The biggest changes Aston Martin made to the Vantage involve the steering and brakes. Steering is quicker and more responsive and the brakes are bigger and stronger. The Vantage is a fairly heavy car but these changes make it feel surpsingly light and nimble, especially at higher speeds.

There are cosmetic changes, too, that give it the more muscular appearnce of the higher-performance Vantage S.
