This is what a 595-horsepower, limited edition Aston Martin sounds likeby Kirby, on
The Aston Martin Vantage GT8 may be grabbing all the headlines these past few days and deservedly so. But just because everyone’s talking about the Vantage GT8, that doesn’t mean we’ve forgotten about its big brother, the Vantage GT12. Let’s face it, as awesome as the GT8 is – and it’s pretty awesome! – the GT12 is still in a different league altogether.
Proof of that can be found in this video where the limited-edition, track-focused monster was spotted doing some raging runs around the Nürburgring. There aren’t really a lot of words that you can say to aptly describe that ear-piercing roar coming out of that 6.0-liter V-12 engine. That’s 595 horsepower and 461 pound-feet of torque worth of power and judging by that exhaust note, all that power is being put to good use.
I can’t say enough about the Vantage GT12 without feeling envious that I won’t be able to drive one anytime soon. After all, Aston Martin only produced 100 units of the car so it’s not like I’m going to spot one in my neighborhood anytime soon. Fortunately, there are videos like this one to keep me company as I continue to wistfully imagine being able to get behind the wheel of one. Check out the video and remember: volume up!
