Aston Martin Confirms V12 Vantage Special for North and South America

In response to what the famous British sports car maker describes as "unprecedented customer demand", Aston Martin has decided to bring its V12 Vantage special to North and South American markets.

Even though prices are to be confirmed in the coming weeks, the V12 Vantage is available to order now with deliveries to the Americas expected to commence during the fourth quarter of the year.

Along with the standard version of the V12 Vantage, Aston Martin will also offer the strictly limited Carbon Black special edition that features a bespoke Carbon Black metallic paint, unique alloy wheels and special trim options.

Originally launched in 2009 at the Geneva Motor Show, the V12 Vantage is based on the V8 Vantage model. It is powered by a 6.0-liter V12 engine producing 510 bhp (380 kW / 517 PS), and 420 lb ft (570 Nm) of torque that propels the British sports car to 62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 4.2 seconds and on to a top speed of 190mph or 305km/h.
