The last to do so was the own Andy Palmer, CEO of Aston Martin, who said that in the brand “keep alive the manual change all the time possible”.

well, just a few days after those declarations, Aston Martin has made an announcement in this line. The new Aston Martin V12 Vantage S will be available very soon along with a manual change. In particular, we speak of a manual gearbox seven-speed with a schedule perfectly adjustable to the engine management and sensors gear position.

in Addition, it allows so much climbing as you lose motion in a way more comfortable and faster to be able to avoid to a minimum the loss of acceleration during, for example, a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h. Can be used in different driving modes, among which we highlight the Sport. A driving mode that offers a faster response of the accelerator and louder sound of the exhaust.
