The V12 Vantage showcases a color combination reminiscent of the recently seen BMW M5. Its body is coated in an expensive violet paint and adorned with striking yellow accents. However, one could argue that these two colors simply do not complement each other well.
Since the introduction of the new V12 Vantage, we have already witnessed some impressive models. This particular specimen could have been perfect without the vibrant yellow details. Unfortunately, these details somewhat detract from the overall picture.
Indeed, this is the last iteration of this popular Aston Martin. With the production of the Aston Martin V12 Vantage strictly limited to 333 units worldwide, this final edition marks the end of an epic era in a fitting manner. As the ultimate expression of extreme performance and driving thrill, this remarkable machine combines breathtaking top speed and brilliant handling with spectacular design and enviable exclusivity: an extremely tempting proposition.
The engine is the centerpiece of every Aston Martin, and never is this more true than in this fastest and most powerful Vantage ever built. With a power output of 700 hp at 6,500 rpm and a torque of 753 Nm from just 1,800 to 6,000 rpm, the 5.2-liter V12 with Quad-Cam 60-degree rotation offers an intoxicating combination of impressive power in the lower and mid-range and scorching performance at higher rpm. The V12 Vantage accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds and reaches a top speed of 320 km/h. Thanks to the driving force of this outstanding engine and the extensive use of weight-saving materials throughout the vehicle, the V12 Vantage boasts a power-to-weight ratio of 390 hp per ton, an increase of more than 20% compared to the V8-powered Vantage.
