Aston Martin V12 Vantage S

Dissatisfied with the V8 Vantage, or its bigger brother with the V12 engine? Then meet Aston Martin‘s newest monster – the V12 Vantage S. While the name to most would normally denote fancier interior trim and a lightened body, the British masterpiece manufacturer have disregarded rival companies’ traditions and decked out this new release with a revised 6.0-liter V12 engine now outputting 565 horsepower, a new seven-speed “hydraulically actuated automated manual transmission” with race-spec software, and enhanced three-stage adaptive damping in its suspension. More noteworthy however is the improved top speed that now pushes this sports coupé past the 200mph milestone, a feat accomplished by only one other car in the Aston Martin family – the seven-figured special edition super car One-77. With a projected price tag of around $200,000 USD and a release in early 2014, this once touted “Baby Aston” seems to have grown up into a bona fide brute.
