1998 V8 Vantage V600 breathes again in a limited run customer commission V12 Vantage V600
Aston Martin has reborn the Vantage V600 in a form of a customer commissioned limited run all-new V12 Vantage V600, which was inspired and influenced by the original V8 Vantage V600.
Back in 1998, Aston Martin used to offer its customers with the supercharged V8 Vantage V600 that delivers 600 bhp, making it one of the most powerful cars of its time. Today, the luxury British carmaker's unique personalization service Q received a customer commission for a strictly limited run of 14 new Aston Martin V12 Vantage V600s. Split between seven coupes and seven roadsters and dubbed the ‘Triple V’, this unique series of manual V12 V600s have been commissioned, designed and handcrafted without compromise.
The 2018 Aston Martin V12 Vantage V600 combines the modern performance of a muscle sportscar, while maintaining the timeless design of the analogue Vantage.
Powered by an upgraded version of 6.0-liter V12 engine, the V600 is capable of producing an output of 592 hp. Mated to a 7-speed manual transmission, this vehicle provides an engaged driving experience, while the front and rear dual independent wishbone suspension – featuring 3-stage adaptive damping – produces a sublime ride in all conditions.
The V12 Vantage V600 has commanding road presence and utilizes aggressive styling cues across its full-carbon fiber exterior. Like the 90s classic, the V600 uses a re-imagined side-strake and a bulging bonnet that hints towards the power that lies underneath. A unique darkened grille provides maximum air and cooling to the model’s V12, while the car’s rear continues to signal towards the car’s powerful nature.
An all-new carbon fiber diffuser provides the backdrop for an attention grabbing quad exhaust system. The external look of the V600 is further distinguished by bespoke centre-lock forged and machined aluminum wheels.
The interior of the Vantage V600 is a study in the beauty of carbon fiber and dark anodized aluminum. The lightweight seats have an all-new perforation pattern, carbon fiber center console and bespoke driver information dials. A hand-crafted saddle leather centre armrest provides comfort and style within ergonomic reach of the machined-from-solid gear shifter.
