This car is powered by the same V12 as the DBS, but it is lighter, stiffer and more agile than the DBS, and therefore it’s faster. The V12 Vantage has 510 bhp (380 kW / 517 PS), and 420 lb ft (570 Nm) of torque which gives it top speed of 190 mph (305 km/h) and a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) time of 4.2 seconds.

Aston Martin Chief Executive Officer, Dr Ulrich Bez said: “This is the ultimate performance interpretation of the Vantage range, combining our most agile model with our most powerful engine.
