"Design and Development of the AML V12: An inside perspective behind the scenes and under the bonnet"
While the V12 was slated to debut in the DB7 Vantage, it was, from the very start designed to both usher in and be the basis for a new era of many future vehicles at Aston Martin. The original objectives included: challenging Ferrari while being uniquely ‘Aston Martin’ by creating a new engine that pushed the boundaries in unique and exciting ways, returning Aston Martin to the forefront of Motorsports and developing and engine designed to be capable to adapt and grow with a whole new stable of future Aston Martin vehicles – all of which were not even on the drawing boards yet.
An informative talk will be presented by Anthony Musci. The V12 program literally started at Anthony’s desk as a young engineer in the Specialty Engine Design group within Ford Motor Company’s Advanced Powertrain Engineering. What started as an unofficial program without any official funding in the budget became the engine that powered Aston Martin to their position today. The V12 was not only at the heart of a whole stable of Aston Martin road vehicles but went on to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans (24 Heures Du Mans) GT1 category and is now back as 007’s car of choice.
Come join us for a fun and entertaining afternoon with Anthony as he recounts the AML V12 design and development. He will give you an inside look and share many funny and entertaining stories from the program. He will also answer the questions you always wanted to know about the V12 but just didn’t have the right guy to ask!
