Aston Martin V12 Vantage S officially the fastest Aston on sale

Aston Martin has revealed the official specifications and performance figures of the new V12 Vantage S. The striking coupe becomes the company’s quickest accelerating production model.

Using the latest tune of the traditional 5.9-litre V12 engine, producing 421kW and 620Nm, the engine is able to propel the V12 Vantage S from 0-100km/h in just 3.9 seconds.

Considering the same engine also powers the larger and heavier Vanquish, it’s no wonder such performance is possible. The top speed is also mind-blowing, capable of 330km/h.

These figures make it the company’s fastest and quickest production vehicle. Although the One-77 offers better performance, it is no longer in production. Dr Ulrich Bez, Aston Martin CEO, spoke about the model, saying,

“The new V12 Vantage S brings our winning GT3 race formula to the road. It’s a car for those customers who want superior sporting performance in a ‘gentleman’s suit’. It’s the most pure, yet understated, driving machine we can imagine today.”

The epic new model is on sale in Australia, with prices starting at $389,300.
