Aston Martin V8 Vantage S New Pictures

aston vantage s new 1 at Aston Martin V8 Vantage S New Pictures

Following the first presentation, Aston Martin has released a new set of images from the menacingly beautiful V8 Vantage S. It’s incredible, the changes over regular models in the S are not that significant, yet they seem to have made the Vantage more aggressive and more brilliant.

That is relevant actually, since the S is inspired by the GT4 racing version of the AMV8. It only has like 10 more horsepower than the normal model, but it’s harder and stiffer and tweaked to become faster. The colors of those press pics are also very awesome! Or favorite is the green Cabrio.

We’ve also included the full specification of the car in the gallery below:
