V8 Vantage

Yet its effortless, intuitive feel and comprehensive equipment mean it is a very special car that can be enjoyed every day. New for 2012, the incredible agility and thrilling dynamism of the V8 Vantage have been enhanced with more responsive steering, sharper handling, wider wheels and tyres, upgraded brakes and, available as an option, a bespoke new seven-speed ‘Sportshift II’ paddle-operated transmission.

V8 Vantage S

Featuring race-winning aerodynamics honed in GT racing, and unique interior detailing, the V8 Vantage S is an overtly sporting Vantage. Aimed at the keenest of drivers, its sensational performance, ride and handling characteristics make the V8 Vantage S the benchmark sports car. At its heart sits a potent 4.7-litre engine, producing 430 bhp and 490 Nm, mated to a bespoke seven-speed ‘Sportshift II’ paddle-operated transmission and short final-drive ratio delivering exceptional in-gear acceleration for a searing sense of urgency.

V12 Vantage

Compact, agile and blisteringly quick, this is the most potent of the Vantage model range. With its unashamedly aggressive and purposeful stance, distinctive detailing and our breathtakingly powerful 6.0-litre, 12-cylinder engine, the V12 Vantage can rightly claim to be one of the most exciting and extraordinary cars in the world. Available only as a coupe, and with a slick-shifting, six-speed manual gearbox and state-of-the-art carbon ceramic braking system fitted as standard, the V12 Vantage combines the low weight, agility and dynamism of a compact sports car with the big-hearted performance and mile-eating stride of a great GT.
