V8 Vantage RS Spyshots









Summary from the description in Dutch:

Supposedly the upcoming RS version of Aston's V8 Vantage will shed ~150 kg (300+ lbs) and gain 40 bhp. Noticable on the pictures are more prominent sideskirts, LED headlights and DBS-style rearlights.

Even though I would love 40HP more than anyone but they will not have the HP to close between models. DBS is 510 and it was just released DB9 is 450 and Vantage is 380 DBS had room to bump HP because Vanquish stopped production.
This only an opinion but it makes sense based on the past experience Headlights are the same as current

Yup they look the same to me as well, I was merely translating the Dutch description. I think 420 vs 450 hp is still enough of a gap to justify the difference pricewise, esp. since this will be an exclusive (hardcore? hopefully.) version.

It looks like there are LEDs on the inside of the lights. The current V8V has those? I've never noticed them before.

Sexy as usual for AM, but it needs an additional 140HP, not 40

why? 420 is a good compramising number for HP... putting a ridiculious amount of HP makes no sense in a practicality stand point for the v8... that defeats the purpose of the car... you want HP get a viper

They still didn't fix the front bumper which IMO was the worst part of the car.

Why it looks gorgeous with the led headlights and the bumper looks and suites the DB9 and V8 vantage well especially the grill which stands out more.
