Last week, Aston Martin introduced us to the CC100 Speedster Concept, a gorgeous Sterling Moss-inspired racer.  Before they debuted the Vanquish Centenary Edition.  Now, Aston’s latest reason to call in any IOUs is comes in a more (if only slightly) attainable form, the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S.  As usual, the S stands (at least in my head) for Scooty. According to the folks in Gaydon, the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S brings...
