Aston Martin will present its V12 Vantage in Geneva

Aston Martin is widely known for its refined and high performance sportscars, but no production series car has ever been so powerful as the new V12 Vantage, a car that is to be presented at the Geneva Motor Show with a 6-litre V12 engine able to produce up to 517 bhp and 570 Nm. Have your first look at this incredible machine below:

This engine will make this V8 Vantage-based supercar run from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.2 s and reach a top speed of 305 km/h. It is not as eye sparkling as the 350 km/h Aston Martin One-77 will be able to reach, but at least the V12 Vantage will be much cheaper, what does not mean it will not be exclusive. Only 1,000 V12 Vantage will ever be built.

Besides the bigger engine, the V12 Vantage also uses carbon fibre and Kevlar parts in order to save weight. Only the seats save up to 17 kg per car. Alcantara is also applied through out the car in order to have a lighter vehicle. All V12 Vantages will come out of Aston Martin headquarters, in Gaydon, Warwickshire, United Kingdom.
