Aston Martin V12 Vantage coming to Geneva in March (with video)

Updated: High-res image gallery added after the jump.

Aston Martin has released pictures and details of its new V12 Vantage prior to its 2009 Geneva Motor Show debut. Aston Martin says that the V12 Vantage is the fastest most agile Vantage ever produced by the company with a striking appearance and everyday usability.

The new Aston Martin V12 Vantage is based on the V12 Vantage concept seen exactly 12 months ago. Power comes from a 6.0L V12 engine that pumps out 510-hp with a maximum torque of 420 lb-ft. The 0 to 62 mph run comes in just 4.2 seconds (0 to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds) with a top speed of 190 mph. Performance is further enhanced with race-developed materials and components made of lightweight carbon fiber.

Aston Martin said it will built the V12 Vantage at the company Gaydon plant. Production will be limited up to 1,000 units over the life span of the car. Deliveries will begin in the third quarter of 2009 with pricing to be announced in Geneva in March.

Our friend Richard Meaden from DriversRepublic also dropped us a video of the Aston Martin V12 Vantage that you can see after the jump. Make sure you turn up your volume.
