This Is When The New Aston Martin V12 Vantage Will Debut

Still, this will be a substantial upgrade over the previous V12 Vantage S, which produced 563 hp from a naturally aspirated 6.0-liter V12. Compared to the regular V8 model, the new V12 Vantage will look more vicious thanks to its prominent spoiler, vented hood, and dual centrally-mounted exhaust tips. According to the source, it will also have a full carbon fiber body, so it will also be significantly lighter – a key element to help offset the V12’s additional weight.Its return will be bittersweet, however. In the teaser, Aston Martin referred to the V12 Vantage as a “Final Edition,” implying this will be the last-ever V12-powered from the carmaker before it embraces full-on electrification. Let’s hope this new Vantage gives Aston Martin’s venerable V12 the send-off it deserves.
