Only a V-12 could do for the Final Edition Vantage and the sound it produces is pure symphony

At a time when every other car is getting a boost of extra horsepower from an electric powertrain, Aston Martin has once again had the audacious idea of stuffing a V-12 into its Vantage. Yes, you heard that right a V-12 in 2021.

The V12 Vantage is making a huge comeback and Aston has confirmed this via a small clip on social media. In the film, Aston Martin unveiled the logo for their upcoming V12 Vantage. You can also hear the twelve-amazing cylinder’s cry.

Now the original V12 Vantage is no by no means a halo car as close to 1199 examples were made in total

Now, this is not the first time that Aston has plonked a V-12 into the sporty Vantage. The British marque dropped the V-12 from the DB9 into the V8 Vantage nearly a decade ago now, resulting in the V12 Vantage. After 1199 examples, Aston finally pulled the plug. If you now wanted a V12, you’d have to go with either the DB11 or a DBS.

The V-12 Vantage featured a 6.0 liter naturally aspirated V-12 engine spanned several variants over the years with well over 500 horsepower

This was because the all-new Aston Martin Vantage, which debuted in late 2017, was powered by an AMG sourced 4.0-liter V-8 that produces between 510 and 535 horsepower depending on the model.

So it’s official, Aston is bringing back the V12 Vantage for 2022. The British marque has released a teaser clip on social media, where you can hear the 12 cyinders cry

Fast forward to today, you must immediately dismiss the notion of a 6.0-liter naturally aspirated V-12. This comeback will feature turbos, but it does still imply that you can get a V-12 without having to buy a “large” Aston Martin. Despite two turbo penalties, a V-12 is still a V-12!

Regardless, a V-12 is a V12 and there’s nothing quite like 12 cylinders is there

Expect, Aston to cram the 5.2-liter V-12 engine from the DBS Superleggera into the Vantage once more. While it will be a significant task, this recipe has always worked beautifully in the past. This news also echoes with the disguised Vantage Widebody prototypes that were spotted at the Nürburgring in recent times. It had to be the new V-12 Vantage. Expect a 0-100 sprint time of 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 186 mph.

The British automaker offers the Vantage as both a coupe and a Roadster or Volante as Aston likes to call it. Aside from the vague “Never Leave Quietly” statement, Aston Martin provided no additional information on the V-12 Vantage. Now that we know that a V-12 is on the way, they might as well give us a stick shift too, which will offer a more analog and pure driving experience. A sports car with a small footprint like the Vantage is definitely worthy of it. Plus, there aren’t really many cars out there in 2021 that can do that, can they?

However, that came to an end when Aston discontinued the V12 Vantage, when they introduced its successor in 2017

It appears that this could very well be the last time you can turn to Aston Martin for a V-12. That’s because, Aston doesn’t refer to the V12 Vantage as a “Limited Edition,” but rather a “Final Edition.” Now does this also mean that the V12 Vantage represents the end of the current gen-Vantage, despite the fact that it has only been on the market since late 2017? Well, in that case, this run will be something that collectors will definitely be on the lookout for.

Considering how Aston wants to go electric by 2025, this model will indeed be the swan song for the glorious V-12, which will inadvertently represent the end of an era for the British brand.

You can hear the V-12 growl for yourself in this tiny clip released by Aston
