A couple of years ago, Aston Martin had a stroke of genius. They took their smallest car and shoe-horned in their biggest engine. The result was the V12 Vantage, with a 6-liter twelve producing 510 horsepower and driving it to 60 in 4.2 seconds en route to a 190 mph top speed.
Unfortunately, while the less powerful V8 Vantage remains a cornerstone of Aston's range in North America, the V12 Vantage remained an overseas product exclusively. Now the British sportscar-maker has announced that the V12 version is coming to American shores after all. A few minor revisions will be required to meet U.S. regulations, but the core formula of small car, big engine will remain. And we'll be thankful for it.
