Click above for a high-res gallery of the Aston Martin V12 Vantage RS.

Rumors began swirling late yesterday that Aston Martin CEO, Dr. Ulrich Bez, had confirmed that the V12 Vantage RS was headed to production. Unfortunately, the cited sources spanned from the totally obscure to the remarkably unlikely, and now, the path leads back to Dutch car Magazine Autovisie, which doesn't seem to have any article about the V12 Vantage online, except for its official unveiling.

Regardless, the reported stories say that the 600 hp, V12 Vantage RS will go on sale sometime next year as a limited production model, tipping the scales at a little over 3,500 pounds, and coming equipped with plenty of carbon fiber bits and a rear spoiler that deploys automatically at high speeds. Bez supposedly also confirmed that the DBS Roadster is on its way to production, expected sometime towards the middle of 2009.

      Quick question: Who would give his left nut for a V12 Vantage RS?
        • 6 Years Ago
        *Raises hand and hands you the scissors.*
          • 6 Years Ago
          ouch
        • 6 Years Ago
        That's why God gave us two =)
        • 6 Years Ago
        *fully raises both hands*

        On a note just as serious lol, is that bottom not-really-a-skirt thing that sticks out in the front new? My model R/C V8 Vantage has it for bumper protection, but I don't remember it being in the V8 Vantage.

        Yep, one is for the Vantage and the other the DBS

      left nut, first born, my soul... TAKE THEM ALL!! Whatever it takes to get one of these in my garage.
      • 6 Years Ago
      I'll take it, just not in that unflattering color.
        • 6 Years Ago
        That color is supposed to tie it in with Aston's new Gulf livery for the DBR9. In that context, it looks good.

      Oh my God..!
      I'm awfully glad to hear that RS is confirmed going into production. I wish though that Aston would drop its 0-62 mph to less than 4.0 seconds.
      Please Dr.Ulrich; Acceleration was Aston’s famous weakest-link, so just make this little Mako to Whacko a little bit hitting 0-62 mph in 3.7 seconds….!
