Novice Lusso presenter Ollie Peart is trying out his very first supercar. We filmed him because we thought the pressure would be good for him. Probably.
Finding yourself on your first-ever Lusso assignment – and not only that, but one that advertises your newness behind the wheel of a supercar – would be daunting for most chaps. Fortunately Peart isn’t someone who cares about being judged. Rising, Lord Flashheart-like, to the challenge (albeit without the suggestive pelvic thrusting) he pulls on his metaphorical driving gloves and gets behind the wheel of Aston Martin’s nuked-up V12 Vantage S. And then drives it to… Lyme Regis.
The Aston Martin V12 Vantage S is the most ferocious Aston ever made. With 620Nm of peak torque it combines a V12 engine with their lightest engineering, in a package of pure aggression. It can go from 0-60 in 3.7 seconds. Peart, we’ll admit it, you did well. You can come again.
