    Aston V12 Vantage RS Pictures!

    Per this news posting:
    http://www.rennteam.com/showflat.php?Cat...0&fpart=all

    Here are more previously unpublished pictures of the car.

    PS, notice how the ugly spoiler retracts completely flush against the boot of the car?
















    Re: Aston V12 Vantage RS Pictures!

    Tks for the pics.

    But the color and the vents on the hood... ouch...

    Re: Aston V12 Vantage RS Pictures!

    As a AMV8 owner, I may be a bit bias on my view. But this ruins the good looks and clean lines of the original.

    Of course, the beauty of the original car was due mostly to the very clean lines.

    I am even slightly turned off about the N400's side skirts, they seem a bit out of place. Not a big deal though.

    Right now I am stuck between an N400 or a regular car for spring 08~

    Re: Aston V12 Vantage RS Pictures!

    One more pic of how the spoiler hides completely away.

    Re: Aston V12 Vantage RS Pictures!

    seriously bad looking

    Re: Aston V12 Vantage RS Pictures!

    That hood HAS to go, omg what were they thinking!?

    Re: Aston V12 Vantage RS Pictures!

    Might look quite a bit better in darker colors. Should hide the hideous vents in the hood a bit.

    Re: Aston V12 Vantage RS Pictures!

    Better ventilation for the extra heat generated by the possible supercharger Bez hinted at a few years ago.

    Re: Aston V12 Vantage RS Pictures!

    I like
    but the hood

    They were thinking that a V12 engine producing greater than 600HP creates a lot of heat and that it is a good idea to allow such heat easy egress from the engine bay. It also mimics the hood on the DBRS9 race car from which the engine is derived. I personally like it. It will give people an idea of what they are dealing with when the car comes up on them. Pricing over $200K (rumored) puts it out of my grasp though!

    Re: Aston V12 Vantage RS Pictures!

    I was about to ask if the wing was retractable until I saw the last picture. Very interesting car. Since the engine is a V12, does that mean the transmission was changed per engine change?

    Re: Aston V12 Vantage RS Pictures!

    somehow Astons loose their classiness when they get such tunning makeovers...

    Re: Aston V12 Vantage RS Pictures!

    looks like a pimp-car to me. whit those weels and this spoiler.

    this has nothing to do whit RS (Rennsport)

    Re: Aston V12 Vantage RS Pictures!

    Does they try to compete with the Nissan GT-R design wise?

    Never seen such an ugly AM these days...

    Re: Aston V12 Vantage RS Pictures!

    They need to find other way to fix engine heat problem, than car remind me the dress up 350Z to pretend AM, its the reivse...

    And another (Frankel's take):

    Quote:

    "I've driven it and it is, without any doubt, the most extraordinary road car ever to display the Aston wings on its nose... it is a track-inspired, uncompromising driver's weapon that shares more conceptual ground with the most sporting Ferraris, Porsches and Lamborghinis than any Aston Martin produced in the last 40 years."
