Aston Martin V12 Vantage V600


THE LEGEND LIVES ON: ASTON MARTIN V600 REBORN


  • Spirit of the 1998 V8 Vantage V600 breathes again in a limited run customer commission V12 Vantage V600
  • ‘Q by Aston Martin – Commission’ to produce strictly limited run of seven coupes and seven roadsters
  • V12 Vantage V600 equipped with 600PS naturally-aspirated V12 & seven-speed manual gearbox
  • Last of the ‘VH’ Gaydon two-door sportscars

Wednesday 9 May 2018, Gaydon: The legendary Aston Martin Vantage V600 has been reborn in the form of a customer commissioned limited run of all-new breathtakingly beautiful Aston Martin V12 Vantage V600s, inspired and influenced by the original V8 Vantage V600.

In 1998, Aston Martin offered its customers the most extreme iteration of its Vantage sportscar, the supercharged V8 Vantage V600. Delivering 600bhp, the model was one of the most powerful sports cars of its time, a car of extremes.

Fast forward 20 years and the luxury British carmaker’s unique personalisation service Q by Aston Martin received a customer commission for a strictly limited run of 14 new Aston Martin V12 Vantage V600s. Split between seven coupes and seven roadsters and dubbed the ‘Triple V’, this unique series of manual V12 V600s have been commissioned, designed and handcrafted without compromise.

Underpinned by the previous-generation ‘VH’ Vantage, the 2018 Aston Martin V12 Vantage V600 combines the modern performance of a muscle sportscar with timeless styling, creating the ultimate analogue Vantage.

Marek Reichman, Vice President & Chief Creative Officer Aston Martin said, “This is precisely why we created our ‘Q by Aston Martin – Commission’ service. Our customers can create truly bespoke sports cars by personally collaborating with myself and Aston Martin’s design team. The V600 name remains a classic in Aston Martin’s heritage and I’m proud to see it adorn the V12 Vantage V600 once again”.

Powered by an upgraded version of Aston Martin’s impressive 6.0-litre naturally aspirated V12 engine, producing 600PS, the Vantage V600 is designed to excite the senses. A 7-speed manual transmission provides an engaged driving experience, while the front and rear dual independent wishbone suspension – featuring 3-stage adaptive damping – produces a sublime ride in all conditions.

The V12 Vantage V600 has commanding road presence and utilises aggressive styling cues across its full-carbon fibre exterior. Like the 90s classic, the V600 utilises a re-imagined side-strake and a bulging bonnet that hints towards the power that lies underneath. A unique darkened grille provides maximum air and cooling to the model’s characterful V12, while the car’s rear continues to signal towards the car’s powerful nature.

An all-new carbon fibre diffuser provides the backdrop for an attention grabbing quad exhaust system.  The external look of the V600 is further distinguished by bespoke centre-lock forged and machined aluminium wheels.

The interior of the Vantage V600 is a study in the beauty of carbon fibre and dark anodised aluminium.  The lightweight seats have an all-new perforation pattern, carbon fibre centre console and bespoke driver information dials. A hand-crafted saddle leather centre armrest provides comfort and style within ergonomic reach of the machined-from-solid gear shifter.

The 2018 Aston Martin V12 Vantage V600 is available on request with deliveries taking place in Q3 2018.

Corvette Poised For Detroit Debut

Sources claim to watch Detroit. Not saying Corvette, only hinting on a huge surprise. Well, it terms of size the Escalade is huge. However they say size is not all that matters.

So...Corvette it is. 
Already seen the interior. So far it looks to be Corvette. At least after looking at the emblem. And the design. A bit like a C7 mixed with Stingray Concept and Millennium Falcon or something. 
So...surprise
At least act like you will be surprised. Didn't hear from us.  But you know what, don't act, surprised you will be.
You will be.

Niels van Roij Design shows first sketches of the Breadvan Hommage

The London-based design house Niels van Roij Design recently announced that it will make a contemporary interpretation of the legendary 'Ferrari Breadvan'. This unique hand-built car from the sixties, will now have a successor based on the Ferrari 550 Maranello.


"The choice to go for this icon of the 90s was logical," says car designer Niels van Roij. "The 550 is the first Ferrari in 24 years (since the Daytona) which was built in the same way as the 250 GT at the time; a large V12 in front with a manual gearbox. It gives us a unique opportunity to base our interpretation of the legendary Breadvan on a car with a corresponding DNA."


Meanwhile, the saw has gone through the donor car and the back of the 550 has been separated from the rest of the vehicle. Van Roij: "We want to preserve the gentleman racer look of the Maranello and also incorporate the strong graphic characteristics of the Breadvan into the design. Think of the air intakes, unmistakably i…
