The sleek Aston Martin Vantage coupe has got a bit of a meaner, leaner look to it with the launch of the Vantage S.

Its 4.7-litre V8 gets a bit more power and torque over the basic Vantage, bumping it up to 430bhp and 361lb ft, which is driven through a new seven-speed semi-auto gearbox. The Vantage Ss set-up has been tweaked, too, so it should be sharper to drive compared with other cars in the range.

If having it in Normal mode isnt quite exciting enough for you, Sport mode gives you quicker gearchanges and throttle response, which should make things even more exciting.
