While Aston Martin has shown us what they are capable of in terms of a radical design with the CC100 Speedster Concept, they have been a little slow when it comes to designing an all-new model for production. A fine example of this is the 2013 DB9, and also the rumored V12 Vantage S, so it is now time to see a completely new model?
Having said that, there are many other car brands on the market that stick with the tried and tested formula, and recycle what has been so popular in the past. Although, we’d love for them to do what Jaguar has done with their upcoming F-Type, as this new Jag is a breathe of fresh air for the car manufacturer, so let’s see something totally new from Aston Martin.

While we cannot be certain of the existence of the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S, a video on their website has gained reaction from the fans, as they believe it to be the aforementioned vehicle.
If this is the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S, then the interior and exterior have been teased, and if it is then you’ll notice that the S model could have an all-new roofline, although we cannot be certain of this considering it wasn’t a clear image.
If this is the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S, then we expect the model to shed a few pounds to help improve the power-to-weight ratio, and a more powerful engine is also expected. We say this because if Aston Martin would like to compete with some of the newer models in this category, they would need to increase its 565 horsepower engine from the current model and increase it to the mid-600 horsepower region.
Let’s hope that this is the final edition of the V12 Vantage, as they’ve been in production since 2005, which will make it 8 years old. Come on Aston, show us what made you so great all those years ago.
