Hot rod. Yes, hot rod. You know the species well. Iconic American nomenclatures like Hemi and Big Block and Yenko come to mind. But exotic british sports cars? They’re certainly no slouches in the speed and handling department but to call them a hot rod…is that kosher? When it comes to vehicles like the Aston Martin Vantage V12, you bet your ass it is. We’re talking about a Porsche 911-sized footprint that has literally been stuffed like a sausage with V12 power from big brother DBS. The result is a well-heeled beast with one hell of a mill under its carbon fiber-encrusted hood.
