Aston Martin teased us with the V12 Vantage concept last year and now the company has released details about the production version that will make its official debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March.

Under the hood is a massive 6.0-liter V12 engine that produces 510 bhp (380 kW / 517 PS) and 570 Nm (420 lb ft) of torque. The company predicts a 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) time of just 4.2 seconds and a top speed of 190 mph (305 km/h). For comparison Aston's more mainstream V8 Vantage is powered by a 4.7-liter V8 which produces 420bhp and 470Nm of torque, enabling the car to run from 0 to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds and hit a top speed of 180mph (288km/h).

Since it is based off the highly popular V8 Vantage, the new V12 version has a familiar look but minor exterior differences include a new front bumper with larger air intakes and a lower spoiler, more aerodynamic side skirts, new wheels, and a ventilated hood. Out back there is a slightly larger rear spoiler, a fantastic looking rear diffuser, a new dual exhaust system with larger tips, and clear taillights.

Interior changes are minor but include piano gloss black trim on the center console as well as sport seats and a steering wheel covered in what appears to be Alcantara.

The company expects to begin delivering the new V12 Vantage to customers sometime in the third quarter of this year and has announced plans to limit production to just 1,000 units.
