It is likely this will be the last 5.2-litre twin-turbo V12 (the same engine in DB11 and DBS Superleggera) Aston Martin fits into its Vantage and we should expect rattling performance north of 500kW. You can read our full preview on the 2022 Aston Martin Vantage V12 here.
It will be a wild ride for the Vantage which is otherwise downsizing thanks to Mercedes-AMG’s ubiquitous and very well proven 4.0-litre twin-turbo petrol V8, itself good for 500-plus kilowatts in vehicles such as the AMG GT Black Series despite one third fewer cylinders.
But the V12 brings a soundtrack that the V8 can’t touch and in a time of downsizing, let alone electrifying, it is nice to see such large lumps of metal being entrusted for the job in flagship supercars.
Further details, such as production limits and price, which should be small and high respectively, remain to be announced.
