2013-10-15 18:18:04 - Aston Martin of Austin is now taking orders for the new Vantage S and Vantage Roadster models.
Austin, Texas - Oct. 15, 2013 - The new Aston Martin V12 Vantage S coupe and Vanquish Volante are now available through John Eagle European’s Aston Martin of Austin. The company’s most extreme sports car, the new V12 Vantage S is the fastest accelerating production car to date, with the exception of the limited addition, and sold-out, One-77 hypercar.
"We’re pleased to offer Aston Martin’s new blisteringly fast flagship model, alongside the ultimate grand touring Vanquish Volante, in central Texas,” said Sonny Morgan, dealer principal at Aston Martin of Austin. “And since John Eagle European’s Aston Martin of Austin topped the list of most new Astons sold in the U.S. for the month of August, we’re excited to bring these
two beautiful new models to one of the hottest premium sports car markets in the country.”
With just a 3.7 second to sprint from 0-60 mph, the Vantage S proves its position as the brand’s fastest accelerating production car, as well as the most potent Vantage in Aston Martin’s glittering century-long history. Equipped with the innovative 565 HP 6.0 litre V12 engine, featuring the latest in engine management technology, the car is capable of reaching a top speed of 205 mph.
With 460 ft. lbs. of torque available at 5,750 rpm, the V12 Vantage S is as flexible as it is powerful. All that muscle is supplied to the rear wheels through the new Sportshift III Automatic Manual Transmission to ensure the car boasts true sporting driveability.
The Vantage S is equipped with technology that allows drivers to accurately tune its ride and handling. Three-stage adaptive damping allows the driver to precisely tailor the car’s dynamic character and exploit its clear performance potential. ‘Normal’, ‘Sport’ and ‘Track’ modes provide a broad swathe of dynamic capabilities, while the system also governs the level of power steering assistance offered.
“The new V12 Vantage S brings our winning GT3 race formula to the road,” said Aston Martin CEO Dr Ulrich Bez. “It’s a car for those customers who want superior sporting performance in a ‘gentleman’s suit’. It’s the most pure, yet understated, driving machine we can imagine today.”
The new Vanquish Volante offers an unparalleled driving experience with dynamic performance and world-leading design, but adds the thrill of open top driving. Raw statistics speak for themselves; the Vanquish Volante zips from 0-60 mph in four seconds flat and posts a top speed of 183 mph, firmly placing it in supercar territory.
“The beautiful design and sleek lines, however, only scratch the surface of the new Volante,” said Morgan. “To truly experience the brilliance of the new Vanquish, you must get behind the wheel. The deep roar of the unleashed V12 thrills as it catapults you into the seat while enjoying winding hill country roads.”
As with all Aston Martin sports cars, the perfect balance, high performance stability and nimble handling define the Vanquish Volante and underline the car’s credentials as a truly innovative machine.
