V8 Vantage S - Design V8 Vantage S Design Technical Multimedia Test Drive INSPIRED STYLING With inspiration from our class-leading GT race program, our world-leading design team created a car which remained true to the Vantage ethos, but exposed exquisite sporting styling and details. Our designers wanted to maintain the classic Vantage shape while adding presence and assertion, and stronger visuals with clear purpose. DYNAMIC DESIGN A new lower front bumper finished in perfectly aligned carbon fiber houses a larger air intake to feed the engine and front brakes. A rear splitter combines with the extended deck lid “flip” to work in harmony to provide increased down force at speed and give a dynamic rear profile. Side sills taken from the V12 Vantage optically widen the car and “plant” it on the road. SCULPTED BY SPEED The V8 S is distinguished from the regular V8 by exposed carbon-fiber detailing, including the stability enhancing front splitter and dramatic rear diffuser. With a sports exhaust fitted as standard, the V8 S has a rousing aural signature to perfectly match its sharpened looks and performance. SUMPTUOUS STYLE Through the combination of time-honored traditional craftsmanship and striking contemporary design themes, the interior of the V8 S makes a truly sporting statement. With bold use of the finest leather and artful application of contrasting stitching, the cockpit abounds with eye-catching flourishes.
