2015 ASTON MARTIN V12 VANTAGE S DEBUTS

OVERVIEW OF ALL NEW 2015  V12 VANTAGE S :

“The new car replaces the outgoing V12 Vantage in markets around the world and, with the exception of the One-77 hypercar, arrives as the fastest road-going Aston Martin yet offered,” said Aston Martin in a press statement.

The 2015 model will be equipped with a brand-new 565-hp 6.0-liter V12 engine and comes with a seven-speed Sportshift III automated manual transmission. The company promises that the unit is “lighter” than a base six-speed manual gearbox according to a company press release.The Vantage gas a top speed of 205 mph, and also comes equipped with a lighter exhaust system modeled off of the One-77.Other features include the debut of three-stage adaptive damping which allows drivers to choose between Normal, Sport, and Track modes according to Aston Martin.
A new lightweight forged alloy 10-spoke wheels and a black painted roof are also standard.

TECHNICAL SPECS :

POWER   -573PS

TORQUE-620Nm

SPEED    -205mph

  • ENGINE: THE NEW AM28 ENGINE

The new-generation AM28 V12 engine delivers exceptional performance. Integrated with our ‘Gen4’ VH architecture this combination drives peak power to 565bhp and a phenomenal top speed of 205mph. An advanced engine management system controls AM28 alongside the debut of Dual Variable Camshaft Timing and knock-sensing – all improving efficiency and engine capability.

  • GEARBOX: INTRODUCING SPORTSHIFT III

To unleash the full capability of AM28 we’ve produced ‘Sportshift III’ – an all-new gearbox unique to V12 Vantage S. Sportshift III produces new levels of precision and a level of driver engagement you would expect from our most aggressive sporting experience. With a twin-plate clutch and slave cylinder taken from the One-77 hypercar, V12 Vantage S has a transmission developed for peak performance.

  • TRANSMISSION CONTROL: ENGINEERED FOR SPEED & CONTROL

As a rear mid-mounted unit, Sportshift III contributes to a near-perfect 48:52 weight distribution. Paddle-shift controls, tipped with leather or carbon-fibre link to advanced electro-hydraulic controls meaning each gear-shift takes less than 70 milliseconds. Combined with a drive ratio of 3.727:1 and seven-gears – enabling the first six gears to sit closer – the V12 Vantage S has incredible standing start and in-gear acceleration.

  • EXHAUST: SOUNDS INCREDIBLE

Every Aston Martin sounds unique, V12 Vantage S introduces a new voice to the choir. Using the same reduced size and lightweight muffler as Vanquish & One-77 our engineers set out to create the perfect sound for our most aggressive car. A ‘savage rasp’ is the result of high-frequency tones matched with a powerful rumble, but progression is linear as balanced cross pipework mixes exhaust from each bank. Clear growth at high-revs rewards you for pushing V12 Vantage S to the limit.

  • ADAPTIVE DAMPING: UNRIVALED AGILITY

Adaptive damping developed for Vanquish is introduced to V12 Vantage S. Three modes; normal, sport and track give fantastic driver flexibility, changing ride firmness and the sharpness of handling. Hundreds of readings per second adjust each damper based on road conditions, vehicle performance and driver control. Integrating this technology within our smallest sports car chassis saw innovative new suspension mounts engineered specifically to mate the Vantage body with this advanced ADS.

  • DYNAMIC STABILITY CONTROL: PERFECT FOR THE SKILLED DRIVER

Introduced on V12 Vantage, V12 Vantage S sees a complete recalibration of both traction and stability controls for complete control of the increased power and adaptive damping. Traction control automatically senses front / rear wheel rotations, adjusting engine torque or braking instantly. Stability control senses over or under-steer and applies the relevant brake level. Technology designed to complement the handling experience and improve control for the skilled driver.

  • BREAKS: CARBON CERAMIC BRAKES

3rd generation brakes, the best we’ve ever developed. Working with specialist suppliers we created a revised disc coating and the largest braking surface ever used on an Aston Martin. Cross-drilled carbon ceramic matrix reduces weight, noise and judder – all with virtually no brake fade. Specially designed to dissipate heat, braking performance is prolonged, especially in dynamic road or track conditions. Calipers uniquely supplied for Aston Martin feature a strengthened bridge and monobloc construction.

  • WHEELS & TYRE: LIGHTWEIGHT WHEELS

An all new lightweight forged wheel creates a striking side profile as more of the brake caliper and carbon ceramic disc are displayed. Over 1kg lighter than the standard V12 Vantage wheel, the reduced unsprung mass provides better turning response. With all this technology, we don’t forget the one element in contact with the road – tyres. Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres come as standard for superb grip and handling with improved all-weather performance from the Pirelli P Zero as a no cost extra.
