    vantage v12 front

    Owning an Aston Martin would be a dream come true. Featured in few James Bond movie’s, the car had captured a lot of attention all over the world. The Vantage had been so succesful that they dont bother to change the outlook of the car very much. Adding to the prestigeous Vantage family is the Aston Martin Vantage V12.

    The new Aston Martin V12 Vantage is based on the V12 Vantage concept seen exactly 12 months ago. Power comes from a 6.0L V12 engine that pumps out 510-hp with a maximum torque of 420 lb-ft. The 0 to 62 mph run comes in just 4.2 seconds (0 to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds) with a top speed of 190 mph. Performance is further enhanced with race-developed materials and components made of lightweight carbon fiber.

    Unique to the V12 Vantage is a ‘Sport’ button which allows the driver to choose between two powertrain modes, the default ‘normal’ that provides a more progressive throttle response for everyday use, and the Sport ‘ mode that delivers a sharper throttle response together with a sportier exhaust note.

    Visually enticing, the V12 Vantage expresses its performance potential through its purposeful stance created by enhanced aerodynamic and cooling aids optically widening the car, while retaining traditional understated Aston Martin design. Equally inviting, the cosseting interior permits the driver to extract maximum performance ability from the car while also enjoying customary levels of Aston Martin comfort on longer journeys.

    The V12 Vantage will be built at Aston Martin’s global headquarters in Gaydon, Warwickshire where currently DBS , DB9 and V8 Vantage are built. V12 Vantage will stay quite exclusive as only 300-500 examples will be built per year.
