The original V12 Vantage concept was unveiled to guests at the opening of the Aston Martin Design Studio in December 2007. Continuing the marque’s impressive record of bringing concepts through to production, Aston Martin engineers brought V12 Vantage to market in a staggering 12 months.
Every component of V12 Vantage was designed to deliver pure driver enjoyment. Benefiting from race-developed materials and components and featuring lightweight carbon fibre, performance and agility had been tuned for the ultimate driving experience.
In the transformation from V8 to V12 power, the engineers and designers at Aston Martin forensically examined and enhanced every area of the car, from suspension and brakes to aerodynamics, cooling and lightweight carbon fibre components. The result remained unmistakably Vantage but pulled and slashed into an exaggerated form with intense visual impact.
