Aston Martin V12 Vantage Goes Hill Climbing

Aston Martin V12 Vantage Hill Climb at Aston Martin V12 Vantage Goes Hill Climbing

The swell and lavish Aston Martin V12 Vantage not only is a wonderful supercar for the roads, it is also a serious athlete! A while ago it went on a 24 hours race at the fearsome Nurbutgring track and now it’s going to tackle the hills of Worcestershire, UK, in Shelsley Walsh National Hill Climb Festival on 15/16 August.

The hill climb course is 1,000 yards (914m) in length and no more than 12 feet (3.66m) wide at its narrowest points. It is notably steep, rising 328 feet (100m) over the length of the course making Shelsley a hill on which power is especially important.The V12 Vantage will be driven by UK motoring journalists Richard Meaden – who formed part of the driver team that piloted the car to victory at the Nürburgring in May – and Matt Prior from Autocar magazine.

The magnificent V12 Vantage is powered by a 510hp 6.0 liter V12 engine and you can order it for £135,000.
