2022 Aston Martin Vantage V12 Engine Teased

2022 Aston Martin Vantage – In relation to the many press releases issued our way by automobile manufacturers both large and small, our task is usually to free us from corporate language and extract the most important aspects from what can feel like a word-swap. But, in the case of the official announcement of the brand new Aston Martin V12 Vantage, it’s a difficult task. The release is in full: “You’ve heard about it. You will certainly hear it coming. V12 Vantage. It’s not just a Limited Edition, it’s a Final Edition. Returning in 2022.”

2022 Aston Martin Vantage Review

Do not worry, we’ve found answers to a few of the questions. While driving the V12 Speedster earlier in the year, we were informed that the underbody structure of the windshield-free lightweight effectively joined the front that is the DBS Superleggera with the rear of the Vantage Roadster. We can be sure that this V12 Vantage is based on the same foundations and is likely to be a similar hefty model of DBS’s twin-turbocharged 5.2-liter V-12 engine. We’d like to believe it’s in the same 690 horsepower tuning.

Engine

Aston director Tobias Moers has previously confirmed that the V-12 doesn’t have any long-term plans for the brand. It will be switching entirely to AMG-sourced engines. The official release’s description of the Vantage being a “final edition” suggests that the Vantage could be the last to the iconic motor, which despite being heavily modified and turbocharged at the time that the DB11 was introduced in 2016, remains closely linked to the V-12 that was developed at the time Ford controlled the business and introduced it in 1999. With the same powerful engine that was used in the previous V12 Vantage was always one of the most impressive models in the line, with the 510 horsepower naturally aspirated V-12 engine with an automatic gearbox. This combination was a little less exciting in 2010 than today. There’s no possibility of Aston making the same combination again as insiders have told C/D that the V-8 powered Vantage is the final car Aston offers with the clutch pedal. We’re sure that the previous Vantage V12’s $181,000 cost is a hefty price when compared with the price tag being offered for the brand new car.
