More impressive though is the Sportshift II transmission that Aston Martin developed especially for the Vantage S. The Sportshift II automated manual transmission delivers 7 short ratio gears, allowing for exceedingly quick gear changes, up to 20% quicker than the first Sportshift, which creates an even sportier driving experience. This single clutch system reduces the complexity and puts the control with the driver, which along with the ‘Sport’ button quickens the gear changes even further.
The new Aston Martin Vantage S is currently available to order for anyone lucky enough to be able to afford one. The car is quite well summed up by Ulrich Bez, Aston Martin’s CEO who notes: “The Vantage S epitomises every attribute of the V8 Vantage and pushes the driver experience beyond what we have offered before, It combines dynamic exhilaration with all the charming finesse, beauty and practicality already associated with the Vantage range."
