However, we knew that something truly special could be created. V12 Vantage S Roadster is the emphatic proof. PURE POWER Performance of an epic scale is provided by our most powerful 6.0-litre V12 with a searing 565 bhp (573 PS) and muscular 620 Nm (457 lb ft), top speed of 201 mph and reaching 0-60 mph in just 3.9 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.1 seconds). – a truly remarkable set of figures. Combining explosive acceleration and an accurate, accessible progression, V12 Vantage S Roadster exudes incredible power without a trace of intimidation. The V12 engine’s richly complex voice is ever-present and builds to a distinctive howl that is pure drama. It is the perfect storm. A FORCE OF NATURE Key to the V12 Vantage S’ dynamic blend of mighty force and intuitive control is a stunning purity of feedback relayed to the driver. The intricately detailed picture is rendered by accurate, bristling steering feel and the precision created by the Vantage’s super-stiff aluminium chassis. UNRIVALLED AGILITY A three-stage Adaptive Damping System (ADS) with Normal, Sport and Track modes creates a broad bandwidth of performance and uprated Carbon Ceramic Matrix disc brakes have feel and power to spare. Confidence-inspiring DSC stability control and ABS, honed for expert but never intrusive intervention, complete a uniquely exciting and rewarding dynamic palette. This technology is crucial yet almost invisible from behind the steering wheel, the driving experience defined by an organic, instinctive quality that places you at the epicentre of the action. ULTIMATE INVOLVEMENT Harnessing the potential of V12 Vantage S Roadster is the seven-speed Sportshift III automated manual transmission. Its precise, engaging gearshifts enhance the sense of endless, accessible power and underscore the outstanding agility with an authentic flavour of motorsport. For ultimate response, Sport mode offers an engineered, instantaneous aggression that seems connected directly to your senses. Intuitive and breathless, Sportshift III puts the driver in control.
