The car also gets an adaptive damping suspension with three settings for a more comfortable, or sportier, ride.

Only 14 units of the 2018 Aston Martin V12 Vantage V600 will be built, including seven coupes and seven convertibles. As for price, we’ll have to ask the group of customers who ordered and purchased them all…
