Launched in 2011, the Vantage S model was designed to offer a level of performance between that of the standard V8 and the flagship V12 Vantage. Upgrades to the suspension, braking and aerodynamics were complemented by a revised version of the 4.7 litre engine, which meant it produced 320 Kilowatt and 490Nm of torque, raising the top speed to 304mph.
Available here is a 2012 Aston Martin V8 Vantage S delivered new by Aston Martin Melbourne. Ordered in Casino Royal over Obsidian Black Leather with contrast chancellor red stitching. The Vantage S has travelled only 15,136 kilometres from new.
Being a Vantage S model, the exterior is enhanced by aerodynamic features of the V12 Vantage, including a lower front bumper with the full-width front splitter, as well as the wider sills. At the rear, there is a carbon-fibre diffuser, and the boot lid has a more pronounced integrated ‘duck tail’ spoiler. The 19-inch V-spoke alloy wheels are also unique to the model.
The sumptuous interior is in outstanding condition, featuring the triple-track stitching throughout the leather upholstery, centre console, door cards and seat panels.
Under the bonnet, the black painted intake manifold denotes the ‘S’ specification engine. Its mechanical upgrades over the standard Vantage also included a quicker steering rack, along with new springs and Bilstein dampers. At the front, there are larger two-piece brake discs and six-pot Brembo callipers. The exhaust system is another carryover part from the V12 Vantage, with a switchable valve opening that activates when in ‘Sport’ mode.
Complete with its original glass and butler key, its original manual and service booklet documenting a full Aston Martin dealer service history from new, this Vantage S has been kept in excellent condition and the last service was done in December 2022 at 14,197 kilometres by Aston Martin Sydney.
A very low kilometres example in a desirable colour combination this Aston Martin is the perfect weekender, tourer or even a one-way ticket to liven up your daily commute.
