The Aston Martin V12 Vantage V600 Is The Biggest Beef Boy Of All

A little while back we saw the online debut of the Aston Martin V12 Vantage V600, a limited-run superspec car with the company’s big V12 and a manual transmission. Now it’s out in the real world and we didn’t realize that it is a widebody hulk of a car.

These shots come from Chris Harris, who is at Le Mans doing his usual thing. I presume this includes mostly:

  • Yelling at Mike Spinelli on camera.
  • Yelling at Mike Spinelli off camera.
  • Talking to some buddy of his who is racing at Le Mans then getting interrupted by Mike Spinelli.
  • Yelling more at Mike Spinelli, then hurling him into a well.

Chris points out that this is more than just a big power Aston, it’s more of a supersports-for-the-road concept, kind of like the ‘Touring’ models that Porsche has been up to, or maybe like a wingless GT2, if Porsche were to make such a thing.

The staff is split on the hood vents on the car. By that I mean, I think they are cool and good and everyone else covered me in silly string.

In any case, I am glad that this Aston is shaped like an English Bulldog, like a patty of horsepower.

A few weeks back, spied the mule of this car in the garage of the Dorint hotel at the ‘Ring. You may need to scroll one pic to the right to see it.
