The V12 Vantage was previewed in 2007 by the concept V12 Vantage RS and a production version showed up two years later. Originally, Aston Martin intended to create a total amount of 1,000 units and it had no objective of delivering the model to the UNITES STATE market.
Things have changed though and the V12 Vantage was at some point homologated for the U.S. market and the manufacturing was increased to about 1,320 devices. This number likes both the roadster version and the V12 Zagato.
Now, in an official later on sent out to its dealers, Aston Martin revealed that no orders are being accepted for the V12 Vantage. It appears like the letter was sent out on Friday April 19, 2013 and it basically verifies that the V12 Vantage is dead.
This news comes as a big surprise, considering it is rumored that Aston Martin will certainly also offer a small run of V12 Vantage “Centenary Editions.” If this is still the strategy, after that our presumption is that these Centenary models are entirely double-crossed.
