With production strictly limited to just 100 examples, the new model combines all of Aston Martin’s learning from its years of sports car competition around the globe to produce its most performance focused road-going Vantage. Only 100 Aston Martin Vantage GT12s will be made. Its ultra-wide, race-inspired bodywork is made from carbon fiber and the 5.9-litre V12 engine develops 592bhp. It’’s the most potent road-going Vantage that’s ever been created. It’s a car Aston Martin has wanted to create for years: a lighter, lower, faster, ultimate version of the V12 Vantage, built to monster the racetrack while remaining a well-rounded road car. Weight reduction comes from the use of exotic materials throughout, including aluminium, magnesium, titanium (for the exhaust system) and carbon fiber. The latter’s used for the propshaft, and the entirety of bodywork. The increased grip comes from altered suspension geometry and spring rates, along with recalibrated electronic control for the adaptive dampers. The Aston Martin Vantage GT12 is a wonderful, characterful machine. Tractable on the road, and addictive on a track with beautiful design details - it’s the car you would love to own and drive.
