Aston Martin V12 Vantage, first fruits for the few

Cars News

The new Aston Martin V12 Vantage could be one of the last sports cars of its kind, that is, with a 100% internal combustion engine. Moreover, the exquisiteness of the project passes through the combination of the more compact body of the English brand with the nobility of the V12 split, a pearl for those who love connecting rods and pistons. A pearl for the few, moreover: just 333 lucky people will be able to grab an example of the British supercar. It is almost superfluous to specify that the entire production is already sold-out.

The testosterone treatment compared to the eight-cylinder version (which has narrower trackways of 40 mm), as well as a “bad girl” aesthetic, also includes a stiffened and lightened body with composite materials. The rest is done by the dedicated aerodynamics – note the huge rear wing, which generates up to 204 kg of rear load – and the rumble of the 5.2-liter V12 twin-turbo engine, 700 hp of maximum power and 753 Nm of torque, good for a 0-100km / h sprint of less than 3.5 seconds (1,795kg dry weight).

Numbers kept at bay by a braking system with carbon-ceramic discs, bites from six-piston calipers at the front and four-piston at the rear, hidden by 21-inch alloy wheels, rubberized with Michelin Pilot 4S tires in the sizes 275/35 in front and 315 / 30 behind. The transmission, on the other hand, is entrusted to the eight-speed automatic transmission, connected to the rear mechanical self-locking differential, which distributes the power on the drive axle.
