Aston Martin has revealed its V12 Vantage to the public for the first time at the Geneva motor show.
The 6.0-litre engine in the Aston Martin V12 Vantage produces 510bhp and 420lb ft, enough to power the £140k sports car to 60mph in 4.1sec and reach a top speed of 190mph.
Weighing in at 1680kg, the new Vantage is 87kg heavier than the V8 model, but weight saving has reduced the V12’s gain in girth to just 50kg over the V8 Vantage.
In addition to the revised suspension, new grille and bigger brakes, the V12 Vantage gets modified dials, carbon fibre door pulls and an Alcantara-trimmed wheel. Buyers can also specify carbon fibre and Kevlar seats to further save weight.
