Which car would you want to stuff an Aston Martin V12 into?
Right now, the only engine available for the Aston Martin Vantage is an AMG-sourced 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, which is also offered in the DB11. The DB11 is also available with Aston Martin's sublime 5.2-liter, twin-turbo V12. Sadly, Aston Martin currently has no plans to build a V12-powered Vantage. But if you fancy the challenge, you can now build your own.
In the Aston Martin DB11 AMR, the 5.2-liter, twin-turbo V12 produces 630 horsepower and 516 lb-ft, while the upcoming Aston Martin V12 Speedster increases the output to 700 horsepower.

While Aston Martin's marriage with AMG will soon end as AMG's 4.0-liter V8 will be replaced with an in-house developed hybrid V6 engine, Aston Martin's V12 is here to stay for the foreseeable future. The company remains committed to the twelve-cylinder unit for as long as possible, providing they can comply with emissions regulations.
