V12 Vantage

(2009 - 2013)

Details of the production V12 Vantage started to emerge a couple of weeks prior to the public first view at the Geneva Salon, 2009. It had been a little over a year since the V12 Vantage RS was first shown and the production ready V12 appeared faithful to the concept. Perhaps the most significant change was the dropping of the 'RS' tag following many negative comments by owners and enthusiasts.

What is most fascinating is that the overall weight of the V12 Vantage was only 50kg heavier than the V8 due to significant weight reduction throughout the car. Fitted with the 510bhp version of the V12 (equivalent to DBS spec), the Vantage was claimed able to reach 190mph and 0-60 in 4.2 seconds. The deeper front carbon-fibre airdam, extensive carbon-fibre bonnet louvers, extended sill covers, carbonfibre rear diffuser and larger tail spoiler make it easy to identify the V12 over the regular V8, but I anticipate all that you will need is to hear the exhaust note. The pop-up boot spoiler didn’t make it into production although this feature subsequently did feature on the production One-77.

The V12 Vantage became available in the third quarter of 2009 with a basic price in the UK of £135,000 and only with the conventional six speed manual gearbox as it wasn’t possible to fit the Touchtronic 2. Initially the V12 Vantage was  not available in the North America but following a redesign of the crash structure to meet US requirements, deliveries of the 2011MY V12 Vantage began in October 2010.

The final examples of the V12 Vantage coupe were completed in June 2013 by which time 1200 examples had been built including the Carbon Black, Carbon Edition and even a tiny number of Centenary Special Editions.

The V12 Vantage has been replaced by the more powerful V12 Vantage S model which comes only with the Sportshift III paddle shift gearbox. As the original V12 Vantage has become the last V12 Aston Martin with a full manual gearbox with conventional stick-shift, it will remain a firm favourite with enthusiasts for many years to come.
