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

Need for Speed: WorldEdit

The V12 Vantage was made available in Need for Speed: World on September 9th, 2011 following the second "Spot the Devs" event.

The V12 Vantage's acceleration and nitrous boost are almost the same as the Aston Martin DBS. It also has great handling attributes due to good grip whilst cornering and a nimble steering. Top speed is 192 mph (309 km/h).

Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010)Edit

The Aston Martin V12 Vantage appears in Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit (2010) as a Super class Racer vehicle and Rapid Deployment class police vehicle. Both variants require 643,000 Bounty points to be unlocked.

Compared to other vehicles within its performance class, the V12 Vantage clearly lacks in terms of acceleration. However, it is featured with powerful nitrous, a very responsive steering, and is capable of performing longer drifts. It is a balanced vehicle for pursuits, being reasonably durable but not the best in class.

Need for Speed: The RunEdit

The Aston Martin V12 Vantage appears in Need for Speed: The Run as a Tier 4 car, which is unlocked in The Run Mode. No NFS Edition or any Signature Edition variants of the car are featured.

The V12 Vantage has mediocre acceleration and top speed. It has a Challenging handling rating.

A "Lightweight" signature edition is unlocked upon beating 10 multiplayer objectives in the Manufacturer Battles Weekly Playlist.

Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012)Edit

The V12 Vantage appeared in the E3 Reveal Trailer of Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012). It has also been featured in the "Find it, Drive it" gameplay trailer.

It was officially announced as a featured vehicle through Need for Speed's official website on September 30th, 2012.

In the official release, the V12 Vantage is available as a silver starter car, which is classed as a Sports car. The player must use it to reach the Jack Spot of a yellow Porsche 911 Carrera S (991). In multiplayer, it is unlocked upon reaching SpeedLevel 22.

In terms of acceleration, the V12 Vantage is one of the fastest RWD Sports cars. The Marussia B2 is nearly identical in this field but has a higher top speed. The handling is easily managable, making it a useful starter car. However, the Alfa Romeo 4C Concept and the Porsche 911 Carrera S are capable of conering faster.
