According to Dutch car magazine, Autovisie, Aston Martin has finally stepped out and announced it will send the sleek and sophisticated V12 Vantage RS into limited production. The report says that Aston Martin CEO, Dr. Ulrich Bez, has confirmed that the company will also be rolling out the DBS Roadster.
The V12 Vantage RS will be available in Mako Blue, and is expected to hit the roads some time in 2009 loaded with 600 horsepower, that propels it from zero to 60 mph (or 0-100 km/h under four seconds. With enough carbon fiber bits to leave it weighing in at just 3,500lbs (1,600kg), this makes the V12 Vantage RS the fastest Aston Martin production car to date.
Not much information has been released on the DBS Roadster except that it is scheduled for release around mid-2009, though some sneak peeks show that one can expect a soft top car with 512 horsepower behind it.
