  • [NEWS] V600: The Aston Martin V12 Vantage Last-Hurrah

    The new Aston Martin Vantage has been revealed for a while now, but it seems that Aston Martin still wants to have fun with their last-gen Vantage, at least for one last time, and we don't mind at all, especially if it was the V12. Here it is, the Vantage V600:



    The last-gen V12 Vantage was the best of the breed; a standard Vantage came with a V8, but Aston realised their sportiest car of the lot needed a power upgrade, especially for the particularly unhinged and power-crazed customers, so they fitted their naturally-aspirated 6.0L V12 from their bigger cars. Lovely.



    As a final-hurrah and a final goodbye for this rather bonkers Aston, they created the V600. Limited to just 14 cars, the V600 has a redesigned front grille, bodykit, as well as an aggressive looking bonnet. All the body panels are made from carbon fibre, and beneath all that sits their N/A V12 producing 592 horsepower, around 30 horsepower more than their V12 Vantage S, and almost a hundred more than their current-gen Vantage. We like.

    The inside is also mostly carbon fibre, with little tweaks here and there on the interior to make it look more aggressive. Also, a 7-speed manual is what you get, so don't expect this to be a relaxing cruiser.



    Only 14 cars are being made, seven of them will be coupes and the other seven are being made as roadsters. Surprisingly, not all of them have been sold, but we highly doubt there's any big Aston Martin fans in Indonesia that would want this limited-run Vantage that possibly costs a fortune (prices are on-request only).



    However, look at it this way: this is the last of the 'VH' platform Vantage, and it's very likely to be the last V12 Vantage that's going to be made, and even if they do make another V12 Vantage, we're pretty sure it won't be naturally aspirated. So, interested?
