Details of the production V12 Vantage started to emerge a couple of weeks prior to the public first view at the Geneva Salon, 2009. It had been a little over a year since the V12 Vantage RS was first shown and the production ready V12 appeared faithful to the concept. The Vantage was claimed able to reach 190mph and 0-60 in 4.2 seconds. The deeper front carbon-fibre airdam, extensive carbon-fibre bonnet louvres, extended sill covers, carbonfibre rear diffuser and larger tail spoiler make it easy to identify the V12 over the regular V8, but I anticipate all that you will need is to hear the exhaust note. Only 1199 examples have been built.
This particular car is in splendid condition and is a 2012 model year, first registered in September 2011 and the current personalised registration number will be replaced with an 61 plate for the new owner. It has covered a mere 21,000 miles from new and comes with a complete Aston Martin service history. At the point of ordering the car, almost every available option was specified which includes satellite navigation, climate control, front and rear parking sensors, front and rear parking cameras, auto dimming interior mirror, heated sports memory seats, cruise control, Diamond turned alloy wheels, 700w Audio system, iPod connectivity, carbon fibre trims, carbon-ceramic brakes, powerfold mirrors and Tracker anti-theft. Very realistically priced at £79,995 for one in this condition.
