The Aston Martin V12 Vantage, the most powerful production Aston Martin’s sports car, is now available to U.S. customers benefit from the performance of the company’s driver training at the Michigan Proving Ground here.
Other vehicles available for one-day course are the DBS and the Rapide V8 Vantage.
The V12 Vantage, with 510 horsepower and 420 pounds-feet of torque, is capable of speeds up to 190 kilometers per hour. The two-seater is the company’s fastest and most agile sports car.
“The V12 Vantage is a thoroughbred sports car and the miles of track are on the course will give participants the opportunity to experience its capabilities during an exciting day of performance driving,” spokesman Julian Jenkins said.
Aston Martin Performance Driving Course was established five years ago, her goal for the participants to give “a chance to see the dynamic possibilities of an Aston Martin experience in a safe yet exciting high-speed environment.” In addition to the U.S. site, sessions are available at Millwood, England and Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium.
The course costs $ 2,500 – hardly cheap, except perhaps in comparison to the price of the V12 Vantage, which starts at $ 184,000.
