Aston Martin V12 Vantage
Aston Martin released a concept vehicle based on the V8 Vantage on December 11, 2007, to mark the launch of their very own site office. They used the AM11 V12 engine from the DBS in the V12 Vantage RS, which generated 510 bhp (380 kW; 517 PS) and 570 Nm (420 lb-ft) of torque.

History of Aston Martin V12 Vantage
Aston Martin V12 Vantage (2007)
Ulrich Benz introduced the V12 Vantage idea before a few visitors in 2007 and the actual vehicle in 2009 at the Geneva Motor Show. The product was a rocket car that could hit 62 mph (100 kph) in under 4.2 seconds using the most refined chassis from the V8 Vantage and the V12 engine. For a long time, it was considered the most excellent car ever manufactured by the struggling British company, which shared its heritage with Jaguar and Ford and was ultimately free of the blue-oval trademark in 2007. The Aston Martin N24 race car influenced the hood's carbon-fiber vents and side sills. Powerfully menacing with its broad shell-shaped grille and lip spoiler underneath the lower air intake, that's the V12 Vantage for you. Raked windscreen and short tail added to the athletic appeal. The interior has a racing vibe, especially with the optional carbon-fiber fixed seats. The instrument panel has been redesigned with crisper dials to help the user concentrate on the car's data.
Aston Martin V12 Vantage S (2013 - 2018)
The 2013 Aston Martin Vantage S is based on Henrik Fisker's 2005 concept but with only mechanical parts. The car resembled its predecessor. The hood has many vents to assist cool the huge V12 engine. Until the One-77 hypercar, the 2013 AM Vantage S was the fastest Aston Martin ever produced. Not a GT like its Vanquish brother. It has CNC-machined combustion chambers and thin camshafts to minimize inertia. Some of the modifications were made to the 6.0-liter AM28 engine by Aston Martin. The Vantage S's gearbox was co-developed with Oerlikon Graziano. With the new gearbox, they saved 25 kg (55 lbs). The transmission was also mounted on the rear axle, reducing the weight at the back.
Aston Martin V12 Vantage (2018)
The Aston Martin V12 Vantage follows the path of the VH Vantage. The new V600 represents the formal pullout of the famous VH platform in Aston Martins with two doors. The Vantage V600 is equipped with an improved 6.0-liter naturally aspirated V12 engine, delivering 600PS. The 7-speed manual transmission keeps you interested, while the front and rear twin flexible wishbone suspension with 3-stage dynamic damping keeps you comfortable in every circumstance.
New Aston Martin V12 Vantage (2022)
Aston Martin's planned 2022 V12 Vantage has been observed testing at the Nurburgring before its introduction. Over the last December of 2021, Aston Martin has revealed the car a few times. Rumors say that the company will only produce 299 units of this new V12 Vantage. There's a visible front spoiler lip, possibly as a component of a bigger aerodynamic system. The flagship model also gets a redesigned grille with horizontal slats and vertical air intakes bordered by horizontal slats.
The prices vary based on the manufacturing year and its upgrades. However, It's possible to buy a V12 Vantage for between $105,000 and $130,000 without a limited-edition series. A Vantage Roadster, V12 Vantage S Convertible, or a stunning coupe may be yours for this price.
V12 Vantage (2007)
The company emphasized the aggressive appearance of the car's sloped roofline and short rear end. The available carbon-fiber fixed seats provide a racing aesthetic to the interior. They redesigned the instrument panel's dials to be even more legible so that the driver can concentrate solely on the data provided by the vehicle. Aston Martin fitted a V12 engine from the DBRS9 racing under the hood. The company might have achieved only 110 lbs (50 kg) heavier than its V8 relative with specific lighter components despite a 220lbs (100kg) larger engine.
V12 Vantage S (2013 - 2018)
The same features apply to the V12 Vantage S as the previous model. However, the car's interior was unique, including a minimalist design with high-end aluminum, carbon fiber, and Alcantara components. The car had luxury features for a relaxing journey, but they primarily designed it for performance driving. It was faster than the Vanquish because it weighed less than 200 kg (440 lbs).
V12 Vantage (2018)
As of 2018, Aston Martin has revamped the Vantage to replace the existing model—which has been on the market for 13 years. Surprisingly, the British company resurrected the Vantage V600 for a limited release. The V600 is based on the 13-year-old Vantage, although it looks nothing like the discontinued sports vehicle Aston Martin. The larger Vantage AMR grille modified the conventional front grille. Rather than horizontal slats, the intake is a small mesh. They added a smaller grille and dynamic splitter to the lower bumper. The darker grilles complement the body's gray color. The new front fascia has a large hump on the engine bonnet and round vents on both sides. They also made the front fender strakes and fender flares stronger than ever. Aston Martin also incorporated new center-lock wheels. They added an aggressive diffuser to the rear fascia, untouched above the bumper. The carbon-fiber piece now has four exhausts. The whole body is carbon fiber to increase exclusivity and minimize weight.
The Vantage V600 is powered by the AM28 V12 engine from the Vantage GT12, which produces 592 bhp (441 kW; 600 PS) and torque of 625 Nm (461 lb-ft). The engine is paired to a 7-speed manual transmission unique to this model. V12 Vantage S might reach 205 mph thanks to the 573 PS Aston Martin AM28 6.0-litre V12 engine with current Bosch performance tuning. Aston Martin re-engineered airflow technology to boost cooling and engine efficiency to accommodate the increased power from the AM28.
Aston Martin released a concept vehicle based on the V8 Vantage on December 11, 2007. Aston Martin's CEO confirmed manufacturing of the V12 Vantage RS would begin in the middle of 2009 at the beginning of 2008. Aston Martin revealed the production model of the car, dubbed the V12 Vantage, in 2009, following the debut of development models in April 2008.
