Rare chance to own an Aston Martin GT12

The Aston Martin Vantage GT12 is one of the most coveted road-legal supercars around. A very limited number of these V12 GT3 inspired special editions were produced and one beautiful example is up for sale.

Aston Martin released the Vantage GT12 to celebrate the company’s success in the global GT3 series. The Vantage GT12 is track-focused, agile and features racer styling. The special edition was lkept to only 100 models which all sold out before its public debut.

This stunning car runs on a tweaked 6.0-litre V12 naturally aspirated engine producing 595bhp and 461 ft lb of torque. The GT12 receives engine upgrades from the racers including a magnesium torque tube, magnesium inlet manifold and titanium exhaust. The car will sprint from 0-60mph in 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 187mph. It is linked to a seven-speed manual and features rear-wheel drive and carbon-ceramic brakes.

The GT12 weighs in at only 1,565kg, due to the use of carbonfibre throughout. Carbonfibre additions include a large spoiler, rear wing, bumpers, bonnet, splitter and door panels. The interior is finished in a mixture of premium black leather and alcantara and includes Sat-Nav and a retractable display screen.

The GT12 on sale is finished in white with the Orange Q Graphics Pack.  The car is in great condition and has only 499 miles on the clock. The original sale price £250,000, however due to the GT12’s rarity the example in question is being offered for £428,995 from Knowl Hill.
