V8 Vantage Goes V12

Aston Martin V12 Vantage

Every supercar enthusiast is supposed to own a V12-powered ride at least once in their lifetime and Aston Martin have just provided another reason to do so. That is, the new V12 Vantage which is set to debut at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show.

Shoehorning the V12 into a V8 Vantage chassis isn’t new idea. Aston Martin launched the concept Vantage RS two years ago. Now the production version is going be available with the same 510 bhp engine from James Bond’s DBS.

While this new Vantage now competes for market share with the DBS, both will be eclipsed by the Aston Martin One-77 later this year. In any case we might see two Astons in our top 10 supercars of 2009.
