Aston Martin unveils Vantage S

Aston Martin has unveiled its Vantage S, another version of the V8, which comes with even more astounding features for enhanced speed and better response.

The Vantage S, which takes its inspiration from the V12 Vantage supercar, packs in 19-inch alloy wheels and a lower carbonfibre bumper to allow more air intake.

While the exterior is laden with wider wheels and an attractive rear spoiler, the real powerful performance comes from the inside, which is fitted with a 4.7-litre improved V8 engine that can produce 430bhp and 361lb.ft of torque, put comfortably near the back wheels through the seven-speed Sportshift II automatic transmission.

It can also accommodate immediate gear changes with seven short ratios and a paddleshift system, speeding ahead with the click of a Sport button.

Additionally, the Vantage S also allows greater for grip and responses thanks to the improved steering rack and new six-pot front brakes.

The model, which is available for purchase at Aston Martin outlets worldwide, comes with a price tag of £102,500 for the coupe. The Roadster comes in more expensive than its cousin, at £110,700.
