Video: Top Gear drives the Aston Martin V12 Vantage
Top Gear’s ringleader, Jeremy Clarkson took full advantage of the opportunity to get behind the wheel of the new Aston Martin V12 Vantage. This particular Vantage follows the traditional muscle car formula of putting your largest engine into a midsize automobile, unfortunately this kind of power mad car building could be coming to an end soon. So like Mr. Clarkson says, these types of machines should be enjoyed while we still can.
The vented bonnet wearing V12 Vantage is powered by 510 HP 6.0 Liter V12 from the much larger DBS. This kind of power is capable of propelling the Vantage to a top speed of 190 MPH and go from 0 to 60 MPH in less than 4.2 seconds.
