The V12 Vantage is available as both a Coupé and a Roadster. The two variants are slightly different in terms of 0-62mph acceleration (4.2 seconds for the Coupé, 4.5 seconds for the Roadster), due to the extra 80kg of weight added by the Roadster’s roof and modified suspension. There is no difference, however, in the maximum speed of 190mph.
As well as vast reserves of horsepower, the 6.0-litre V12 engine delivers maximum torque of 570Nm at 5750rpm. The throttle response is therefore instantaneous in any gear, particularly when travelling on roads fast enough to make “Sport Mode” feasible.
The V12 Vantage’s leather, Alcantara and carbon fibre interior cossets you from bumps and potholes. The 300 litres of boot space is also a notable achievement, considering that this is a compact sportscar just over four metres in length.
