The 2013 Aston Martin V12 Vantage S is the successor to the Aston Martin V12 Vantage that appears in Forza Horizon 2 as part of the IGN Car Pack as well as in all newer main Forza titles. It also appears in various E3 2017 gameplay footage of Forza Motorsport 7[1].

The Vantage S is more powerful than its predecessor and switched to a paddle-shifter gearbox that is lighter than the previous model's manual transmission. With a claimed top speed of 205 mph (330 km/h), it is currently the fastest series production car by Aston Martin.

DescriptionEdit

Should you encounter the urge to travel at speeds upwards of 200 mph in regal comfort, the Vantage S awaits. Packed with a V12, the Vantage S just pulls and pulls… and then pulls some more. Excess is standard equipment in an Aston Martin and the Vantage S positively exudes it. This is more car than most will ever need, but isn’t half the fun knowing that a car is capable of much more than it will ever be asked? Take this ultimate luxury sport coupe for a ride and decide for yourself.

SpecificationsEdit

The Vantage S is powered by Aston Martin's long-running 5.9 litre V12 engine, codenamed AM28, which has been updated with a new engine management system and variable valve timing with knock sensors for higher efficiency. The AM28 packs improved specifications over its predecessor as it offers 565 hp (421 kW) at 6650 rpm and 457 ft·lb (620 N·m) of torque at 5500 rpm, with about 400 ft·lb (542 N·m) of torque already accessible at 1000 rpm.

The chassis of the Vantage S weighs 33 lb (15 kg) less than its predecessor but has slightly more weight on the front. Its seven-speed paddle-shifter gearbox offers quicker gear changes compared to its predecessor and allows the car to hit at least 205 mph (330 km/h). Its instanteneous torque output makes a 0 to 60 mph time of four seconds and 0 to 100 mph time of 8.7 seconds possible, although the former is actually slower in the Forza series than officially claimed by the manufacturer.[3]
