Incredible Underbody Engineering

Our engineers set out to create a car that delivered you accessible performance and more excitement - whatever the conditions. New technology. Innovative, patented solutions. World-class partners. They came together to create a car like no other, a car you’ll love driving.

The AM28 engine, Sportshift III transmission, Adaptive Damping, just three elements of our engineering story.

An Architectural Philosophy

Gen4 VH architecture, the latest evolution of our world-renowned and admired construction philosophy. Lightweight aluminium is joined with epoxy resin used in aerospace engineering. Gen4 - specifically engineered for V12 Vantage S - is more rigid than ever before. Holding the AM28 engine within the smallest Aston Martin chassis, our VH architecture has delivered again - flexibility, performance, the core to a pure driving experience.

    CLICK AND DRAG TO ROTATE

    More Power,
    More Often

    The AM28 engine increases peak power to 565bhp, but alongside this is instantly accessible torque throughout the rev range. Even at 1000rpm there is an additional 70Nm of torque compared to our previous model. Increased acceleration throughout the gears means a consistent performance graph. V12 Vantage S doesn’t just peak, V12 Vantage S gets ahead and stays ahead.

    Maximised Airflow

    To manage the enhanced power from AM28 we re-engineered airflow management to improve cooling and engine performance. The carbon fibre front grille, mesh aperture and air ducts were designed and engineered to feed as much air into the radiator. Maximum cooling efficiency is achieved before air exits via the carbon fibre bonnet louvres.

    A compact, simple design means uninterrupted exterior airflow. Advanced technical solutions ensure that underbody and through-flow is just as smooth. With the front grille improving air intake and air velocity both the Sportshift III transmission block and the exhaust muffler were shaped to provide maximum downforce. Engineered as a whole rather than a sum of parts, V12 Vantage S utilises all of Aston Martin’s 100 years of engineering excellence.

    Aerodynamic Performance

    Sounds You Want
    Not Noise You Don't

    The unique V12 Vantage S sound is what we want you to hear, not road noise. ‘Noise, Vibration and Harshness’ the description of everything our engineers wanted to remove from the cabin. An all new surface insulation – made from 80% recycled materials – was engineered by our materials team. Covering 33% more cabin area than V12 Vantage we’ve achieved exceptional results; a 30% reduction in noise with virtually the same mass.

    An extensive testing and durability programme means V12 Vantage S has been scrutinised and honed for nearly two years. Winter testing of chassis and powertain, sub-system durability under temperature terrain and distance extremes. Of course a car like V12 Vantage S was also honed on the track. Developed and tested from our Nürburgring test centre, a near-production version of the car also completed the grueling 24hrs of Nürburgring race in both 2013 and 2014 – passing the ultimate competitive engineering test.
