Torque NM Power PS Seconds 0 to 100 kmh 490 Torque NM 436 Power PS 4.8 Seconds 0 to 100 kmh ENHANCED DYNAMICS A 4.7-Litre V8 engine sits at the heart of V8 Vantage S, specifically tuned to create the right blend of power and performance, it is the most potent V8 unit we’ve ever made. With peak power of 430 bhp (436 PS) and a maximum torque of 490 Nm (361 lb ft) the V8 Vantage S enhances the stunning figures produced by V8 Vantage. SEARING URGENCY A top speed of 190 mph and a 0-60 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint time of just 4.8 seconds makes the V8 Vantage S an intense and dynamic driving experience. SPORTSHIFT II TRANSMISSION Fitted as standard is an all-new seven-speed ‘Sportshift II’ paddle-operated transmission. Featuring closer gear ratios and a shorter final-drive ratio, the V8 Vantage S has exceptional in-gear acceleration. Sportshift II allows the driver to take an increased level of control, modulating the throttle peddle to achieve the desired type of gear change. AT THE TOUCH OF A BUTTON One press of the exquisite glass ‘Sport’ button quickens the gear change and gives the driver a more aggressive throttle response while also opening the exhaust bypass valves across most of the engine speed range. The Sport button puts the driver in complete control, the epitome of what it means to experience V8 Vantage S.
