Aston Martin V12 Vantage - Click above for an image gallery

Reviews of the Aston Martin V12 Vantage are beginning to pop up around the interwebs and Aston decided to hype up the first drives by releasing an additional 20 photos of its new 510-hp GT through... Facebook. The real-world shots show a few more details of the hopped-up Vantage, including the racy carbon fiber hood vents, suede-lined seats and a eye-catching blood-red interior. Unfortunately, the V12 Vantage isn't headed Stateside, but rest assured, our non-essential organs are finding their way onto Craigslist for an opportunity to drive the new sports coupe abroad. Until that happens, check the gallery below for plenty of beauty shots.

      They could at least paint the vents. Blend them a bit.

      Sexy.

      Thanks guys. We're a bit understaffed and I'm undercaffeinated. Triple espresso on the way.
        • 5 Years Ago
        no worries
        • 5 Years Ago
        Hah, I know how you feel.

        On a side note, you'd think a company like Aston Martin could afford to post some higher res. images, even on Facebook. *shrug*

      That hood is garish. For a car that has always been about form, it reeks of a bit too much function. Maybe it would look better in person. From that picture it's ghastly.

      Does the V12 growl when you poke it? (...pre-emptive "That's what she said" for my own comment.)
      • 5 Years Ago
      Jeez, Aston sure is milking that body design for as long as possible.
        • 5 Years Ago
        If it ain't broke, don't fix it!


        That is one of the sexiest front engined cars EVER, let alone currently built. Why would you mess with that, until sure that there is something unequivocally better on deck?

        That red one is really drool-worthy, as I like darker, richer colors than the pale blue.

        But please, make mine in scottish Ecurie Ecosse blue with titanium white details, and Prodrive Vantage handling kit and wheels. (heck, I'd take a V8 Vantage in that configuration with never a complaint whatsoever... but the V12 bodywork is that much nicer, and added power is not a bad thing at all.)

        they r "milking" it because it rocks.... very good looking and very aerodynamically sound

      I wish it would get social and stop by my garage for a awhile!!!!!

      Beautiful car...another vote against those hideous hood vents though. They look like the universal hand sign for "Rock On!".

      I think the title is supposed to read "Aston gets social, releases 20 new pics of V12 Vantage on Facebook".

      It's ok Autoblog, it's hump day.

      "Aston gets social, releases 20 new pics of V8 Vantage on Facebook"

      So the V8 now shares a hood with the V12 even though it doesn't need extra cooling?

      Put me in the camp of anti-hood vents...I know form follows function but those hood vents simply look out of place. (Not to say I wouldn't take one in my garage.)
        • 5 Years Ago
        Same here. I like the car, just not impressed by the hood vents. They look out of place and a bit amateurish on a car of this price.
