In 1998, Aston Martin offered its customers the most extreme iteration of its Vantage sportscar, the supercharged V8 Vantage V600. Delivering 600bhp, the model was one of the most powerful sports cars of its time.
Today, the V600 has been reborn in the form of a customer commissioned limited run of all-new V12 Vantage V600s, inspired and influenced by the original.
Aston Martin’s personalisation service, Q by Aston Martin, received a customer commission for a strictly limited run of 14 new Vantage V600s, split between seven coupes and seven roadsters and dubbed the ‘Triple V’.
Powered by an upgraded version of Aston Martin’s 6.0-litre naturally aspirated V12 engine, producing 600ps (590hp), the Vantage V600 has some pretty aggressive styling cues across its full-carbon fibre exterior with an all-new carbon fibre diffuser providing 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 aluminium wheels.
The interior of the Vantage V600 is a study in carbon fibre and dark anodised aluminium. The lightweight seats have an all-new perforation pattern, carbon fibre centre 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.
The 2018 Aston Martin V12 Vantage V600 is available on request with deliveries taking place in Q3 2018.
“This is precisely why we created our ‘Q by Aston Martin – Commission’ service,” said Marek Reichman, Vice President & Chief Creative Officer Aston Martin. “Our customers can create truly bespoke sports cars by personally collaborating with myself and Aston Martin’s design team. The V600 name remains a classic in Aston Martin’s heritage and I’m proud to see it adorn the V12 Vantage V600 once again”.
