This Aston Martin GT12 Costs Four Times More Than The New Vantage

For Sale

Yours for over $500,000. Or you could buy a new Aston Martin Vantage for $150,000.

As much as we love the all-new Aston Martin Vantage, there’s a good chance it will get even better in years to come with more extreme, track-focused variants. If you can’t wait until then, a lightweight GT12 version of the previous generation Vantage is currently looking for a new owner – but it’s nearly four times more expensive than the new Vantage. While prices for the new Aston Martin Vantage start at just under $150,000, UK dealer Joe Macari is listing this 2016 Aston Martin GT12 for an eye-watering $566,320.

Originally the GT12 cost $333,000, so its value has soared to half a million in only a year. To be fair though, it’s one of only 100 in the world built as a swansong to the V12 Vantage. Finished in Vulcano Red, this Aston Martin GT12 has barely been driven since it has only 520 miles on the clock. Aston Martin went to extreme measures to make the GT12 as light as possible, removing the sound deadening from the interior, installing polycarbonate rear and rear quarter windows, and a plethora of carbon fiber parts including flared front wings, hood, door casings, mirror caps and an optional roof panel. As a result, the GT12 is 220 pounds lighter than a regular Vantage V12 S.

The owner of this GT12 clearly didn’t show much restraint when sifting through the options list, as they added all available carbon fiber parts along with a premium 700W audio system, carbon gearshift panels and a reversing camera. It also features seven-spoke satin black wheels with grey brake calipers and a Pure Black Alcantara interior with red stitching and obsidian black carpets. Under the hood is a 591-horsepower V12 that sounds absolutely sublime and enables the GT12 to screech off the line from 0-62 mph in 3.5 seconds before topping out at 185 mph. If you're still trying to justify the $500,000 asking price, the new Vantage is currently only being sold with an AMG-sourced V8 and is rapidly selling out.
