Video: Two minutes of Aston Martin V12 Vantage goodness

Despite being two years late to the party, nobody is really blaming the Aston Martin V12 Vantage for only coming to American shores now. The important thing is it’s coming and that bodes well for those who’ve been waiting since 2007 for the Aston supercar to arrive in America.

Of course, having about $180,000 - or more - in your bank account helps too. Powered by that gargantuan 6.0-liter V12 engine that produces over 500 horsepower, the V12 Vantage is no ordinary Aston exotic. If it were, we probably would have gotten tired of it a long time ago. However, with a combination of high-end performance capabilities and rare exclusivity, the V12 Vantage has become quite a ’unicorn’ of a supercar - those models that are so rare it’s hard to catch one, let alone own one.

That tag will almost certainly be dropped once the V12 Vantage makes its way to the US. And to tease what we’re in store for, the folks of Aston have released a quick look at the supercar in all its stupendous glory. The wait is finally over. The countdown for its arrival is on like Donkey Kong.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

I love this car too, but I’ve heard that the seating position on the vantage isn’t very good and makes the car feel much bigger than it really is. Then again, you don’t buy these for their seating positions

Well, that is a quick teaser video of Aston Martin V12 and sweet, a slow motion glory shots of the car doing what it does best and sending tires to their smoky grave. It seems it was a seemingly plebian strips of asphalt

I agree. They rated it as the most agile and more fun to drive than the DB9 and Ferrari.

What an interesting movie, but many reviews over the internet. They told that the DB9 is way better and more fun than the Vantage. I wonder it why?
