Limited to just 100 cars, the special edition Vantage GT12 is a car that blurs the lines between road and race track. Finding its roots firmly in the world of motorsport, the Vantage GT12 is the most performance focused and uncompromising Vantage to date.
Proving that motorsport runs within Aston Martin’s veins, this is the ultimate expression of Vantage. Having seen incredible success at the very top level of GT3 racing all over the world, Vantage is a car thoroughly deserving of an exclusive edition as special as Vantage GT12.
Significantly restyled, it is plain to see where the Vantage GT12 gains its inspiration. Demonstrating an extreme aerodynamic package, this special edition Vantage is both lower and wider than any of its siblings within the Vantage family.
Implementing the lessons learned through Vantage’s GT3 career, the Vantage GT12 wears a motorsport inspired aerodynamic package that includes a prominent rear wing and a pronounced front splitter. Designed through Aston Martin’s cutting edge racing program, these striking features go further than just creating an aggressive aesthetic and help to offer increased downforce and unrivalled performance on both road and track.
Employing an extensive use of carbon fibre both inside and out, the engineers and designers at Aston Martin have worked tirelessly to eliminate unnecessary mass wherever possible. By utilising the material to construct everything from the front wings to the door casings and offering options such as a polycarbonate rear window, the determination of the team has paid off with the Vantage GT12 weighing in at just 1,565kg.
Underneath the stunning carbon fibre bonnet of the Vantage GT12 sits a new 6.0-litre V12 engine that has undergone rigorous re-engineering. Producing 600ps and 461lb ft of torque, this bespoke V12 will take the Vantage GT12 from 0-60mph in just 3.5 seconds and on to a top speed 185mph.
As the extreme downforce package on the exterior would suggest, Vantage GT12 is about more than top speed; much like the GT3 cars that inspire it, this is a car that concerns itself with both straight-line speed and cornering pace. Demonstrating unrivalled composure through any corner, the Vantage GT12 offers supreme driveability on both road and race track; easily shattering lap times
Complementing the aerodynamic package to help with this incredible agility, the Vantage GT12 wears Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres. Offering the highest levels of grip, these fantastic tyres complete the package and assist the car in offering greater levels of grip and stability at higher speeds.
As with the exterior, the interior of the Vantage GT12 has undergone a complete redesign. Assisting in the car’s 100kg weight-saving over the V12 Vantage S, there is now an entirely carbon fibre centre stack and race-derived carbon fibre seats.
Further enhancing the racing car feel of the Vantage GT12, Alcantara joins carbon fibre throughout and a touch-sensitive control array has been utilised. For Vantage GT12 owners who wish to make their car even more special, Aston Martin’s personalisation service ‘Q by Aston Martin’ are able to offer a whole range of bespoke options that can be added to the car to make their car truly one-of-one.
