Watch The Hardcore Aston Martin Vantage V12 RS Tear Up The Nurburgring

At around five minutes into the above video, the V12-powered Aston Martin Vantage prototype can be seen racing around the Nurburgring along with other prototypes including the new hybrid Aston Martin DBX. Sadly, the sound is muffled, so we don’t get to hear its V12 powertrain roar very clearly.However, there are some noticeable modifications that suggest this Vantage doesn’t have a standard V8 under the hood. The fenders are much wider than the regular Vantage, there are extra air intakes, and the hood has been modified, which suggests the prototype has a much larger engine.
