A special V12 Vantage S fitted with a proper three-pedal manual and seven forward gears in a “dogleg” arrangement is available and priced from $202,820. Unfortunately, only 100 of these are allocated for the United States.
The V12 Vantage S range is powered by Aston Martin’s familiar 5.9-liter V-12 good for 565 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque.
