Potential Comeback: Aston Martin Vanquish to Boast New V-12 Engine Generating 824 HP

The company guarantees total defeat for all.

At times, car manufacturers like to be mysterious when hinting at upcoming products. We can think of the odd Dodge Demon 170 teaser clips with strange numbers and a spooky leprechaun sporting yellow eyes. However, Aston Martin is taking a different approach. The famous British company is unveiling a new twin-turbocharged V-12 engine for the upcoming Vanquish model. Now that’s what you call direct and to the point!

Aston Martin has officially announced the upcoming release of a new V-12 engine. Specifics regarding the engine’s features have not been disclosed at this time; however, it is said to possess a more robust block with stronger connecting rods, revamped cylinder heads, a fresh intake system, redesigned camshafts, and enhanced turbochargers. Sources claim that this new engine will deliver an output of 824 horsepower and 738 pound-feet of torque.

Dawn of a new V12 era | All Will Be Vanquished

Aston Martin’s Chief Technical Officer, Roberto Fedeli, expressed, “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 (824 hp) and 1000Nm (738 lb-ft) of torque, this unparalleled engine represents nothing less than the dawn of a dazzling new V-12 era for Aston Martin.”

Nonetheless, we believe that the engine is not the focal point of this news. According to a press release from Aston Martin, the V-12 engine will be featured in their “most exclusive and limited availability models,” including a new flagship set to be unveiled later this year. The announcement, along with the video above, ends with the statement “All will be vanquished.” It’s clear that Aston Martin has something special in store.

It has been a while since a fresh Vanquish model has hit the scene. Back in 2018, the last generation bid farewell, but we did catch a glimpse of what could be with the 2019 Vanquish Vision Concept. This concept aimed to take on mid-engine V6 Ferrari models but unfortunately never materialized. Now, it appears that the classic setup of a front-engine, rear-wheel drive grand tourer is making a comeback for another round. The anticipation to see it in action is high.
