With Aston Martin busy releasing the Rapide, preparing the Cygnet city car, running the One-77 flat out, gearing up for a fresh assault on Le Mans and toying again with the whole Lagonda project, it's been a while since we've heard anything about the Vantage.
The entry-level model in Aston's range received some upgrades for the 2010 model year, including updated lights, sills, wheels, stereo and a cut to its carbon emissions. Now a crop of spy shots has been circling the intertubes showing another Vantage undergoing cold-weather testing.

Sources can't pinpoint whether this is a V8 or V12 model. Judging by the lack of louvres on the hood, installed on the V12 Vantage to keep the big engine breathing in such a tight space, our money's on the slant eight. If that's the case, the V8 Vantage could be getting the diffuser from the V12 model. The rear lip spoiler has also grown, but it's hard to tell much more than that.

      They need to offer the supercharged (jag) version of the V8.

      Right now it's really not any better in performance than my 370Z, and that's just not right. I realize that it's much better looking, the interior is gorgeous, and the sound of that V8 is a delight, but still - it needs more oomph or less weight.

      They body kit and wheels look good. And yeah, a supercharger would be nice in that small package.

      Slant 8? The Vantage has a straight 8 canted at an angle? I'm pretty sure you meant "bent 8".

        Quit being retards and trying to use different words that make no sense when writing articles. Sometimes I feel like I'm reading the work of a freshman in high school. The articles are all filled with big "fluff" words that either make no sense, have no meaning, or just don't need to be used.

        Now put your dictionary/thesaurus away and start typing like normal people.
