2017 Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Review

Aston Martin referred to the V12 Vantage as an “unprecedented engineering achievement”.  Later, the automaker observed that they could have stopped there but they instead took their imagination a little bit further and went on to craft a more powerful variant of the V12 Vantage that features a lighter chassis and a more responsive transmission. The result is the V12 Vantage S which Aston Martin refers to as “the most ferocious Aston Martin” to ever come out of their factory. For 2017, Aston Martin has even gone old school to keep the model fresh in the minds of its enthusiasts.

The 565 hp V12 isn’t new. The body looks the same. There aren’t changes in the suspension, steering, brakes, wheels, or tires. Even the gearbox is the same, except it’s also very different.

Aston Martin has only ever offered the V12 Vantage S with a seven-speed single clutch automated manual from Graziano. The 2017 V12 Vantage S has that same gearbox, but with a very obvious change. The paddles are gone, replaced by a shift lever and a third pedal. It took a lot of work for it to happen since this may be the first time that an automated manual has been made into a true manual.

The new 2017 Aston Martin V12 Vantage S comes with a manual gearbox but I can’t help but wonder why they didn’t bring the manual gearbox when the Vantage S was introduced in 2013. In fact, the Vantage S is the only V-12 powered car with a manual transmission. The reason behind the manual offering is so that drivers can get to enjoy driving the vehicle more, something that automatic transmissions rob the driver.

2017 Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Specs

The package is back, in a sense. For the 2017 model year, Aston will produce the V12 Vantage S with a seven-speed manual transmission. And not the automated manual business supplied by Graziano, that has attracted my ire for being about as subtle as a kick in the pants. There’s a human-operated clutch and a proper manual lever.

It gets better, at least if you’re a manual-transmission geek. Aston fitted a dogleg box to this car, meaning first gear is to the left and down, below reverse and where second gear would sit in a traditional H-pattern floor shifter. Less traditional is the throttle-blipping function, which will make downshifts smoother for those unable or unwilling to heel-toe. If AMSHIFT, which is Graydon’s code-word for the system, is not your thing it can be disabled or used in any driving mode.

The exterior look of the V12 Vantage S comes unchanged from that of the 2016 model, reason being Aston Martin doesn’t want to fix something that is not broken.

However, the automaker has added aerodynamic improvements to the model. These improvements include a huge front splitter, a sporty diffuser, sturdy side skirts and a host of carbon-fiber components. The result is a very light vehicle but not as light as its track-variant, the GT12.

The cabin is also largely unchanged from the 2016 model. Almost all surfaces are wrapped in premium leather. The seats are also wrapped in leather but there is an option for Alcantara. The steering wheel is wrapped in Alcantara.

Buyers can select either Light weight bucket-style design for the seats or a sports design. Buyers can also opt for one or a combination of the 20 contrast stitching colors offered. Its wide range  of a whopping 31 hues and 16 extra shades makes for infinite color combinations meaning buyers can customize the cabin to suit their unique tastes and preferences.

This excellent exterior design though crafted in the early 2000 still looks fresh even in the midst of the new design language as showcased by the new DB11. Nonetheless, buyers looking for a more modern touch will love the optional Sport-Plus Package which features an option of five body colors. The package also features accent colors on the side sills, front grille, mirror caps and the rear diffuser.

2017 Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Engine

As you have already imagined, the V12 Vantage S is motivated by a V-12 engine. The mill is a 5.9 L, naturally aspirated engine which comes good with 565 hp and 457 lb-ft of torque. However, as I said earlier, the engine comes with a new manual gearbox.

But the best part of this car is the drivetrain. The 5.9 liter V12 is the last of its kind, no turbos, start-stop, cylinder deactivation, or other fuel saving tech here. This is just pure gas guzzling feel goodery that ascends to the rev range heavens with absolutely no issue. It also feels totally different than a V12 from Ferrari or Lamborghini. Those engines can be manic, shouty, ferocious. The Aston’s power delivery is smoother and feels more dignified, more baritone than hyper soprano. But it still makes 565 hp, which, if you were thinking otherwise, is a considerable amount of power.

In addition to the regular 7-speed Sportshift III automatic transmission, there will be a 7-speed manual gearbox. What’s more, the system now features a dogleg 1st gear position that groups regularly used gears in a double H pattern which provides for quick shifting. The system also features the AMSHIFT, a system that uses gear position, clutch as well as the prop-shaft sensors to mimic heel-and-tow downshifts and full throttle up shifts which results in minimal interruption in acceleration.

All these tunings help the model hit 60 mph in 3.9 seconds. It has a top speed of 205 mph.
