In 2018, Aston Martin’s iconic Vantage V600 is reborn through a customer-commissioned limited run powered by an upgraded 6.0-litre naturally aspirated V12 engine. Strictly limited to 14 examples, seven coupes and seven roadsters, all dubbed ‘Triple V,’ this handcrafted series arrives later this year.
Aston Martin’s 2018 V12 Vantage V600 combines the modern performance of a muscle sportscar with timeless styling, creating the ultimate analogue Vantage. It features a 7-speed manual transmission for an engaging driving experience, and front and rear dual independent wishbone suspension with 3-stage adaptive damping for a sublime ride in all conditions.
The V12 Vantage V600 has a commanding road presence and aggressive styling thanks to its full-carbon fibre exterior, re-imagined side-strake and a bulging bonnet hinting at the power that lies beneath. A unique darkened grille provides maximum air and cooling while the car’s rear signals its 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.
Inside is a study 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.
Marek Reichman, Vice President & Chief Creative Officer of Aston Martin says buyers can personalise the vehicle for a one-of-a-kind driving experience. “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.”
The 2018 Aston Martin V12 Vantage V600 is available on request with deliveries taking place in Q3 2018.
