2015 MY Aston Martin V12 Vantage S
Aston Martin are renown for being suppliers of cars to the James Bond franchise, with nearly every two-door car of theirs carrying some Bond affiliation in the mind of the public, regardless of whether the model actually featured along the superspy or not. Another hallowed name of theirs is the Vantage tag, previously applied to the top-tier trim of models, especially those with the largest engine and most horsepower. In 2005, Aston Martin made the nameplate a separate model, with the V8 Vantage, and the V12 Vantage followed in 2009. What we’ve got on sale is a very eye-catching, gorgeous, drop-top 2015 Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Roadster for you to buy and enjoy, with just 22,300 miles done since new.
Sporting a Madagascar Orange paint job, this 2015 Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Roadster is definitely not one for skulking about in the shadows, so you better get used to turned heads and admiring glances. Rolling on a set of contrasting black alloy wheels, and sporting a black power convertible top, it’s definitely going to make statements wherever you take it. Take a few moments to breathe in the lustrous Aston Martin design that is truly unmistakable before you read any further. Now, let’s get inside the two-seat cabin. It’s a very tasteful affair of mostly black, with orange accents to remind you of the exterior color. Aston Martin design quirks include the uber-cool analog gauge cluster with anticlockwise-sweeping tachometer, the center analog clock, gear selector buttons in the dash, and handbrake down by the driver’s left thigh. This cabin sports plenty of modern tech, including climate control, infotainment system with motorized screen, multifunction steering wheel with paddle shifters, cruise control, electrically adjustable seats with memory for the driver’s seat, and a sublime Bang & Olufsen sound system with tweeters that rise up from the dash. It's art, it’s theatre. Even the key fob features glass construction so you better not drop it.
Under the graceful hood of this 2015 Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Roadster lurks a 6.0L (OK, 5.9L if we’re splitting hairs) naturally aspirated V12 that can bang out 565hp and 457lb-ft. A plaque informs you that the final inspection was carried out by Mick Freeman, such is the level of detail that comes with an Aston Martin. Drive goes to the rear wheels via a 7-speed Sportshift automated manual transmission, for a top speed of 201mph. Zero to sixty can be dispatched in 4.1 seconds under ideal conditions.
