Aston Martin V12 Vantage S is How The Brits Do Crazy [w/video]
Next-level bonkers. That's the only way to describe the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S. The UK supercar maker has its own phrasing, like "the most extreme sportscar in its 100 year history." However, even that bit of hyperbole is not enough to fully convey what is going on here. Aston Martin threw the most potent version of its big-boy V12 powertrain into its little-guy Vantage, and the world is better for it. With 565 horsepower out of the 6.0-liter V12, you know that the Vantage S is going to move. How about 0-60 in under four seconds and a top speed of 205 mph? Yup, that will do just fine. We could talk more about it, or you could watch the trailer for the debut of the new V12 beast.
That sound? That's care of the exhaust system, borrowed from the One-77 supercar. Fitting, because the range-topping One-77 is the only Aston Martin faster than the V12 Vantage S.
