Aston Martin has not yet completely turned the page on the ancient platform, “H”, that was present on all the models of the brand since already more than ten years. The V12 Vantage is being offered at the rate of 197 000 €.
There are already more than two years, we took the wheel of theAston Martin V12 Vantage S Roadster in us, saying, somewhere, that this model was no longer going to live a long time with the arrival of the next generation. 28 months later, it is clear that Aston Martin is struggling to let go of his classics. The DB11 is, of course, right there in the catalog, but it is also the case of the V12 Vantage S.
A model is always engaging, even if, at some angles, it took a hell of a slap in the visual and technical vis-à-vis the DB11. Inside, for a start, with this presentation, frankly, outdated compared to what is done today at Porsche, Ferrari or Lamborghini (the flying Aston always being too “simplistic”, not to say anything else !).
Fortunately, the technical file catches up with all of this with a V12 5.9 573 hp to the vocalization characteristics. And although the weight is relatively a result, the V12 Vantage S is doing relatively well at the time.
