Aston Martin V12 Vantage, 517hp, 420lb ft torque revealed

Well Aston revealed the V12 Vantage. Unfortunately it is not as loony as the V12 Vantage RS concept which was relatively light with 600hp under the bonnet. This one has the same engine as the DBS in a smaller better handling chassis.. 300 to be produced per year, with around 1000 to be produced in total. Sounds like a very interesting car especially as it should be evidently cheaper than the DBS as well.

"380 kW / 517 PS), and 570 Nm (420 lb ft) of torque with a top speed of 190 mph (305 km/h) and 0-62 mph (0-100 kp/h) time of 4.2 seconds."
