Aston Martin is unleashing another high-powered machine by introducing the very last V12 Vantage.
You’re looking at the most powerful Vantage to ever be fitted with a combustion engine, a twin-turbo 5.2-litre improving the car’s power-to-weight ratio by more than 20 per cent compared to the V8 model.
Producing 690 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and 753 Newton-meters (555 pound-feet) of torque from 1,800 rpm, the V12 Vantage has the juicy numbers for the model’s last hurrah. The generous use of carbon fibre includes the front bumper, hood, front fenders, and even the side sills. The deck lid and bumper are also made from carbon fibre at the back.
The “diet” also consists of a lightweight battery and a newly developed stainless-steel exhaust with centrally mounted dual tips. It shaves off 7.2 kilograms (15.8 pounds) compared to the standard setup and has been specially tuned to deliver a more aggressive soundtrack in keeping with the V12 Vantage’s status as a flagship version.
The V12 Vantage will max out at 200 mph (322 km/h) after hitting 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.5 seconds and 60 mph (96.5 km/h) in 3.4 seconds.
Already sold out, the Aston Martin V12 Vantage will be limited to only 333 cars and the first deliveries to customers are scheduled for the second quarter of this year.
