The Aston Martin Vantage is one of the most beautiful models of the British firm. As you may know, it is currently only on sale with the Mercedes-AMG 4.0-liter biturbo V8 block, specifically tuned for the requirements of the Vantage. However, we already know that next year we will meet a Aston Martin V12 Vantage.
On an aesthetic level, the previews reveal that the V12 Vantage will have a fixed rear spoiler, similar to the Vantage F1 Edition, but a little smaller. On the front it will show a redesigned bumper with a slightly larger grill, vertical intakes and a more prominent two-part divider. Of course, he promises not to disappoint us.
This week Aston Martin has released a new trailer for the upcoming V12 Vantage. This time we have the opportunity to listen to your engine thanks to an Instagram post. Judging from what we can see and hear, the V12 promises to be even more spectacular than the V8. The bad news is that it will be the farewell to combustion in the Vantage.
Deep inside the Aston Martin V12 Vantage
Some time after we meet the V12 Vantage, the automaker will start to electrify your vehicle. The original V12 Vantage featured the same 5.9-liter naturally aspirated V12 as the DBS. However, Aston Martin’s flagship engine is now a 5.2-liter biturbo V12. It will be the one we see in the new model and it will be more powerful.
According to the first reports, the engine of the new V12 Vantage will follow the line of what we can find in the limited edition Aston Martin Speedster. In this model, the Twin-Turbo V12 engine delivers a maximum power of 700 hp Y 753 Nm of torque. It is paired with an 8-speed ZF automatic transmission with a limited-slip differential.
This transmits the performance to the rear wheels. The V12 Speedster can cover the 0 to 100 km / h in 3.5 seconds, as well as reaching speeds of up to 300 km / h. We would expect that, if it is the same power, the V12 Vantage will be able to offer us very similar figures, in any case, to find out we will have to wait until 2022.
