The Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Is a $200,000 Manual Supercar

  • Published on Jul 10, 2018
    The Aston Martin V12 Vantage S is a supercar with a 565-horsepower V12 -- and a manual transmission. Today I'm reviewing this V12 Vantage S to show you around the Vantage -- possibly the last "old school" Aston Martin.

    “I can’t see any reason why anyone would buy the Aston over the AMG GTS.”
    On the left: Mercedes with turbo-charged engine and auto ‘box.
    On the right: ASTON MARTIN with a manual, naturally aspirated V12 stuffed into the company’s smallest chassis.
    Sorry, Doug, giving these two vehicles the same cool factor score makes a mockery of the Doug Score. Even a first-gen V8 Vantage is cooler than the Merc, let alone the V12 with a manual.

    No the hood alone makes the newer model better looking.

    Surely these will appreciate. Given that the new one has a V8 turbo, Mercedes engine. This a naturally aspirated V12 with a manual. Far more significant than the new one, a category that you skipped?

    i know these "stay-in-position"-doors from the new Porsche Panamera. On the Panamera it is realized with gas (or oil) dampers instead of any springs like in "normal" cars. Is it the same construction on the Aston? And also nice is, you have to pull or push just a little bit over this breakaway point and it opens or closes smoothly.

    This is such a beautiful car. It's just aggressive enough, but very clean, tasteful, and elegant. I like cars that don't try too hard to look good. The Vantage design has a wonderful simplicity about it, even with the contrasting vents!

  • Conscious Robot

    I'm guessing the "infinity hinge" doesn't work perfectly every time. I saw some odd editing there which makes me think the door didn't stay where you put it every time so you edited those instances out. Pretty hilarious!

    • lmaxmai
      lmaxmai 11 days ago

      The edits seem to belong to the "variety and cinematic fluidity" package rather than to the "evangelist conviction" package? If I were to put it in automotive terms with a tendency towards arduousness and a marketing department aftertaste. I held back on writing whitewashing. Ironically, "infinity hinge" seems to be an example of a creation which actually seems kind of neat.

    I believe this engine is the best sounding and yellow is the best color on this car. The new Vantage 1 isn't as beautiful and 2 the v12 won't sound as good being its coming from a different auto company.

    I really think Doug underestimates people as far as them figuring out what their car will do. I bought a 2019 Veloster R-spec and i read all the manuals cover to cover, and thats only a $23,000 car. I think people who are spending this much on a vehicle read their manuals. Not all but definitely more than Doug seems to think.
