Purchased an awesome V12 Vantage S, fantastic car with awesome performance and stunning look.
Until about 2.5 years ago I had been driving Porsches, the last being a 930 Turbo - very fast, very raw. I decided to change and bought a 2009 Vantage Volante which I enjoyed for 1 glorious summer before the dealer showed me a V8 S coupe, as I had decided that I was really a bit of a purist and was not sure that the cabriolet was right for me. So I exchanged it for a low mileage 2012 V8S coupe. What a great car, noisy, quick, easy to drive and stunning to look at. Then I heard a V12S and, after a test drive, decided that's the car for me. Two months later I bought a stunning 2014 Skyfall Silver V12 S. It is incredible... looks fantastic with the accented interior matching the calipers, perfectly maintained and the handling and performance are mind numbing. Driving in normal mode it is satisfyingly noisy, but at the same time understated as an AM should be, put it into sport and it is the most exhilarating experience you will ever have. Driven with respect and understanding it will excite and satisfy the senses. Drive it carelessly and it will intimidate you and dare you... The modified steering gives a feeling of oneness with the car and in conjunction with the responsiveness of the engine to the accelerator pedal you truly feel like a part of the car. I imagine a jet fighter pilot must feel that same instant kick and seemingly never ending acceleration, quite simply exciting, exhilarating and satisfying. Why do I have a 700W stereo system when I can press the SPORT button, crack open a window and listen to the 12 piece orchestra under the bonnet. I love this car. 9.75 out of 10 just because of a slightly annoying rattle from the passenger door, a minor issue in context.
I bought a V8 Vantage 2 years ago and thought it was fantastic. I have now upgraded to a Vantage V12S, it is absolutely awesome. The build quality is top drawer, the performance jaw dropping and it is stunningly beautiful from any angle. The best car I have ever had and there have been a lot.
The Vantage V12S is my third Aston and is very different from the GTs I have had before, a DB9 and DBS. This is much more of a sports car and, with the manual gearbox, is a much more engaging driving experience. The gearbox is not the slickest but the AMshift feature helps a lot. The new infotainment system is a great improvement, although the lack of some common SatNav features is a little frustrating. All in all a great car!
