The Vantage range has always prided itself on combining exceptional engineering and design to create an unrivalled ‘race car’ driving sensation. The V12 Vantage S Roadster provides our most dynamic model with the ability to drop the roof and bask in the visceral sound of the naturally aspirated 6.0 V12 engine.
Beauty meets function
Sleek engineering with striking lines and subtle menace; the body of the V12 Vantage S is instantly recognisable as an Aston Martin. When the roof is up, the three layers of lightweight materials will reduce wind noise and maintain cabin temperature. When you need it down, it will take only 14 seconds to open. Thanks to a compact tonneau cover, the famous Vantage silhouette is sustained with the added flow of the defining speed humps.
The prominent carbon-fibre grille not only accentuates the front profile but channels cool air towards to engine to prevent it from overheating. If you wish to add a unique finish to the Roadster, lightweight alloy wheels can be added alongside a choice of coloured brake calipers.
Indulgent and refined – the cabin has everything you would expect from a premium Aston Martin model. The Alcantara trimmed steering wheel and the optional carbon fibre gearshift paddles quickly remind you of the obsessive attention paid to all the details.
A range of bespoke panel stitching and various stripe designs can be selected to align your personal style with the luxurious cabin.
Optional lightweight seating heightens the effect of sitting inside a race car. The Kevlar and carbon-fibre composite structure helps you to feel secure and in control when you’re driving.
Another defining aspect to the V12 Vantage S is the gearbox options provided. As a model that was initially introduced to go racing, the offering of a seven-speed Sportshift III transmission fits with the racing ethos.
Alongside the Sportshift III gearbox, we are proud to offer a manual alternative. Nowhere was it more at home than in the V12 Vantage S. Currently the only naturally aspirated, V12 manual anywhere on sale, it really is a unique driving experience. The 7 speed set up runs with an iconic, race orientated dog-leg format. Aston Martin have combined this analogue experience with some clever technology.
The AM Shift system that is integrated with the 7 speed manual allows full throttle gear changes on the way up the box and it will automatically blip the throttle to rev match on the way back down. If you prefer to do this yourself, the system can switched off at the touch of a button.
The 6.0-litre engine can reach speeds of 205mph and hits 0-60mph in 3.7 seconds. The compact agility of the Vantage chassis and the three-stage adjustable dampers also make this one of the most responsive drives.
Never before have we seen such a dynamic driving experience paired with a luxurious open top cabin. If you wish to experience this engineering exception for yourself, then contact us today to book a test drive.
