POWER BOOST: Now with added power, the V8 Vantage S offers a compelling alternative to Aston’s V12 powered entry-level model.

Earlier in 2011 we reported on Aston Martin's in-house V12 Vantage killer - the V8 S.

The British supercar-maker has announced its fiery alternative to the "entry-level" Vantage to ensure buyers at the bottom end of Aston's range don't feel cheated.

The V8 Vantage S borrows heavily in terms of styling from the 2011 GT4-Vantage race car.

Adding an ‘S’ to the Vantage badge is all about performance and in this regard the latest model gains nine kW of power (to 321kW), tweaked steering and an automated manual transmission.

Check out the new model in action at the Ascari resort circuit in Spain here!
