Breath-Taking Performance

An advanced engineering story told by monumental numbers. 15kg lighter than V12 Vantage. 571PS of power. 620Nm of peak torque. With enhanced low and mid-range power the new-generation AM28 engine pushes the V12 Vantage S to a top speed of 205mph, creating the fastest series production model we’ve ever made.

The latest generation of V12 engine roars to life with exceptional figures. Capable of reaching 205mph, engine torque improves throughout the rev range. With 620 Nm available at 5,750 rpm – up from 570 Nm previously – the V12 Vantage S powers to new performance heights.

Engineered to exploit the ferocious potential of the AM28 V12 engine, the new Sportshift III hydraulically actuated automated manual transmission provides motorsport-style paddle shift changes. Race-derived & motorsport proven technology ensures V12 Vantage S delivers great driver control and razor-sharp gear changes.

Dramatic Interior Design

Never opulent but always dramatic, V12 Vantage S introduces all-new interior design options. Lightweight or sports seats with new trim layout complement a revised door design to provide distinct colour contrasts. An optional carbon fibre pack lays the finest symmetrical carbon weave on both facia and door pulls. Exquisite detailing even goes down to the pedals with a stunning optional black finish.

Two seat designs - Sports or Lightweight - a choice of Luxmill or semi-aniline leather, plus Alcantara and a dramatic range of panel, stitch and stripe designs for seats and door panels.
