The 2011 Aston Martin V12 Vantage now has a successor, the V12 Vantage S. A newly altered engine, suspension and gear changes are some of the features for consumers to notice in the new 2015 model, which was previously announced to be a 2014 model but has now changed to 2015.
The style may not be all that different from last year’s model, but if looking closely, the difference is the Aston’s front grille. The outgoing car features six horizontal aluminum vanes; the new models have a carbon fiber or titanium mesh. The 10-spoke alloy wheels bring out a fresh addition to the model as well.
While the Vantage S predecessor was only available with a three-pedal, six-speed manual gearbox mid-mounted in the chassis, the new model loses the old fashion transmission in favor of a standard Sportshift III AMT. The Sportshift III AMT is built with a seven speed, single-clutch automated manual transmission with electronic shift-by-wire controls.
Overall, the new Vantage S model is faster and more agile than its predecessor, and is sure to give you a good ride with its new features.
