For all the excitement surrounding the 2011 SEMA Auto Show, the lack of European exotics present is one of the things that we think should be changed. For their part, Galpin Auto Sports - yeah, those boys from Pimp My Ride - want to change that, or at least hope to, by bringing a tricked out version of one of Britain’s best supercars, the Aston Martin V12 Vantage AMWH, to Las Vegas.
As one of a total of 12 vehicles being brought by GAS, the V12 Vantage AMWH comes with a bevy of exterior modifications, to go with a subtle performance upgrade. To begin their project, GAS dressed the British supercar in a flat-matte paint finish with matching black-painted trim pieces on the grille and the window surrounds. The American tuner also gave the car plenty of carbon fiber material, including on, but not limited to, the mirrors, the rear diffuser, the interior door panels, climate-control vents, and strut braces. Rounding out the exterior modifications for the V12 Vantage are a new set of 20" matte black wheels.
In terms of the slight performance improvement, GAS added a Flowmaster exhaust system that added 10 horsepower to the V12 Vantage’s 517-horsepower 6.0-liter V12 engine. Do the math and that totals to 527 ponies for the stealthy British exotic beast.
