Aston Martin V8 Vantage S

by Joe on January 26, 2011

Aston Martin has announced the new V8 Vantage S, which is available in both coupe and roadster models. The Vantage S’ 4.7-liter V8 engine delivers 430HP and 490Nm (361 lb-ft) of peak torque, representing an increase of 10HP and 20Nm respectively. The V8 is coupled to a new 7-speed Sportshift II gearbox, which has shorter gear ratios and is 20% quicker than the V8 Vantage’s standard 6-speed Sporshift. Other performance upgrades include a revised steering rack ratio, larger front brakes, new springs and dampers and wider rear wheels. [CarScoop]
