“Technically, it is unequivocally possible. The engine brook has been designed to replicate that of a DB11, so a pick-up points and so on are all there. The V12 would fit though a need for endless modifications.

An event

I advise they use a forgive of wanting some-more room for a V12 to quarrel behind from a stupidities of that front finish – building it and afterwards fortifying it. And if we was compelling a oppulance branded sports automobile (AM is a tellurian Top 10 oppulance brand) we wouldn’t benefaction it in what looks like a a signature colour of a good recognized Ford. 


The choice of a manual.

The choice of a manual.

In itself a reason to rejoice.


Of march they will.

There’s no doubt eventually they’ll put a V12 in there.


Just wish they’d repair a looks first.
