380 kW Aston baby blows its top

2009-05-19 07:42
The rumours have been circulating for a while now that the new Aston Martin V12 Vantage RS would eventually shake off its roof to transform into a convertible. It's happening; we have proof.

This cabriolet was recently snapped testing around the Nurburgring and shows that, like the coupe, this model should be quite extreme.

Although not an out-and-out track machine (the RS in its nomenclature is for "road sport") this convertible will still benefit from some enviable firepower thanks to its 6.0-litre V12 powerplant.

It shares this power with the V12 Vantage coupe shown at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year. Although it was said that only 1 000 units of the coupe would be produced, output of 380 kW and 570 Nm at 6 500 and 5 750 r/min, respectively, should win it - and the drop-top version - a fair number of fans.
