An advanced aluminium structure sits at the heart of every Aston Martin. This ‘VH’ platform is uniquely tailored for Vantage S to offer the rigidity and agility required of such a dynamic sports car. With aerospace-standard epoxy resin bonding the complex structure the adaptable VH platform uses industry-leading technology to produce a balance between performance, safety and exquisite exterior form.

Underpinned by Expertise


Vantage’s new infotainment system, AMi II brings ergonomic and interface refinements to create a fully intuitive experience. High quality switchgear and contemporary materials combined with instantly responsive displays are integrated with the car’s dynamic performance. Key infotainment features now include Bluetooth® as standard, text message integration and a wide range of connectivity options. Convenience is married to peerless style with an elegant new centre stack available in a wide variety of tactile finishes, touch sensitive switchgear featuring haptic feedback technology and a user interface that is completely intuitive.


As with every Aston Martin, the V8 Vantage S benefits from its own unique sound, engineered specifically by our Sound Engineers to fit the tone of the car and its place in our model range. Constructed by a new exhaust muffler and bypass valve map, each element combines to create a distinctive and highly vocal exhaust note.

Bridging the gap between road and track, the Vantage S is heavily influenced by the Vantage GT4. Forming the engineering base from which the race-ready car is created. Racing safety modifications include an FIA roll cage and racing fuel tank along with weight savings. With 40 race wins in 2012 alone, in championships taking place around the world we also use the lessons learned in our GT programme to make the Vantage range even more capable. Put simply, when we win, you win.
