V8 Vantage S

A lesson in race-bred dynamism.

V8 Vantage S

Aston Martin

We started with the V8 Vantage, a revered car and an iconic part of the Aston Martin model range. But we knew we could produce an even more sporting, even more agile V8 Vantage. A car which took directly from our GT4 race programme. Our designers and engineers worked to produce a car not to replace V8 Vantage but to complement it, a unique package of intense driver involvement.

Design

Exterior

How to create a more sporting, more aggressive V8 Vantage? Our designers wanted to maintain the classic Vantage shape but add presence and assertion, stronger visuals with clear purpose. With inspiration from our class-leading GT race programme our world-leading design team created a car which stayed pure to the Vantage ethos but exposed exquisite sporting styling and details. A lower front bumper finished in perfectly-aligned carbon fibre houses a larger air intake feeding the engine and front brakes. A rear splitter combines with the extended deck lid ‘flip’ work in harmony to provide increased down force at speed and give a dynamic rear profile. Side sills taken from the V12 Vantage optically widen the car and ‘plant’ it on the road.

Design

Interior

Authentic materials are crafted by experts to create a cockpit of the finest quality, but not one of distraction. Unique V8 Vantage S styling features include race-track style stitching, a distinctive lightweight seat design and stitched door-card panels. With thousands of possible colour and material combinations V8 Vantage S can be uniquely personalised to exacting standards.

Top-Down Exhilaration

Vantage

Convertibles rarely preserve the cohesion of the Coupe, V8 Vantage S Roadster is a glorious exception. Styled as an athlete wearing a skin-tight suit, the Roadster’s rakish lines and tailored roof in keeping with its pared-back, performance-biased brief. Raised or lowered in just 18 seconds at speeds of up to 30 mph, the fabric hood stows beneath an aluminium tonneau to create a clean, unbroken line from front to rear.

Infotainment and Technology

Vantage’s new infotainment system, AMi II brings ergonomic and interface refinements to create a fully intuitive experience. High quality switchgear and contemporary materials combined with instantly responsive displays are integrated with the car’s dynamic performance. Key infotainment features now include Bluetooth® as standard, text message integration and a wide range of connectivity options.

Sounds Unique

As with every Aston Martin, the V8 Vantage S benefits from its own unique sound, engineered specifically by our Sound Engineers to fit the tone of the car and its place in our model range. Constructed by a new exhaust muffler and bypass valve map, each element combines to create a distinctive and highly vocal exhaust note.
