Spyshots: 2010 Aston Martin V12 Vantage RS Convertible
Although this is only pure speculation, it might seem like the convertible is going to be powered by a 6.0-liter powerplant, with the maximum output going in the same range as for the coupe - 550 horsepower. Still, the RS badge - which actually stands for "Road Sport" - is indicating a massive amount of power so we're still waiting for some official specs to find out how much power this car is going to retain under its bonnet.
The Coupe flavor of Aston Martin V12 Vantage RS was powered by a 6.0-liter V12 engine that produced 447 kW (600 hp), which represents an increase of more than 164 kW (219 horsepower) over the standard V8 Vantage. In terms of performance, the car boasts fairly outstanding figures, with the V12 Vantage RS jumping from 0 to 100 km/h in no less than 4 seconds.
In order to snatch the maximum possible performance, the manufacturer turned to weight reduction, with the car weighing around 1,500 kilos. This means V12 Vantage RS boasts around 300 kW (402 hp) of power per ton.
That being said, we'll now let you enjoy these spyshots and don't forget to get back soon to find even more details about the V12 Vantage RS Convertible.
