Details Specification
  • Supplied new to the UAE in left-hand drive with a manual gearbox
  • 6-litre V12 producing 510bhp. Aston's biggest engine shoehorned into their smallest sports car
  • 0-100km/h in a mere 4.2 seconds, this engine, gearbox and chassis work in complete harmony
  • In Cobalt Blue, with a manual gearbox and only 600km, this is a very desirable Aston

In early 2008, Aston Martin CEO Dr. Ulrich Bez confirmed that production of the V12 Vantage would commence in mid-2009, though with the 510bhp engine shared with Aston Martin's other 12-cylinder models rather than the Vantage RS prototype's 580bhp dry-sump racing unit. Based on the V8 Vantage Coupe, the production V12 Vantage is powered by Aston Martin's 6.0-litre V12 as found in the V12 Vanquish, DB9, and DBS models. Getting the V12 to fit the V8 Vantage chassis involved grafting on the engine cradle from the DB9, while the resulting weight increase and more forward weight distribution was accommodated by revised suspension settings. Boasting a kerb weight of 1,695kg (3,737lb), the V12 Vantage accelerates from 0-62mph (100 kph) in 4.2 seconds and can achieve a top speed of 190mph (306kph).

The V12 Vantage’s interior features plush full-grain leather with an Alcantara headlining, power seats and automatic temperature control. Steering wheel-mounted audio controls are standard for the base 160-watt audio system. Alloy dash trim was standard and piano black trim was available. Heated, memory seats, a voice-activated Bluetooth, a 700-watt audio system with Dolby Pro Logic II, and personalised sill plates were amongst the many factory options. Optional carbon fibre and Kevlar composite seats save 37 pounds per car, the instruments and gauges were redesigned to be more legible at speed and carbon fibre and Alcantara were used throughout the cabin to help lighten the car’s overall mass.

This left-hand drive, manual gearbox, V-12 Vantage was supplied new to the UAE and now resides in Dubai. Finished in a stunning shade of Cobalt Blue with a Spectral Blue and Obsidian Black leather and Alcantara interior, the car has covered a mere 600km from new and remains in pristine condition.
