Aston Martin Cambridge created a special-edition Vantage to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the Spitfire fighter plane.
Aston Martin V12 Vantage S
The Aston Martin V12 Vantage S is a monster of a sports coupe. At the front, those color-matched fangs and open mouth look like Dracula ready to take a bite. And underneath the hood, the 6.0-liter V12 sounds like the Wolf Man growling whenever the driver gets on the throttle. In a recent video, XCAR got its hands on this wonderful behemoth and showed its brilliant brutality.
In 2012 at the Geneva Motor Show, Aston Martin brought along a Virage Volante that had been fully decked-out by its then-new Q extravagant customization team. Q, in addition to offering a limitless world of options to dandy car-shoppers, seemed then to tacitly offer a slightly stronger connection with everyone's favorite super-spy, James Bond.
With the recent increase in higher-performance versions of already high-performance vehicles, like Mercedes-Benz and its AMG Black Series, the public is now gaining even greater access to speed and maneuverability. Two of the most recent sports cars to get their wicks turned up include the Jaguar XKR-S GT and the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S.
Aston Martin unveiled its new V12 Vantage S last month, and while the Gaydon firm dumped on us a lot of knowledge about its updated 12-cylinder sports car at the time, a couple key specs were left out: price and the quickness. Aston Martin corrected those omissions today, announcing that the V12 Vantage S will accelerate to 60 miles per hour in just 3.7 seconds and arrive in US dealerships early next year with a starting price of $184,995.
