Thought the old Vantage was gone for good? Well, think again. Aston Martin has just announced a limited run of 14 "new" special edition cars, called the V12 Vantage V600. It's based on the previous-generation Vantage, powered by a 600-horsepower version of the company's old naturally aspirated V12, using the dogleg seven-speed manual from the V12 Vantage S.

Aston says it's building the V600 as a customer commission through the company's Q by Aston Martin program. Highlights include a full carbon fiber body, a quad-exit exhaust, center-lock forged aluminum wheels, three-stage adaptive damping, a carbon fiber interior trim, and lightweight seats. Drivers will also benefit from a billet gear shifter. Styling is inspired by the 1998 V8 Vantage V600—the only other Aston to wear the V600 badge.

Of the 14 cars set to be produced, seven will be coupes, and seven will be convertibles. Aston Martin hasn't given a price, saying the car is "available on request" with first deliveries starting in quarter three of this year. The company also says this is the very last run of old Vantages, so if you want one, you better act fast.
