The 2019 Aston Martin V12 Vantage
After a decade-long run providing throaty power, the naturally aspirated V12 is making its last appearance in 2018 as a power plant for the Aston Martin Vantage. A casualty of stricter emission standards and improved alternatives, this transition offers a unique opportunity for those who appreciate power in its most basic form. The 2019 Aston Martin V12 Vantage, however, is about much more than just the number of cylinders in this thoughtfully crafted automobile.
Proportion and Balance
A side view of the 2019 Aston Martin V12 Vantage reveals a low profile silhouette in harmony with itself. From its slightly extended hood through its sweeping roofline and on back to its modest ducktail spoiler, the Vantage manages air efficiently and effectively while being easy on the eye. Rather than just being trendy, the large sporty wheels add to the proportional design elements.
Head on, the 2019 Aston Martin V12 Vantage offers a more aggressive appearance with its prominent front-end grille, air scoop and fiber hood slats. The understated tail end dismisses the air with little effort.
A No-Nonsense Interior with Throwback Elements
While the interior of the cockpit of the Aston Martin V12 Vantage is luxurious, it is also straight forward and clean. It is, first and foremost, a sports car. The interior elements of Vantage communicate this clearly. There are some throwback features to this Aston Martin which will appeal to many who appreciate fine automobiles. The Vantage V12 has a real key, for example, what the automaker calls an Emotional Control Unit (ECU). This substantial crystal and steel key needs to be inserted to bring the engine to life. Another throwback feature is its actual “pull-up to engage” handbrake, an admittedly small but comforting touch.
While the 2019 Aston Martin V12 Vantage comes with its “Sportshift III’, seven-speed automated manual transmission, some will appreciated that it is also available as a true, three-pedal and a stick manual edition. This can be especially appealing for those looking to fully enjoy the hands-on, feet-on, feel of driving this spirited automobile.
More Than Just 12 Cylinders
While the 2019 Aston Martin V12 Vantage is much more than just 12 cylinders, it does have the distinction of being the fastest production model constructed by the automaker. With a top speed of 205 mph and a zero to 62 time of just 3.9 seconds, it has the power and energy to meet just about anybody’s need for speed. Like a finely tuned instrument, it sounds as good as it feels, especially as it settles into cruising speed. Those in search of a sophisticated car with muscle and an appropriate dose of old-school touches will appreciate the 2019 Aston Martin V12 Vantage.
