Aston Martin has essentially made a hot rod out of their Vantage model, by taking the 6.0 Liter V12 out of the larger DBS and shoehorned it into the smaller Porsche 911 sized Vantage. See what Driver’s Republic had to say when they tested the new Aston Martin V12 Vantage.

I think Vantage is a promising competitor for the Prosche

Yes, Vantage is supposed to be the real sports car of Aston Martin. Although, Driver’s Republic is giving a very possitive remark, I think Prosche 911 GT3 is alot better

My comment is it fit the oversized DBS in an almost crampy space.

0-62 mph in 4.2 seconds? The similar sized 911 GT3 can match that with a much smaller naturally aspirated 3.8 liter flat-6 engine!
Isn’t the Vantage supposed to be Aston Martin’s true 2-seater sportscar model which is lighter and more compact than the rest of the Aston Martins?

I guess its not light enough.
