Aston Martin has released the first teaser of the upcoming V12 Vantage. According to the company, it won’t be just a limited edition but a ‘Final Edition’. The car will make its debut next year.
There have been reports indicating that the V12-powered Vantage could be called the Vantage V12 RS. However, it seems that may not be the case. Either way, the car is likely to be powered by a 5.2-liter V12 engine from the V12 Speedster. It produces 700 hp and 555 lb-ft of torque and comes mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. We have been told that in the Vantage, this motor could be restricted to 670 hp.
The 2022 V12 Vantage is expected to get a more aggressive styling package. We’ve already seen a wider body with a vented bonnet, prominent splitter, extended rear spoiler and twin-centre exhausts on prototypes. The interior will be equally sporty.
According to our source, production of V12 Vantage is likely to be capped at 299 units. It is estimated to cost around £270,000.
