This car is a wolf in sheep's clothing and is derived from the Porsche GT3 RS-rivaling GT12. With a crazy 592bhp V12 displacing 5.9L hidden inside the hood of a small body sports car, it is hard to assume that this will ever rival an Aventador S or an 812 Superfast. But wait, no, this thing is unironically supposed to rival the Huracán LP580-2 and F-Type SVR.

Personally, I think it is more suitable to compare this to the Corvette Grand Sport Z07 and the entry-level Viper SRT, and maybe you could add in the Shelby GT350R Mustang and Lexus RC F Track Edition. Sure, the Mustang and RC F aren't exactly what you'd call "competitors" for a car made by Aston Martin, but most importantly, these four sports cars have one particular thing in common: all big-displacement, naturally aspirated and rear-wheel drive monsters being this super-close to supercar territory!!!

This car is basically a Vanquish S that's lost weight. Not really just any Vantage.

That said, I love my Vanquish.

This car definitely is the quickest naturally aspirated engined V12 Aston Martin bar the sophisticated ones like the Aston Martin One-76 (1 got destroyed unfortunately) ever.

But it was never officially tested, nor was the Aston Martin Vantage GT12. And that's a shame. Atleast that I'm aware of anyway.

The Aston Martin Vantage V12 perhaps the S model, was. This car would beat that time(s).

The Aston Martin One-77 was never tested either officially, and that's ****ing an absolute tragedy, it's actually a disgrace in a way. The top speed was verified and rumours of acceleration were, but nothing was published. One of my absolute favourite cars. Imperious.

But I'm sure something independent will turn up. ;)

Quote>"Aston Martin has yet to release performance specs, but given the extra oomph and the lighter carbon-fiber body, the V600 should be quicker than the standard V12 Vantage S. The latter needs 3.9 seconds to hit 62 mph from a standing start, so the V600 could achieve the benchmark in around 3.7 seconds. Top speed likely remains unchanged at 205 mph."

Quote>"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."
