The last with a big “heart”: Aston Martin with a V12 engine

The Supercar Blog has received information from its sources about the upcoming V12 Vantage – the latest Aston Martin with a twelve-cylinder engine. So, according to insiders, the body of the sports car in order to reduce weight will be entirely made of carbon fiber, the model will be released in the amount of 299 pieces and will indeed be equipped with a V12 Speedster engine, deformed from 700 to approximately 650 horsepower.

The last Aston Martin with a V12 engine came out in 2013 and was produced until 2018. This is a V12 Vantage S coupe with an “aspirated” AM28 volume of 5.9 liters, producing 573 horsepower and 620 Nm of torque. At first, the car was offered only with the seven-speed “robot” Sportshift III, and in the spring of 2016 the V12 Vantage S debuted with a manual transmission, in which the second gear was engaged according to the dog-leg principle, like in the current Vantage AMR.

The current Vantage was presented three years ago, and so far it is available only with a V8 4.0 biturbo engine with 510 forces and 685 Nm of torque (625 Nm for the AMR version). However, according to insiders, in March 2022, Aston Martin will unveil a new version of the sports car, equipped with a twelve-cylinder engine from the collector’s Speedster.

On the barquette, the V12 5.2 biturbo engine produces 700 forces and 753 Nm, which go to the rear wheels through an eight-speed ZF automatic transmission and a limited slip differential. According to rumors, the recoil on the Vantage will be reduced to 650 forces. Also, the sports car will receive a carbon fiber body and a small circulation of 299 copies. The expected price is about 300 thousand pounds, or 29.4 million rubles. For Aston, this will be the last model with a V12, as the successor to the Vantage, like the DB11, will lose its internal combustion engine and switch to electric drive.

    Although it is definitely an unfinished replica, I would be interested in contact details, anyway. Maybe this could be an interesting project.
