Following the ending of Virage coupe production in 1994, the company only offered two V8 models, the supercharged Vantage and Volante. The range was augented by the addition of the new V8 Coupe, introduced at the 1996 Geneva Motor Show. At a casual glance, the car looks just like a supercharged Vantage, to which is owes much; effectively a tamer version without the superchargers. The car features Vantage style front and rear styling, together with a chrome mesh grill and surround plus a less overt front air dam incorporating two round driving lamps.
Developed in conjunction with longtime technical partner @Cosworth, the new V12 had to satisfy a simple, yet extraordinary brief; to create the ultimate expression of the internal combustion engine.

Displacing 6.5-litres, the V12 sets exceptional new standards; a peak power output of 1000bhp at a mind-blowing 10,500rpm, before continuing on to a maximum rpm figure of 11,100: figures that are unprecedented for a naturally-aspirated, emissions-compliant road car application https://t.co/pXabBEQGiR
