Our friends from the Netherlands are back at it, capturing a hot new car before anybody else. Sporting U.S.-spec orange side markers, these special Vantage V8s made a brief appearance and started rumors that we might be in store for a sportier new version of the already fantastic Vantage from Aston Martin. They don't look like the Rally GT or Prodrive editions we saw at Goodwood, and are definitely not the N24s we talked about and saw at Pebble, but beyond that we have only speculation.

Sporting a minor facelift, some DBS lenses out back, a little less bling on the mirrors and thicker rocker panels, could this be the long-rumored RS edition? If so, we could be looking at a V8 Vantage that weighs a significant 300 pounds less and has 80 hp more than the current model. While we love the current car, those changes and the styling differences we see here, might make this thing just about perfect. It would certainly match up better with the likes of an Audi R8, Porsche Turbo and others that have the standard V8 Vantage in their crosshairs.

Thanks for the tip, Sam!

      Looks like LED accents in the headlights are starting to become a trend

      I think its amazing how pretty much everyone thinks, and agrees that Aston makes the most beautiful cars in the world right now.

      I'm sure there are people who are going to reply otherwise, but they are wrong and liars.

        You can't be a liar or wrong with an opinion, Vector...but I agree, Astons are wonderful.

      Most beautiful car ever. The engine doesn't even matter so much. But with more power and better handling, it only gets better. I'd take ten of these before I'd take one Ferrari. And I'd rather have one of these than ten Ferraris.

        wait, seriously?

        in the unlikely but desired event that i have the cash for either, i'm quite sure there'd be a Pozzi Blue machine with a silver prancing horse in my garage. Beauty only goes so far; performance and pedigree goes farther...

        ...at least to me.

      If they get the wieght down and power up this car is as close to perfect as a sports car comes...except for the price
