Aston Martin’s final-edition V12 Vantage heads to Goodwood

LONDON: Aston Martin’s limited and final-edition V12 Vantage will make its public dynamic debut at the June 23-26 Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The new V12 Vantage, announced earlier this year, will be the final Vantage to receive the company’s largest and most potent series production engine, marking the end of an era for this iconic sportscar.

As befits such a glorious era, the new V12 Vantage is the most powerful Vantage and the ultimate expression of extreme performance and thrilling driver-focused dynamics.

Following unprecedented demand, all 333 examples of this final edition sold out ahead of release. The car will make its UK public dynamic debut on the famous Goodwood Hillclimb on Thursday, continuing to excite crowds over the course of the weekend.

Other Aston models will also be present.


Following on from a successful global media launch in Sardinia in March and the first customer cars rolling off the line at St Athan last month, the DBX707 will too make its UK public dynamic debut in the ‘First Glance’ batch over the weekend.

DBX707, the world’s fastest and most powerful luxury SUV, will also showcase several Q by Aston Martin finishes that are available to order through the marque’s bespoke service, including the 2022 Aston Martin Racing Green paint – seen on the Aston Martin Aramco Cognizant Formula One Team’s car, Q design graphics and a set of lime green brake calipers.

Powered by a naturally aspirated 6.5-litre V12 engine producing 1160bhp, the Festival of Speed couldn’t go without an appearance from the ultimate hypercar, the Valkyrie.


The sound of its engine commanded huge crowds in the supercar paddock last year. With customer deliveries now underway, Aston Martin’s groundbreaking hypercar returns to take on the hillclimb once more, this year piloted by WEC racer Peter Dumbreck; an ex-Aston Martin Racing factory driver with 15 Nürburgring 24 Hours races under his belt.

Also taking on the hill will be the Vantage F1 Edition; motivated by the marque’s return to Formula 1 last year and as a direct result of the engineering that propelled the development of the Vantage as an Official Safety Car of Formula 1.

This will be joined by the V12 Speedster in the classic DBR1 livery – one of only 88 built, along with the beautiful but brutish DBS, and the DB11. The Aston Martin and Brough Superior AMB001 motorcycle will also be making its Goodwood dynamic debut up the hill this year.
