Aston Martin Reveals New V12 Engine With 824 HP, Teases New Vanquish

Key Takeaways

  • Aston Martin reveals its most powerful V12 engine ever.
  • “The V12 to Vanquish them all” suggests new Vanquish will be first model to utilize the powerplant.
  • Aston dubs new model coming this year as a “dynamic disruptor.”

Aston Martin has today confirmed the V12 will remain a part of its powertrain lineup, teasing a new Aston Martin Vanquish powered by the 12-cylinder configuration. While the model name hasn’t been officially declared, taglines in the announcement like “the V12 to Vanquish them all” and “all will be vanquished” leave little doubt about the new model’s official title.

Most Powerful V12 In Its Class

In addition to the name, Aston confirmed outputs of the new V12 engine at 824 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque. Aston Martin claims the engine is the most powerful in its class, something that has become a habit for the British marque following similar statements of intent with the DB12 and the heavily facelifted Vantage.

Aston touts the V12 as all-new, but hasn’t disclosed its displacement, making it unclear as to whether this is an evolution of the old 5.2-liter twin-turbo V12. It is described as a complete redesign, with technical highlights including strengthened conrods, a reinforced block, and a redesigned head with new cam profiling and intake and exhaust ports.

Repositioned spark plugs and high-flow fuel injectors contribute to the newfound performance, as do higher speed, reduced inertia turbochargers, which should aid throttle response over the outgoing V12 found in models like the DBS 770 Ultimate.

“The V12 engine has long been a symbol of power and prestige, but it is also a statement of engineering passion and technical prowess,” says Roberto Fedelli, Aston Martin Chief Technical Officer.

The New Vanquish – Arriving In 2024

Aston Martin has said the new V12 engine will be used in the automaker’s most exclusive and limited production models. That means a slew of limited editions like the Valour, but also halo models. The first to feature the new V12 is slated to arrive later this year, described as a “true dynamic disruptor.”

Yes, the V12 is expected to live on.

Per the hints mentioned at the outset, it will revive the Vanquish nameplate, which we previously reported will take over from the outgoing Aston Martin DBS. This model has been previously spied wearing camouflage cladding, and is likely to sport vastly improved styling and chassis enhancements in keeping with Aston’s recent trend of making huge improvements to its entire model lineup.
