Aston Martin is working on a 14 V12 Vantage V600s which takes inspiration from the original 1999 V600 Le Mans known for being the most powerful cars in the world. Aston's Q commission department produced seven coupé and seven convertible samples. The new cars from the company are basically based on the previous-generation VH-based Vantage and utilizes a naturally aspirated 5.9-litre V12 engine generating a peak torque of 600hp. Such a car was ordered by a buyer and later he agreed to let Aston manufacture a small visit for the model.
The new Vantage V600 gets all new sides, bulging bonnet, and a carbon fibre body, all of which signals to the original V600. Further, it takes lightweight seats, carbon fibre centre console and a darkened front grille imitating a feature from the 1999 model and continues with the trend.
