The rare Aston Martin V12 Vantage V600 is pure analogue bliss
Mate a manual gearbox to a V12 engine and watch the sparks fly
The Aston Martin V12 Vantage V600 is a limited-run car produced in just 14 examples - seven coupés and seven roadsters. But it is as amazing to drive as it is rare.
Inspired by the supercharged V8 Vantage V600 from 1998, the modern V12 Vantage V600 uses a naturally-aspirated, 6-liter V12 engine making 600 PS aimed at a dog-leg seven-speed manual gearbox.
The body is made entirely out of carbon fiber and Aston Martin threw in a three-stage adaptive damping system to complete the car’s driving capabilities.
Speaking of which, Carfection’s Henry Catchpole had the chance to take the V12 Vantage V600 for a spin and was left hugely impressed by the supercar’s analogue ethos, the level of balance it offers on the road and its roaring titanium exhaust.
