Aston Martin V8 Vantage S Hire

This is the latest baby Aston – the delectable Vantage S. It should look very familiar to you and underneath the handsome skin Darwinian evolution is the order of the day, too. The now-familiar 4.7-litre V8 now has 430bhp (up 10bhp) and 361lb ft (up 15lb) thanks to improved breathing and more accurate spark ignition. A new exhaust system is both lighter and (this is hard to believe) even fruitier in Sport mode. Perhaps most significantly the Vantage S comes with a brand new seven-speed Sportshift gearbox, which promises shorter stacked ratios for greater acceleration and much reduced shift times.

Our verdict:
The S looks pretty good considering it brings refreshed styling, more power, a new gearbox, quicker steering and a more focussed chassis. On this evidence the increase in grip, control and agility makes the S the pick of the Vantage range.
