Even the iconic Aston Martin Vantage is slated to go electric after 2030, and the upcoming new-generation Vantage could be the ultimate V12-powered Aston Martin road car.
The advent of electric vehicles (EVs) also means the end of some gas-powered supercars. By the end of the decade, several automakers have announced the switch to electric powertrains with their new-generation models, and the intoxicating roar of a V8 or V12 engine will become very rare. Even the iconic Aston Martin Vantage is slated to go electric after 2030 and so when we saw the latest trailer for the upcoming new generation Vantage, we realized that this could be Aston Martin’s last V12 road car.
If you pay close attention, you’ll notice that the flagship model is sporting a new grille with horizontal slats flanked by vertical air intakes. A prominent front spoiler is also evident and is part of a larger aerodynamic package. Previously, images of its test mule that emerged from the Nurburgring also revealed dual exhaust pipes that are not clearly seen in this teaser. It will then also have a bulging hood to make room for an engine presumably derived from the exclusive V12 Speedster. It’s a 5.3-liter twin-turbo V12 engine that is expected to produce 681 hp and 753 Nm of torque.
The car is expected to have an all-carbon fiber body to check the weight, and its production run will be limited to just 299 units. The company has yet to confirm the launch date of the new-generation Aston Martin Vantage V12, but according to rumors, we expect it to make its global debut in March 2022.
