2023 Aston Martin V12 Vantage Marks the End of an Era

Aston has revealed the last V12 Vantage it will ever make, bringing this unique line of fantastically over-endowed small sportscars to a close.  It will be limited to just 333 cars globally and comes only as a coupe.

The Aston Martin V12 Vantage’s twin-turbo V-12 engine will make 690 horsepower and 555 pound-feet of torque. Top speed is said to be 200 miles an hour, and 60 mph arrives in 3.4 seconds, hustled along by the ZF eight-speed shared with the rest of the company’s sports cars. All of this makes it the most powerful V12 Vantage ever built, according to Aston.

The V12 Vantage features a Carbon Ceramic Braking (CCB) system as standard. At the front 410mm x 38mm discs with 6-piston calipers, while at the rear 360mm x 32mm discs are paired with 4-piston calipers. The bodywork of the car has been widened by some 40mm new to accommodate a wide-track chassis optimized for cornering performance and stability. The grille’s bigger. There’s a new bonnet incorporating a ‘horse shoe’ design that pays tribute to the mad GT12. A new side profile brings with it a single-piece sill inspired by motorsport.

Inside, the V12 Vantage features the recognizable layout of the current Vantage. The standard seats are trimmed with additional quilting, while an optional lightweight buckets with exposed carbon shells and manual adjustment these will save another 16 pounds of mass. There are plenty of other options options such as a carbon fiber steering wheel, painted trim, and color anodized accents via Aston’s Q service.

Production of the V12 Vantage will start in Q1 of 2022, with first deliveries scheduled to begin during Q2 2022.
