Aston Martin Vantage V12 spy shots
Aston Martin unveiled the V12 Vantage RS Concept at the end of 2007 and announced a production version will soon follow. First rumors suggest that it will make its world debut this year at the British Motor Show, but considering the car is still under development we won’t see it until early 2009.
AutoCar’s sources said that the production version will stay faithful to the concept as much as possible, but will be changed so it can be homologated for real-world use.
Under the hood there will be a 6.0-litre V12 engine that will produce around 550 hp. The Vantage V12 production version will also borrow bigger carbon ceramics brakes from the DBS.
