As the world moves towards a downsized and eventually non-combusting era, we must bid farewell to one of our favourite cars and, unfortunately, the V12 Vantage is one of them.

Why are we fans of the V12 Vantage? Because of the sheer audacity, that’s why. Who else would be bold enough to pack a behemoth of an engine into a car of this size and get away with it? Whether that weight and size impact the handling of the car is to be determined by Henry Catchpole in this review, but if its predecessor is any indication, the sound alone would make it worthwhile.

Here are the headline specifications:
• 5.2L Twin Turbo V12
• 700PS (690HP), 753Nm
• ZF 8-Speed automatic
• 0-60mph in 3.4s
• 200mph top speed
• Rear-wheel-drive only
• Limited to 333 units
• The last V12 Vantage

• Michelin Pilot Sport 4S road tyres
• 1mm thin steel exhaust system (saves 7kg)
• 1795kg total weight
