High Power Engine In A Small Car – Aston Packs V-12 Into Vantage Concept
Most of the body in which the powerful engine has been stuffed is of V12 Vantage RS concept.
As far as the size is concerned, the VH modular architecture has been stretched.
This has been done because the twelve- cylinder power requires more space to fit in.
All these specifications result in making 6.0 liter powered concept car with a front engine. It has a rear drive, and matches the Ferrari F430 Scuderia with 510 hp.
This car is “focused on extreme performance and dynamics”, along with elegant beauty and sublime design.
Astons’ car is undoubtedly a great venture that is every one wishes to have. Dr. Ulrich Bez, Aston development chief told, “…sufficient demand then we will seriously consider a low volume production run in the near future with a price that will reflect the exclusivity of the car.”
He also said, “This is the ultimate performance interpretation of the Vantage range, combining our most agile model with our most powerful engine”.
He further added, “This is the definitive driving package, with spectacular performance and dynamically thrilling but an everyday usable driving experience,”
This model will not be launched in the American market. It is said that the car can’t be launched their due to some legal issues.
These are concerning crash and engine protection. Specifically the absence of side bags with optional bucket seats is the main cause.
