At the end of the Vantage’s construction period, Aston Martin spoke about the breakup for the first time. Not from the car itself, but from the V12 under the hood. In the current generation, the British have once again paired the mighty 5.2-liter engine behind the front axle and limited it all to 333 copies.
It’s all sold out, maybe because the Aston Martin V12 Vantage is the last chance to buy this new type of car.
700 PS, Drehmoment 753 Nm, Topspeed 322 km/h
The Biturbo sends a smooth 700 hp to the rear wheels, and an impressive 753 Newton meters of torque. Aston Martin is aiming for a top speed of 322 km/h, and the hundred mark should fall in 3.5 seconds.
To safely bring all these performance values to the road, the developers have drawn from the whole in terms of the chassis and, most importantly, the aerodynamics: the wide body accommodates a track that is 40 millimeters wider, and there is a mechanical limitation-slip differential on the rear axle. The wing package provides 204 kilograms of downforce at top speed.
V12 Vantage will start in summer 2022
The lightweight exhaust system saves 7.2 kg compared to the normal Vantage, the carbon fiber bucket holds another 7.3 kg. The carbon-ceramic brake system with 410 discs reduces weight by 23 kilos and also improves stability when slowing down.
