Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Priced From $184,995

Follow Joel

After intriguing us with teasers, Aston Martin pulled the wraps of the new V12 Vantage S a few weeks ago. At the time, very few questions were left unanswered, except for price. We now know the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S will be priced from $184,995.

The new V12 Vantage S has been confirmed as the brand's fastest accelerating production car to date--excluding the limited-edition One-77--taking a mere 3.7 seconds to hit 60 mph from a standstill. The heart of the new V12 Vantage S is a 6.0-liter V-12 engine rated at 565 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque. Most impressive is that 376 pound-feet of that torque is available at a mere 1,000 rpm.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a new Sportshift III automated manual transmission, while the exhaust is derived from the One-77 supercar.

Steering is handled by an electronically-controlled hydraulic power steering system with a 15:1 ratio. This system is tuned to match the three-stage adaptive damping system, with "Normal," "Sport," and "Track" modes. Each mode adjusts throttle response, gearshift speed, and timing, along with the exhaust note.

The design of the V12 Vantage S features with either black carbon fiber or titanium silver mesh accents, alloy 10-spoke wheels, a graphics package, and a new grille insert inspired by the stunning CC100 Speedster Concept.

Inside the cabin you'll find new sport seats with either Luxmill or semi-aniline leathers, though Alcantara upholstery is an option.

For those keeping score, the new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray with the Z51 Package is nearly $130,000 cheaper. It will do 0-60 mph in just 0.1 seconds less than the V12 Vantage S.
