Geneva 2011 – Aston Martin Vantage S – rpmGo.com

Aston Martin Vantage S

The Aston Martin Vantage S was revealed back in January this year and the British company decided to bring it at this year’s edition of the Geneva Motor Show, to the delight of the audience. Under that beautiful bonnet it has a V8 4.7-liter engine that develops 430 hp (436 PS / 321 kW) and 361 lb.-ft (490 Nm) of torque, mated to the all-new Sportshift II transmission that allows the car to do the 0-60 mph sprint in about 4.5 seconds, on its way to a top speed of 305 km/h. With this V8 engine, the Vantage S will do only 18.2 mpg (12.9 liters / 100 km) and emit 299 g/km of CO2.

The engineers also played a little bit with the car’s handling which has been improved thanks to the installation of a new sport-tuned suspension, a dynamic stability control system and bigger brakes.

Design-wise, this gorgeous coupe has a carbon fiber front splitter, a big rear spoiler, a carbon fiber rear diffuser and aerodynamic side skirts. It also sports a new exhaust system, modified bumpers and sits on a 19-inch alloy wheels set with Bridgestone high-performance rubber.

There aren’t many changes inside the cabin, but you can find a Weave Alloy trim, a sport steering wheel and plenty of “Vantage S” badges to distinguish the model.
