Aston Martin V8 Vantage S video

An Aston Martin video that isn't embarrasing to watch at last. See the new flagship baby Aston V8 Vantage S being driven enthusiastically around a track accompanied by some popular music

Some weeks back, Aston Martin released details of their edgier baby Aston, the V8 Vantage S. Sporting a few more horses and extra visual tension to man-up the pebble smooth shape, it also has a host of engineering upgrades under the skin. The big news is a new seven-speed automated manual gearbox, whilst around 30kg of weight-saving measures, along with retuned suspension and steering, make it more than just a rebadging exercise.

Aston Martin promo videos have not always been resounding successes, but this time, they’ve kept it simple. Hammering the Vantage V8 S around a track, there’s a screaming V8 soundtrack overlaid with some slightly questionable drum and bass, but it’s altogether less skin-crawling than their last effort.
