The GT12 is an extreme, limited-production version of the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S. Originally named the Aston Martin Vantage GT3, it was renamed after Porsche complained over the use of the "GT3" moniker. The Aston Martin Vantage GT12 is limited to only 100 units.
The Aston Martin Vantage GT12 is equipped with a powered-up variant of Aston Martin's AM28 5.9L (5,935 cc) naturally aspirated V12, with a power output of 593 hp (601 PS; 442 kW) and a torque output of 461 ft·lb (625 Nm). The car's exterior and interior have been extensively reworked, with track-ready modifications such as a fixed rear wing and a revised front fascia. Weight-saving measures give the car a weight of 3450 lb (1565 kg).
|“||The new limited edition GT12 is where exclusivity and dynamic performance meet. Inspired by Aston Martin’s success in GT3 racing, there is little more one could ask for in a luxury sport coupe. This Vantage has been re-engineered taking in the experience and knowledge earned on the race track. It’s leaner by 220 pounds over the Vantage S, and boasts a significantly higher output as well. You will find the GT12 wider and lower with a prominent aero kit that not only screams racing, but also delivers substantial downforce to make cornering even more effortless. Aston Martin has made history in motorsport, and the GT12 gives you your own chance to drive a legend.||”|

The Aston Martin Vantage GT12 is a track-tuned version of the Aston Martin V12 Vantage S. Given its increased downforce over the road-going version, the Vantage GT12 corners and brakes much better than its road-going counterpart. A drawback of its high downforce generation is its low top speed of only 182 mph (293 km/h).
