DBS Roadster also expected
After releasing the first production pictures of its Rapide saloon, there is now a rumor from Aston Martin that the company will bring two new models to the Geneva Auto Show: a car based on the V12 Vantage RS Concept and a drop-top version of the flagship DBS.
We’re most excited about the possibility of a V12-powered Vantage. The concept car featured a 600hp version of Aston’s 6.0-liter V12 engine and weighed less than 3,530 lbs – thanks to gobs and gobs of carbon fiber parts. The concept car has an estimated 0-62 mph time of 4.0 seconds. We don’t expect a production version to be quite as powerful or as light as the concept but a more hard-core Vantage would certainly be welcomed.
The second model might not get our blood pumping quite as quickly but we certainly wouldn’t turn down the opportunity to drive a convertible version of the shockingly-good DBS. This vehicle is also significantly more likely to actually become a reality.
