Adopting the styling from the Vantage S, the entry level model features a new lower front bumper design with air splitter, redesigned side-sills and a new rear bumper equipped with an integrated diffuser. Performance updates also taken from the Vantage S include quicker steering, bigger brakes and wider tires.

Powering the 2012 V8 Vantage is a 4.7-liter V-8 engine putting out the same output of 420bhp ( 426 PS / 313 kW ) compared to the Vantage S output of 430bhp (436 PS / 321 kW) and 490 Nm (361 lb-ft) of torque.

A six-speed manual transmission comes as standard, but the optional six-speed Sportshift automated manual transmission has been replaced with the seven-speed Sportshift II.
