On 11 December 2007, as part of Aston Martin’s opening of their own design studio, the company unveiled a concept car based on the V8 Vantage. The car, known as the V12 Vantage RS, featured the AM11 V12 engine from the DBS and produced 510 bhp (380 kW; 517 PS) and 570 N⋅m (420 lb⋅ft) of torque. The power along with the kerb weight of 1,695 kg (3,737 lb) allows the car to accelerate from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.2 seconds and achieve a top speed of 190 mph (306 km/h).
Other additions include a new rear diffuser, a retractable rear-wing which can be raised or lowered and carbon-ceramic brakes. The boot-lid and vented bonnet are also made from carbon fibre to help decrease the car’s weight. In early 2008, Aston Martin’s CEO confirmed production of the V12 Vantage RS for mid-2009.
Development prototypes of the V12 Vantage RS appeared in April 2008 before Aston Martin unveiled the production version simply called the V12 Vantage in 2009.
On the finale of the 13th series of Top Gear, presenter Jeremy Clarkson drove the car simply saying that “It’s wonderful, wonderful, wonderful”.
This particular example was delivered new on the 22th of January 2010 by Aston Martin in Italy.
Finished in Onyx Black (Contemporary) (Paint) over a Obsidian Black (Contemporary) Caithness leather / Alcantara interior, showing 38,924 km on the odometer, this car has been well looked after and maintained.
