Phew, the word is out: this is the new V12 Vantage S! The V12 S in short: 573 hp, 620 Nm of torque and a top speed of 330 km/h (205 mph). I already had the privilege of seeing this car ten days ago, in a Private Viewing at Aston Martin’s Nürburgring Test Center. But no camera’s were permitted, neither was I allowed to disclose any details before today. But today has finally arrived, so here it is!
On Friday last week, Aston Martin released this teaser video, just saying “Coming Soon…”. The video doesn’t show much, but we can clearly see a bonnet with V12 Vantage style carbon fibre vents, Vantage-style headlights, Vantage-style carbon fibre side strakes and the contours of a car in side-view which confirms this is something Vantage-based. Could this be the reason the V12 Vantage was discontinued a few weeks ago? We’ll know soon enough, maybe even later this week! Stay tuned. Watch the teaser video here. What do you think this is?
