Aston reveals new

V12 powerplant

Aston Martin new V12 engine, 2024

A NEW V12 engine has been developed by Aston Martin and it is thought it will be used to power its new Vanquish flagship.

The company has committed to continuing its 25-year bloodline of V12-engined model and it says the new powerplant is a technical masterpiece and a true leader in its class.

With 835ps and 1,000Nm of torque the new V12 is the result of a complete re-design, and includes a strengthened cylinder block and conrods, redesigned cylinder heads incorporating reprofiled camshafts, plus new intake and exhaust ports.

Repositioned spark plugs and new higher flowrate fuel injectors deliver optimised combustion for class leading performance and efficiency gains.

In addition, new higher speed, reduced inertia turbochargers deliver increased performance and throttle response.

Aston Martin chief technical officer Roberto Fedeli 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 1,000Nm of torque this unparalleled engine represents nothing less than the dawn of a dazzling new V12 era for Aston Martin."

The new V12 engine, which will feature across Aston Martin's most exclusive and limited availability models, is a statement of intent and, as such, it will be handcrafted, year by year, in strictly limited numbers.

It will make its first appearance later in 2024 when further technical details will be released.
