GAYDON, England — The 2015 Aston Martin V12 Vantage S starts at $187,820, including a $2,825 destination charge and a $3,000 gas-guzzler tax, said Aston Martin.

The 2015 Aston Martin V12 Vantage S is expected to go on sale in 2014 in the U.S.

The V12 Vantage S is $56,470 more expensive than the 2013 Porsche 911 GT3, a car that Aston Martin considers to be the V12 Vantage S's closest competitor. The 911 GT3 starts at $131,350, including a $950 destination charge. There is no base 2015 Vantage.

Aston Martin is calling the V12 Vantage S its "fastest accelerating production car to date — with the exception of the limited edition and sold-out One-77 hypercar." The V12 Vantage S sprints from zero to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds, according to the automaker.

It is equipped with the new 565-horsepower AM28 6.0-liter V12 engine. It has a top speed of 205 mph.

The car features three-stage adaptive damping, along with normal, sport and track modes. The sport mode is controlled with a button on the center console that changes throttle response, gearshift speed and timing and exhaust note.

"It's a car for those customers who want superior sporting performance in a 'gentleman's suit,'" said Dr. Ulrich Bez, Aston Martin CEO in a statement.

Aston Martin owners are typically 45-year-old men who typically own five or six other cars, according to Aston Martin demographics.

Edmunds says: Aston Martin owners should be pleased with this latest offering, although it's a little hard to imagine a gentleman's suit in canary yellow paint.
