Aston Martin has confirmed the arrival of something new for the Vantage recently: a new version with a V12 engine. The tone of the video published by the brand promoting the model, however, may sound like a farewell. That’s because the super sports car may be the brand’s last to boast a V-12 engine.

In a recent statement, Aston Martin itself said that the car “is not just a limited edition, it is the final version”, emphasizing the idea of farewell. In times when automakers are moving faster and faster towards electrification, Aston Martin will switch to V8 engines only. The first electric brand is scheduled to be launched in 2025.
Without showing any image of the model, it is only possible to hear the roar of the new Vantage’s engine, followed by the words “never leave in silence” – in Portuguese, “never leave in silence”. At all times, the name of the sports car and the acronym for the V12 engine appear in the video.
Along with the design, there is also no information about the power of the engine. It is believed to be the same V12 5.2 biturbo as the DBS Superleggera and Speedster, which produces 700 hp and 91.8 kgfm. For the transmission, we will not have a manual gearbox, with an eight-speed automatic transmission most likely.
The premiere is already scheduled for 2022. With so many rumors, the only certainty is that it will be for a few, with a high price and few units.
