A V12 fed through a manual transmission is a rare find these days. At present, not a single new car comes with that combination. Which makes this -the 2017 Aston Martin V12 Vantage S AMR- a very special drive. The “AMR” is a special edition of the V12 S, and comes a screaming titanium exhaust and 30 more HP than a standard car, for a total of 595HP. At the time, it was the most powerful Vantage ever.300 AMRs were made: 200 have V8s, have V12s. And only 1 had the added carbon package.
** Regarding wind noise: I tried some noise cancelling software in Audition and it sounded like aliens talking under water. So I edited 2 clips of this video, (one with noise cancelling and one without) posted them on IG, and took a poll: Everyone voted for wind noise. So, I apologize.
