Aston Martin is calling their new Vantage V12 S the "ultimate analog Aston Martin" and we could not agree more. The seven-speed manual will feature a dog-leg gearbox configuration and AMSHIFT, a feature that emulates the heel and toe downshifting technique. The new manual will be available at no additional cost and performance between the manual and automatic will remain the same. 

Just how fast is the Vantage V12 S? Blazing fast. The car can get from 0-60 in 3.9 seconds and hit a top speed of 205 mph. Other features include a Sport-Plus Pack package that features five colors that can matched with color accents in the grille, side sills, mirror caps, and rear diffuser blades. It will also have their latest AMi III infotainment system with a new and improved user interface, improved navigation, and Apple CarPlay.
