Boasting a 6.0-liter V12 engine, with 510 bhp (380 kW / 517 PS) and 570 Nm (420 lb-ft) of torque, the Vantage can run from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in just 4.2 seconds.

Aston Martin's CEO, Dr. Ulrich Bez, has announced the V12 Vantage will finally be offered to American consumers.

In an interview with Car and Driver, Bez said US homologation is currently underway. While he declined to say when the model will be available, he stated that the car's initial production run of 1,000 units could be expanded.

In other Aston Martin news, Bez said the company is targeting 2,000 Rapide sales a year. He also confirmed the Cygnet will be launched in early 2010, 50 One-77 supercars have been sold, and the hideous Lagonda SUV concept is being "further developed" for production.
