Show Notes

Aston Martin has revealed the final edition of its V12 Vantage sports car. As the automaker plans to introduce its first fully-electric vehicle in 2025 and offer an electric option in all new car lines beginning in 2026, this new sports car represents the last fossil-fuel version of this line. 

In an interview with Reuters, Aston Martin executive chairman and investor Lawrence Stroll said, “This V12 Vantage is really a swan song and it will be the last one we make before we move onto hybridization and electrification.”

The first V12 Vantage RS concept was shown in 2007 and since then, CEO Tobias Moers says the company has been “fitting our biggest engine into our smallest and most sporting model.” He went on to call the new version “the fastest, most powerful and most dynamically capable V12 Vantage ever.”
