Debuted in 2005, the Aston Martin V8 Vantage was an instant hit. The original 4.3L V8 produced 380 horsepower and the car was praised for both its balanced road manners and intoxicating sound. That engine, however, would only last two production years and was replaced with an aluminum block V8 in 2008. The new engine featured a number of updates, but most important was an increase in displacement to 4.7L. The new V8 produced 420 horsepower in the basic V8 Vantage, but Aston Martin would soon be offering an even more powerful option. The V8 Vantage S, unveiled in 2011, offered an even more performance oriented version of the already phenomenal Vantage. With an additional 10 horsepower, less restrictive exhaust, carbon fiber aerodynamic enhancements, a Formula 1 style 7-speed sequential gearbox, a quick and an additional focus on weight reduction, the V8 Vantage S improved upon nearly every aspect of the already adored Vantage.

This 2012 Aston Martin V8 Vantage S is finished in the very rare, and equally stunning, Marron Black Metallic paint over a two-tone cream and brown interior. With only 24,000 miles on the odometer, the 4.7L V8 still performs like its brand new and proves that Aston Martin in capable of creating some of the best sounding engines to be fitted in a road car. This Vantage is in phenomenal condition throughout, having been protected for most of its life by clear 3M protective film.
