As for the V8 vantage, latest rumour per AMOC is that the 09 will recieve the same power hike as the N400 Special editon. 400bhp flat.

The N400 got this due to a tweaked ecu and airbox (like what porsche does with special editions). Not sure if the displacement will go up... or if the other rumoured interior changes/ "S" Model will show up this year. Geneva is close...

If you ask me, and judging by sales, dealer feedback, dealer principal talk, inventory listings... If it was a matter of one this year and the other the next year, the V8 needed the facelift more this year than the DB9
