Aston Martin reveals limited edition 592bhp Vantage V600
The V600 name returns from the 1998 Vantage, then the most powerful car in the world. The new car, limited to just 14 build slots, could be the last run out for the VH platform
Aston Martin has reintroduced the V600 name, previously used in the late 1990s, back into its line-up courtesy of 14 customer-commissioned cars based on the previous generation Vantage.
At the time, the 1998 Vantage V600 was the most powerful production car in the world due to its 600bhp output from a supercharged V8.

The 2018 Vantage V600 will revert back to Aston Martin’s familiar 5.9-litre V12 and will produce 592bhp, and each of the 14 cars will come with a seven-speed manual gearbox. The V600 will also use front and rear dual independent wishbone suspension, featuring three-stage adaptive damping.
Born as a result of a customer commission, the limited production run will be split between seven coupés and seven roadsters dubbed the ‘Triple V’.
Marek Reichman, vice president and chief creative officer of Aston Martin, said: ‘This is precisely why we created our ‘Q by Aston Martin – Commission’ service. Our customers can create truly bespoke sports cars by personally collaborating with myself and Aston Martin’s design team. The V600 name remains a classic in Aston Martin’s heritage and I’m proud to see it adorn the V12 Vantage V600 once again.'
With the new generation Vantage already on sale, the V600 could be the last run out for the previous VH platform. It follows special editions such as the GT12 and GT8, plus the AMR homage to Aston Martin’s World Endurance Championship and Le Mans GTE class winner.
Design cues from the previous V600 include a redesigned a side-strake and more aggressive front grille. The new, distinctive bonnet bulge is flanked by cooling holes as seen on the DB10 used in the James Bond film Spectre. A quad exhaust and new carbon-fibre diffuser feature at the rear, and there are also bespoke centre-lock forged aluminium wheels.
Deliveries are expected in the third quarter of 2018.
