Aston Martin Unveils the Fastest Vantage Yet

New Vantage S accelerates faster than anything Aston Martin ever made other than the One-77

This has been a big week for Aston Martin with the company unveiling its second all new automobile. The latest car is a new version of the company's venerable Vantage. The car is called the V12 Vantage S and aside from the Aston Martin One-77 the new Vantage S is the company's fastest accelerating car.

Aston Martin says that the new car can hit 60 mph in only 3.7 seconds. I think we know what James Bond's next movie car will be. The car uses Aston Martin's new 573 hp V12 engine that produces 457 pound-foot of torque.

The car promises a top speed of 205 mph. As you can imagine, the car will be very expensive ringing in at $184,995 in the US for starters. Aston Martin CEO Dr Ulrich Bez said: “The new V12 Vantage S brings our winning GT3 race formula to the road. It’s a car for those customers who want superior sporting performance in a ‘gentleman’s suit’. It’s the most pure, yet understated, driving machine we can imagine today.”
