The Aston Martin V12 Vantage is a sports car manufactured by Aston Martin. It is powered by a 5.9L V12 which was also used in the Aston Martin DBS.

Carbon-fibre louvres on the bonnet, a new rear diffuser, and a rear wing distinguish the car from other Vantage models.

Production started in 2009 and was originally planned to be limited to 1,000 units. The limit was later lifted and over 1,300 units were produced including a convertible variant and the Zagato-designed V12 Zagato.

The production of the V12 Vantage ended in mid-2013 and the model was replaced by the more powerful and lighter V12 Vantage S later in the year.
