This is a surefire future classic and already quite a rare and desirable car. It is a 2011 Aston Martin V12 Vantage, finished in Gunmetal Grey with Black Leather interior. It is the desirable 6-Speed Manual version and has the perfect specification nad only 22k Miles from new.
In early 2008, Aston Martin CEO Dr Ulrich Bez confirmed that production of the V12 Vantage would commence in mid-2009, though with the 510bhp engine shared with Aston Martin's other 12-cylinder models rather than the Vantage RS prototype's 580bhp dry-sump racing unit. The classic hot-rodding technique of shoehorning a big engine into a small car is a well-trodden route to increased performance, and so it was with the V12-engined Vantage RS prototype, which combined Aston Martin's largest engine with its most compact model.
Built in just four months by Aston Martin's Special Vehicle Operations department, the first prototype was unveiled by Dr Bez at the official opening of the British manufacturer's new design studio at Gaydon, Warwickshire on 11th December 2007. Dr Bez promised that a production version would be considered should there be sufficient demand; the result was a deluge of enquiries from enthusiasts eager to get their hands on what promised to be Aston Martin's fastest-ever road car. Based on the V8 Vantage Coupé, the production V12 Vantage is powered by Aston Martin's familiar 6.0-litre V12 as found in the V12 Vanquish, DB9, and DBS models.
Getting the V12 to fit the V8 Vantage chassis involved grafting on the engine cradle from the DB9, while the resulting weight increase and more forward weight distribution was accommodated by revised suspension settings. Boasting a kerb weight of 1,695kg (3,737lb), the V12 Vantage accelerates from 0-62 mph in 4.2 seconds and can achieve a top speed of 190 mph.
