Aston Martin to Bring Back the V12 Vantage in 2022

Aston Martin will bring back the V12 Powered Vantage for the last time in 2022

  • This means Aston Martin will put its biggest engine in its smallest car

  • The last V12 Vantage was discontinued in 2018

  • This is the final edition of the V12 Vantage, before the brand goes electric

Aston Martin has confirmed the return of one of its most appreciated cars, the V12 Vantage. This model has always been a favorite of enthusiasts due to the formula it follows.

Indeed, to make the V12 Vantage, Aston Martin installs its biggest engine in its smallest car, a similar recipe to the original American muscle cars.

This obviously means impressive performance, but also the mythical sound and character of a V12 engine under the hood.

The company was very brief in its press release, saying only: “You’ve heard about it. You will certainly hear it coming. V12 Vantage. It’s not just a Limited Edition, it’s a Final Edition. Returning in 2022.”

The last part of this statement makes it clear this will be the last time a V12 engine will be stuffed in the Vantage, since the brand will have to commit to electric sports cars soon.

No further details accompanied this news, so we can only speculate about the technical aspects of the car. It is very likely the V12 Vantage will use the same 5.2L twin turbo V12 engine that powers the DB11 and the DBS. Since these models don’t make the same power, we don’t know if the V12 Vantage will have 621 horsepower like the DB11 or 715, like the DBS.

The last V12 Vantage was discontinued in 2018 and it used a naturally aspirated 5.9L V12 engine.

A teaser video lets us hear the characteristic noise of the twelve-cylinder engine starting up and revving.
