Aston Martin V12 Vantage won’t come to the U.S.

Last night, while all of us were drooling over images and the sound of the new 510-hp Aston Martin V12 Vantage, our friends at AutoBlog were talking to the U.S. Aston team figuring out the stateside availability of the most aggressive Vantage ever built.

Unfortunately, they found out that the V12 Vantage won’t make it to the U.S. Why? Apparently there are some problems with the huge front end passing U.S. crash test regulations. Also in question are the optional Alcantara, carbon Kelvar bucket seats that have no airbags.

Those of you that have the money to bring the V12 Vantage over to stateside illegally, make sure you send us some photos.
