I probably wouldn’t either, but if the new Aston Martin V12 Vantage belonged to a drug kingpin, well, who knows? This has got to be just about the sexiest GT ever, and it’s also long on technical sophistication. You can find a full set of photos here and here.
With its very smooth 6-liter V12 power, the Vantage will get to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds in unbelievable style and comfort. Drivers can toggle between an everyday driving mode and a sport mode that gives better throttle response and a “sportier exhaust note.” Switchable Dynamic Stability Control permits better handling. And it has carbon ceramic brakes, a six-speed manual transmission (no automatic will be offered), and a top speed of 190 mph.
Delivery begins this fall, and price is yet to be announced. You can be sure it ain’t gonna come cheap.
What’s the most desirable element about the V12 Vantage, in your opinion?
