Aston Martin is giving the V12 Vantage a proper send-off with a ‘final edition’. We had reported about it back in early November, and today we can share some more insider info on the upcoming limited edition V12 Vantage.
According to our sources, Aston Martin will reveal the car in March 2022. However, a private preview has been scheduled for next week. Being the swansong, only 299 units will be produced with an estimated price tag of around £300,000.
At the heart of this limited edition sports car will be a 5.2-liter V12 engine from the V12 Speedster. This engine produces 700 hp and 555 lb-ft of torque, however, in the Vantage, it will be restricted to 650-odd hp. An 8-speed automatic will take up transmission duties.
Now, you may have seen videos of the prototype driving around the Nurburgring. It’s no surprise that the car will get a more distinct and aggressive exterior. We have been told that the V12 Vantage will have a full-carbon body, reducing its overall weight.
The previous V12 Vantage is a highly sought after sports car even today. A monstrous V12 in a car with a small footprint proved to be a great recipe. Unfortunately, the upcoming model will be the last of the breed.
