Video: 2011 Aston Martin Vantage S

Aston Martin has released an official video of their new Vantage S. Set to be placed between the standard V8 Vantage and the V12, the S is powered by a 4.7-liter V8 with 430 hp at 7,200 rpm and 361 lb-ft of torque at 5,000 rpm. Aston Martin is saying it has a top speed of 189 mph. The standard V8 Vantage has been criticized as not being powerful enough, especially as it's meant to take on the Porsche 911.

Aston Martin is hoping the S model will effectively douse that criticism. We'll have further details in the near future, but in the meantime, enjoy the video.
