The Dawn of a New V12 Era

Aston Martin V12 Engine

With the move to greener and more eco-friendly motoring many car manufacturers having been developing smaller, more fuel efficient engines with those wonderful larger V6, V8 and V12 engine’s days being numbered. But not so with British marque Aston Martin who have just revealed a fearsome new V12 engine, an engine many people thought they would probably never see again in a new car.

Continuing its 25-year bloodline of V12-engined flagships, Aston Martin has created a technical masterpiece and a true leader in its class that showcases the exceptional in-house engineering ability to defiantly defend the emotional engagement of the true sports car driving experience, promising outstanding performance for those who appreciate and still want a heart-pounding drive.

Aston Martin’s new V12 engine is unmatched with a massive 835PS and powerful 1000Nm of torque. This has been achieved by a complete re-design, optimisation and improvement that refines every stage of the internal combustion process to achieve unprecedented performance and efficiency.

The new engine has a strengthened cylinder block and conrods, redesigned cylinder heads incorporating reprofiled camshafts, as well as new intake and exhaust ports. The spark plugs have been repositioned and new higher flowrate fuel injectors deliver optimised combustion for increased performance and efficiency gains. The V12 is also fitted with new higher speed, reduced inertia turbochargers that deliver increased performance and instant throttle response.

Roberto Fedeli, Aston Martin’s Chief Technical Officer, said:

“The V12 engine has long been a symbol of power and prestige, but it is also a statement of engineering passion and technical prowess. With 835PS and 1000Nm of torque this unparalleled engine represents nothing less than the dawn of a dazzling new V12 era for Aston Martin.”

The new V12 engine will be available across Aston Martin’s most exclusive and limited availability models and is a bold statement of the marque’s luxurious sporting intent and will be hand built each year in strictly limited numbers.

The engine will first be seen in a new flagship model that makes its debut later this year.
